The Lyrics

In order to do a song about both of them, I needed a guy with enough talent to cancel them out. Whever can I find one? Memphis. A "gravy train" refers to a depraved gorging on luxuries, since someone else foots the bill. Something Elvis' friends would've known about. Still, they had more class than Britney Spears, who finally proved that she had more class than Hubby Number Two, Kevin Federline.
(instrumental opening)

Train I ride
sixty I.Q. strong.

Train I ride
sixty I.Q. strong.

Well, that gravy train
of my baby is gone.

Gravy train
sends me round, round the bend.

Gravy train
sends me round, round the bend.

Well, I lost my baby
and my glory days now end.
Oh, whoa, now they end.

Gravy train
it's gone, she calls me a jerk.

Gravy train
it's gone, she calls me a jerk.

Since I lost my baby
I guess I'll have to go to work.
Oh, yeah, go to work.

(instrumental break)

Gravy train
since I couldn't dance or sing.

Gravy train
couldn't write a doggone thing.

Well, I lost my baby.
Guess I'll have to sell my bling.
Oh, no, not my bling!

Ooh, whoo...


(instrumental fadeout)
Premiering this week on VH1: Kevin Federline is having the "Worst Week Ever!" Well, it could be worse: He could be a Republican Congressman! He's dumb enough, tacky enough, and disrespectful enough toward women to be one!

Britny's on the gravy train herself, thanks to legions of tasteless fans. Ahhh but who am I to judge?

Who are you to judge, Yoidy? Didn't you just get elected to Congress? Then again, if you're not on the Judiciary Committee...
