The Lyrics

In the event of incorrect interpretation...Sat' Night Special is abbreviated slang for "Saturday Night Special"...the weapon, not a TV show
If you're walkin' through the ghetto
You better watch your back
Better walk like you belong there
A lotta' swag and slack
Be aware of your surroundings
Let your eyeballs keep a scan
Don't be actin' like no choir boy
You gotta look like you're the man

CHORUS:
Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's barrel on you
Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's barrel on you
Lest a Sat' night Special
Shine it's barrel on you
Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's deadly killin' barrel on you..

Yonder come gang members
They're wearin' colors of red
Don't show no intimidation,
Or Buddy, you are dead!
They wear those colors proudly
And on them no-one must tread
You better hope they pass by
Keep lookin' straight ahead...

CHORUS

If you're cruisin' through L.A.
Boy, you better buy a map
No place for ramblin' at night
Just wear a good thinkin' cap
Lotta' trouble could find you
Never throw no weight around
Keep your cool, and be street smart
Know the dangers of a town...

Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's barrel on you
Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's barrel on you
Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's barrel on you
Lest a Sat'night Special
Shine it's deadly killin' barrel on you...

Hey, this is a fantastic parody of our song...but the first word of our band name is spelled Creedence (with a double E). I see that mistake all the time. Anyway, here's perfect vote #4.

John Fogerty, the "double E" is so cool! Did you steal the idea from Condoleezza Rice, or did she steal it from you?
