The Lyrics

I've been watching a lot of reruns of The Beverly Hillbillies these days. Barely even trying, I came up with this little ditty in less than twenty minutes... It's funnier if you sing it like Flatt and Scruggs...
Come listen to my story of Britney Spears…
Big pop star used to wear Mickey Mouse ears.
And then one day she met Kevin Federline…
And into her house he brought beer and wine…
Alcohol, that is! Hard liquor! Drunk-driving!

Well, first thing you know, Britney’s had some kids.
Kevin ruined her life and her career hit the skids.
People said, rehab is the place she ought to be…
So they loaded her into a truck and took her off at no fee.
Hospital, that is! Doctors! Straps on the beds!

Well, now it’s time to say good-bye to Britney and her mind.
Kevin’s out of her life; that’s one good sign.
You’re all invited here to see if you can help her…
Whoops! Turns out, we couldn’t even keep her!
Escaped, that is! Into the wind! Loose in society….

You all try to find her, you hear….

Loved it for the most part, nothing wrong with the idea, but a bit too wordy in some spots to where the pacing almost falls apart. Suggestion for second line, first verse: "Big pop star, used to be a Mouseketeer."

Very funny! There are some problems with the pacing, and it seems to me as though part of the song is missing.

I agree with the two previous comments that there are a few pacing issues but other than that very good! 355
