The Lyrics

Me and my ol' redneck cousin,
Dreamin' up new games every nite and day
Bought some bowlin' pins, inflatable and plastic
Blew 'em fat with air..pumped the balls up, too

While our outboard's hummin'
Loud Larry's finger drummin'
(goin') bowlin', bowlin', bowlin' on the river

Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin' on the river

From his innertube, Ol' Larry
Sets up all the pins, numbers one thru ten
Linin' up the balls, to ram 'em with our boat bow
When it's not a strike, roar back, ram one again

Next up, Shug and Betty,
Just met, and goin' steady,
Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin' on the river

Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin' on the river

We all come down to the river,
Bring our broads and Buds, and our boats to bowl
Cletus, Jake, and Murray, from their trailers, scurry,
Worry 'bout no gutter, in it, no balls roll..

Rad-i-os are blarin'
"Splish Splash" by Bobby Darin'
Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin' on the river

Bowlin', bowlin', bowlin' on the river

Play wet sports quite often,
Next week it's water golfin'
Golfin', golfin', golfin' on the river
(No sand traps, just one huge water hazard)

Golfin', golfin', golfin' on the river

Farce - I think you invented a brand new sport - Water Bowlo. I like how you can really wack it up when you write. Only the Farce can come up with this sort of stuff and get away with it. Well done.
