The Lyrics

for a prank...i uncovered
i'm runnin' bare...goods were displayed
past grandmothers...spied by two sisters
oh how lovely...i parade
little white tush...almost glowin'
such an bubbly...sight to see
i imbibed...some vodka doubles
then i tossed...my BVDs

runnin' bare...my little white tush
looked so dumb...but, hell, i was high
runnin' bare...off in a big rush
i was drunk...that ain't no lie

the weather's grim...i start to shiver
how i quiver...as i fly
i couldn't feel...my little white tush
freezin' off...my underside
in the moonlight...you could see me
scarin misses...shockin' dames
their little hearts...start beatin' faster
cause i put...their men to shame

runnin' bare...my little white tush
looked so dumb...but, hell, i was high
runnin' bare...off in a big rush
i was drunk...that ain't no lie

runnin' bare...i slipped in water
little white tush...down, it came
then my legs...wrapped 'round each other
i went sprawlin'...and came up lame
my poor knee...crushed on the cement
a ragin' pain there...kept me down
two big cops...joined up together
and they dragged...my ass, downtown

run in bare...my little white tush
tossed in jail...embarrassed, am i
run in bare...sleepin' my drunk off
what a stunt...for me to try

This was pretty damned funny, alvin...and that's the bare truth ~ ~ ~ but, hey, at least your character didn't spill hot candle wax on his bared private areas...probably would have if he'd been toking really good "doob", too...

Good job...funny write...actually, I recall an old Ben Colder )Sheb Wooley).... parody, with this title...but don't recall how it went..

You're on a winning streak. (Boogedy-boogedy.) The only thing keeping this from perfection was calling your posterior a "little white duff," to correspond with Little White Dove, that fetching Shawnee minx. Bob Shannon of CBS-FM, New York's Oldies Station (back before it was that wack Jack 101.1) once played the original and said that it actually has a happy ending: Running Bear and Little White Dove survived. Running Bear signed a contract to play fullback for Chicago, and Little White Dove founded a soap company.

Yet another one I had on my to-do list. That's two in two days. Freaky. "i imbibed...some vodka doubles/then i tossed...my BVDs" - great stuff.
