The Lyrics

A truly straw-grasping parody of Little Anthony & the Imperials' 1969 novelty hit, "Shimmy, Shimmy, Ko-Ko-Bop"
“Timmy, Gimme Cocoa Puffs”

Whoa, oh oh ohohohoh - Wah!
Whoa, oh oh ohohohoh - Wah!

Chorus:
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!

Sittin’ in the breakfast nook
Hopin’ for some chow.
Mamma say “Ain’t gonna cook,
Feed yoursef somehow.”
Timmy come along, sho’ nuff,
Lassie by his side.
Dog, she fetch him Cocoa Puffs
Wag her tail wit’ pride.

I say
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!

If yo’ t’ink’ what happen den
Like some TV jingle
It ain’t … ya betta’ t’ink again,
Dis make yo’ scalp tingle:
I say “Lassie, git me some”
She look at Tim real calm
He say “git yo’ own, ya bum,
Unless ya grease m’ palm.”

I say
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!

Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!

I cain’t reach de’ cupboard, so,
had t’ pay de price …
Life ain’t like no TV show
Dog an’ boy ain’t nice!
If dey fin’ ya in quicksand
Dog’ll grab yo’ t’roat
Den dey sell a helpin’ hand
Fo’ de price Tim quote.
Timmy say “Dat bizness, now”
An’ Lassie say “Bow-wow!”

I say
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Cocoa Puffs!
Timmy, gimme Puffs!

(Fade, repeating chorus)

... and you thought the original lines were doggerel! My question about my own lyrics is, just how desperately hungry must the narrator have been to eat, much less pay for, Cocoa Puffs? Yuk! :-) © Stan Hall

Awwww..i LIKE cocoa puffs. Or at least I did - I think they've since 'improved' all the flavour out of them. Anyway, very unusual parody.
