The Lyrics

I know this is a bit late (should've done this three weeks or so ago), but here's another Michael Phelps parody. Jing Bei is Beijing turned around, in case you're wondering--(site of 2008 Summer olympics).
Swimmin’ near the dock with some hay

Tokin’ in the mornin' sun
I'll be swimmin' when the evenin' come
Munching the snacks rolled in
And then I’m munchin’ caraway, some bran, yeah

I'm swimmin' near the dock, smokin’ hay
Whiffin’ the highs, pipin’ hay
Ooo, I'm just swimmin' near the dock, smokin’ hay
Wasted high

I left my home in Balt’more
Headed for the Crisco can
'Cause I've had munchies, I need more
And look! those munchies! gonna need some hay

So I'm just gonna swim near the dock, smoke some hay
Munching the Wise, Frito Lays
Ooo, I'm smokin' near the docks in Jing Bei
Wasted high
Bakin’, cookin’, “stovetop range”
Ready Whip still tastes the same

I can eat what ten people eat in one day
So I guess I'll relax my brain, yes
eatin' here, Chicken breast bones
And this eating fest won't leave me alone
It's two thousand meals, I’m full!
Just inhaled, this rocked my dome

Now, I'm just gonna toke near the dock, no ashtrays
Catching the highs, pipe some hay
Oooo-wee, smokin' near the Wok of Jing Bei
Wasted high

Thanks, Alvin, Mark, John. Do I get some Gold Medal Flour too? It's funny how he got eight (ate) gold medals. Maybe eight bags of gold medal flour.
