The Lyrics

I don't like to brag, but.....
Baby, I need a winch
When I
Take out my nineteen inch
Biggest you ever saw
It'd make you drop your jaw

It's a
Powerful tool for sure
It's much
More than most can endure
I'm a
Man whose jeans need new seams
Slingin' a load

Maybe you've heard my name
Yes, I'm gainin' lots of fame
All ages, shapes and hues
I'll nail anything that moves

I go
All night and I'm half-spent
Man, I should be chargin' rent
I'm a
God, a human tripod
Slingin' a load

And, at all the county fairs in all of the states
They call me "The King of the Three-Legged Race"
I built me a room for the trophies I own
It really isn't fair "cause I'm runnin' alone

But then a
Twister downtown today
Sucked all my clothes away
I was
Standin' there in the nude
My shortcomings were reviewed

And, so
Most everybody saw
It's the
Size of a losin' straw
I'm a
Bag of wind, yeah I been
Slingin' a load

F5 + F5 + F5 for a tornadic turn of events that neither sucks nor blows.

Not long for the shore, if ya know what I mean? Here's an extra five, but they ain't extra inches.

Cute ! Reminds me of a few men I've known..... fives at best.... and fives for YOUR best !
Royce Miller - April 14, 2006 - Report this comment
Well, I'm all for happy endings, so I was hoping for something different than the tornado coming along....but this is quite imaginative, a good story.

Hey, Holmes-boy, in your dreams.... LOL Rick, seriously, LOL! TMGLTM, e.g. "I'm a God, a human tripod" Perfect pacing made for fun sing-along. Five on the Satire-(Bart) Simpson scale.

Great hung humor, here....with a humble ending.. 555 for quality, not quantity..

I used to think my "King Of The Ho's' was good, but it couldn't touch this with a ten foot pole...and I'm 9feet, eleven inches short :-))

How can you come up short with 555?
Jason - March 07, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC-S) It was good.

(ABC3) A twist(er) ending made this parody stand out in the crowd! (nudge).
bobpiecheese - March 09, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3-S) Now I see why you went 'commando' during the July SOTM! Any undies would splice your nadges in two! Well done!

(ABC3-S) I have to agree with Agi. . .that was unexpected at the end to say the least, lots of padding huh?. . .what was that about profane lyrics? I don't see anything profane. . .just really bizzare in a good way.
Michael McVey - March 12, 2007 - Report this comment
Well, Dave, what was profane is that it turned out to be as fake as Brat-ney's boobs (lol). A few pacing issues, but nothing major, and definitely funny.---MM

(ABC3S) I was sure I'd commented on this but apparently no - one of your best Rick, and that's saying something - I dunno how you did it but you pretty well managed a laugh a line - 555

555 Incher?!?!!??!?! Damn you're well hung
Red Ant - March 14, 2007 - Report this comment
Stu took the words from my mouth. Favorite line was "It really isn't fair "cause I'm runnin' alone". Great twist ending. This parody reminds me of one of Rodney Dangerfield's funniest lines: "All men are created equal - what bullsh*t!". 555

(ABC) When I saw this title, I thought "slinging a load of what?" Now I see. You know what they say, those who don't have much... usually parody about it? LOL Good job, Rick.

Mwahhahahahaha How did I miss this first time around? Marvellously (im)modest :-)
