The Lyrics

This parody is submitted as part of the White Trash Album, as conceptualized by Amiright author Matthias. This also serves as a concrete example of how to improve a parody from the first draft, as shown by my OTHER "Downsized" parody, which can be found on my author page.
I got fired, the slip is colored pink
I got fired, I should put up a stink
My rent check for the trailer is beginnin' to shrink
Ho, ho, ho

I got fired, I think that I should sue
I got fired, now I'll start a tobacco chew
Maybe I should tell Sue, but I'm not sure what I should do

I'd say I fell for the con
From Old Slowpoke, my boss at the farm
You know he's so cheap, he nickels and dimes
He owes me three weeks of my overtime
But that bastard's everything I'm not
So that suits me fine

I got fired, I'm goin' into debt
I wonder who got me fired, I think it was because of Chet
I sing with Johnny Paycheck
But you know I ain't down yet!

Well sir, 'fore I visit the john
Do you want a smoke?
It'll do ya no harm
'Cause they ain't cheap, not at all like my boss
He owes me three weeks, I'm feelin' the loss
But that bastard's everything I'm not
And that suits me fine
Yeah, that bastard's everything I'm not
And that suits me fine
Now I'll take another shot of watermelon wine

(Homer, Homer, Homer, crack open another one...)

it makes me think, Aggy - do they not allow baptisms involving the name "Chet" to proceed if either of their parents have a full set of teeth? - lol - very funny - 555

"I sing with Johnny Paycheck" for some reason really tickled me. Lovely work, Agri. 555

Good times. I remember this amazing project. The person who created the idea of turning the Beatles White Album into a musical about rednecks is a brilliant man. Oh wait that was me! Just kidding this is a great parody man with or without the contest.

Yours matches the original tone and lyrics very well.. Damn you, Chet! My favorite line: I got fired, the slip is colored pink
Max Power - February 06, 2013 - Report this comment
Then he goes postal and swore that Paul is dead. I blame Chet as well.

(ABC) I'm honestly not sure what to make of this. Maybe it's something about redneck culture that I don't know, but this didn't really seem that funny. It just seemed like you standard country "oh woe is me" kinda song. Again, maybe it's just me not knowing anything about rednecks, but this parody just didn't click with me.

Never heard that Beatles song before, but you did a good job matching up the pacing. Nice work!
