The Lyrics

I store guns and other loot (no bills of sale...)
Bent - with scum I’ve dealt, tough nuts, they be
Mugs are out to get me
Threat displays, extreme
Lockup joint’s the vault of all my schemes

Yeah, come to my place, 'cus I’m a receiver
Bring a case - pick out what you’d like
There’s the rub - I’m a receiver
A wheeler-dealer, don’t deny

I court cash, no point of sale or Visa thing
See the stores I have: excess I’ve got
Docks and trucks supply’n
Here you get wholesale
Yes indeed, no fun buy’n through retail

Got some hot TVs? Well, I’m a receiver
Cheap CDs - much booty can find
Down the pub, I’m a receiver
I’ve got a deal, let’s talk outside

Fuzz was out to get me
They tumbled my regime
To the joint they hauled me (crushed my dreams)
To the wall I face, now I’m a receiver
Sought embrace of route in my hind
In the Scrubs - I’m a receiver
A woody cleaver - I’m a bride!

Yes my rump’s ablaze now I’m a receiver
Re-appraise vocation of mine

Sad I’m a receiver
Sad I’m a receiver...

For some reason, I knew this parody would be, er...heading south, as it were, just from the title. 555

Well, I thought it was going to be about satellite TV, but guess I was wrong too. 5's :-)

A Fagin fence has to take his business up the river where he ends up behind fences as a reciever - he'll probably need to steal 555 Asspirin to recover from that!

Well, I was gonna ask you what I could get for Three 5's, but I see from your site that you're a little, uh, "backed-up" right now and not in a position that allows you service retail customers. Does that mean you're only accomodating "Wholesale" customers now? Is there any truth to the rumor that

Carmine, me good lad. Clearly this jack-the-lad's muscled in on *my* manor! But his game's been tumbled. I've seen the Scrubs a few times myself. You forgot where you is at, Sunshine? You need a bit of an 'oliday, me ol' mucka, you're confused wot side on the pond you is on!

M & P absolute masterpiece here you two hobbits. Sorry about Carmine - I left my computer unlocked and he got onto it and went off on you two. He's been depressed lately because of the bad economy and has been "replacing" a lot of his staff. Just hope I'm not treading on thin ice explaining this. Sorry he put you two out of business. Hope your sentences were light for your crimes. Write some parodies about prison life - we'd all love to see these.

Absolutely 5+ material - quite entertaining. I love how it tells a story - great wrap-up to a great parody.
