The Lyrics

When I came home from the game
I knew I was in for some pain
My brand new uniform was very dirty
And I looked at my watch
It said 10:11
My curfew was half past seven
Again I got a red, red ass at home!

Yes, my daddy came to meet me
'Hind the shed where he always beat me
Again I got a red, red ass at home!

The next morning I was standing
At the wrong bus stop
'Cause I really do get off on playing hooky
The dean called my dad and said I was missing
And so there ain't much room for guessing
I'll get a red, red ass when I get home!

Yes, my daddy came to meet me
'Hind the shed where he always beat me
Again I got a red, red ass at home!

Then I awoke and heard around me
A sound that did confound me
Phil and Brent on the radio doin' a phone scam
With their character, Roy D. Mercer
Telling this old factory worker
I could pay or get a red, red ass at home!

Yes, he'd come here to beat me
In front of my big old oak tree
And I would have a red, red ass at home!

Funny!! 5's

The first verse threw me, because "Red Ass" (usually printed as "R.A.") is an old baseball term for a player with a chip on his shoulder. This song could also appeal to A Room Full of Monkeys, but for a very different reason.

Funny and what a coincidence. We've got a band here in St. Louis called Red Ass Jones and the Goldbondsmen. The Pacholek fella's right about the term "red ass", but I know it as an old ironworker saying. i.e. "Jones has a case of the red ass." Kinda how I got my nickname.

(ABC) Not digging Tom Jones--never heard a song by him--not my style--so reading it being shred apart was kinda nice. 'Again I got a red, red ass at home!' I remember those days--I can't believe spanking is actually illegal--today's society, government controls everything. . .

Yes, brings me back to the days of driving 65 in a 30mph lane to beat a 10pm curfew...risking far worse if there was ever a cop on that road! Great idea for the song, I enjoyed it.

(ABC) I've written too many twisted parodies myself to criticize THIS one!

(ABC) I enjoyed this one, but it did bring back some painful memories of my childhood. :-)

(ABC) And here I was worried my entry for this round was too sadistic. This was spankin' good!
