The Lyrics

Tryin’ hard to piss off none…
guy fought his maw, but his maw won,
guy fought his maw, but the maw won.
Up he don’t dummy, and his mouth runs.
Guy fought his maw, but the maw won,
guy fought his maw, but his maw won.

He says things tasteless, at best, some things bad—
and so he is shunned.
Embarrasses his mom and his dad,
guy stops his maw but then says some-
thing that’s so raw that his ma’s bummed.

Mom says, “OK, that’s enough, son!
Your rotten maw has to be done
with epithets that wound and stun.
Instead I would like you to try puns.”
Guy shocks his maw as he makes one,
but it’s so raw that his ma’s stunned.

Even more tasteless…she frown and scowls, “Drat!
I see you still ain’t done!”
He slaps her, but then she pulls out a gat.
He fought his ma, but his ma won.
He’s shot by ma with a small gun.
