The Lyrics

Looks like John's not the only angry old man in the family. His brother, Joe, called 911 in Alexandria, VA, last week to complain about traffic. When they told him that 911 was only for emergencies, he used an expletive and hung up. From the transcript: Operator: Alexandria 911, state your emergency. Caller: Well, it's not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic's coming the other way across the drawbridge? Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause) Caller: "[Expletive]" (caller hangs up) The operator called the caller back and received this message: "Hi this is Joe McCain I can't take this message now because I'm involved in a very (inaudible) important political project... I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John." The operator then called the number back and left a message for Joe about how it is illegal to use a 911 number for anything other than emergencies. An outraged Joe called the operator back to complain about being read the riot act about calling 911 and got read the riot act again.
9-1-1 you cuss out,
Then you're a lummox lout,
Joe 'Cain.
You're stuck outside of town
In traffic, come unwound,
Joe bane.

You ain't right
In the head,
You ain't right,
Joe 'Cain.

If you call, abuse
Operator. . .makes news,
Joe 'Cain.
I hope that there's none
In your glovebox, a gun,
Joe 'Cain.

You ain't right
In the head,
You ain't right--
Slow brain.

Thought your brother, John,
Was the one who raved on,
Joe pain.
Located in back
Where's "Joe the Plumber" crack:
Yo' brain.

Your bro's fight
Veering right--
Down from sight--
The drain.

He excites:
"F()cu you! Shite!
Eat me! Bite!"
Joe 'Cain.

Oh yes, Captain jack, I heard about this very transcript on K G O radio! All I will say is that I know well, about the tempers of " C " bros . . . Elect CowboyDave for Alameda County sheriff.
