The Lyrics

This parody is dedicated to all those farmers and homeowners who lost their property by foreclosures
Take This Cob and Shove It
You know where it's s'posed ta' go
I'm not movin' on,
Ain't losin' my farm, here
For back mortgage dough..
Ya' see that big bird a' circlin' high,
It's a Buzzard, not a crow..
Take This Cob and Shove It
You know where it's meant to go

I been plowin' all a' these acres
For nearly fifty years
Before that, my Daddy farmed here,
Cultivatin' corn and tears..
Now, I've seen a lot of poor folks lose
Their land and everything they own
So, jump back in your big Cadillac
And just re-adjust that loan..

Take This Cob and Shove It
In a place the sun won't shine
I ain't givin up
This wood and dirt's my treasure
Memories.won't leave behind
It's been a rough year, high prices, bad drought
Now, we're targets cuz' we're poor..
Take This Cob and Shove It
Or that knob there on the door..

Feel that hot breath, it's my Doberman dog
Old Henry ain't no fool
He thinks you're his big boned dinner
Jaws are leakin' drool..
Just needs to hear me speak one word
And he won't have to hear it twice..
You might wanna' start some backward motion
Cuz' old Hank ain't all that nice..

Take This Cob and Shove It
Just as far as you can ram
My woman and I,
We ain't spring chickens
We're stickin' where we am...
We're stubborn as Hell, and tough
As our bull,
Harvest time you'll get your cash
Now, Take This Cob and Shove It
Before I do somethin' rash..

Yeah, Take This Cob and Shove It
Before I do somethin' rash..

Take This Cob and Shove It..

(Harmonica fade out)

Steinbeckian. Fits the tone of the OS well.

That's the corniest parody I've ever seen. But there's a few kernels of truth to it. All fives for going against the grain.
