The Lyrics

After going through "The Best of the Electric Company" DVDs, I now feel ready to do a PG-13-rated parody of one of their G-rated songs written for the show. If you don't remember the show, or you do remember the show but not the sketch, here's the premise: Luis Avalos (the bald guy who sometimes had a mustache, but not in this sketch) is dressed as a mouse, inside a trumpet that Morgan Freeman is playing. Here's a link to the OS lyrics:
(instrumental opening)

Trying to live with a strumpet
isn’t so easy, you know.
But when you are a dude
in need of some nude
you take her, for that's where you go.

Trying to live with a strumpet
often is messy, I fear.
But when you are a guy
you must often cry
over girl who's a pain in the rear.

She goes on out to clubs and bars.
She's traveled far and wide.
This chick's with chaps, off everywhere
and that is why I've cried.

Yes, trying to live with a strumpet
you don't know the trouble I've got.
But I really can’t curse
‘cause my friend has it worse.
He’s trying it with a harlot!

(instrumental close)
Yeah, I know: If it's "a pain in the rear," you're doing it the wrong way. It's a figure of speech, people!
