The Lyrics

I know - I know - I know bandleader, Sammy Kaye first had this way back in the "Forties" - but I'm doing Gilley's version
If I sent a roach to you,
To get revenge for things you do,
You'd have a room full of roaches

And if I sent just roaches white,
You'd think I was prej'diced, right?
There in your room full of roaches

I might take an airplane
And fly to Africa
And then send you giant roaches
And you'll be scared, ha ha..

So, if this makes you mad and blue,
And you could send some roaches, too
Well, I don't mind a room full of roaches,
Ex-ter-mi-nat-ing's what I do..

AFW - I used to think a Room Full Of "Roaches" was the aftermath of a college party. Nicely done, and I didn't know Sammy Kaye recorded this years would have diminished my enjoyment of the Fine job once again. ;D

Came here via the 'Random' feature, AFW. Great job, loved the joke in the second verse, hard to work that into a song about Roaches! Glad to see you used the Gilley version, Merry and I have a parody prepared based on the same OS (but not the same subject matter) which will be released one day.
