The Lyrics

I'm at
Ninja Turtles
I had hired them to mow my lawn

And each week they're saying
Mowabunga at dawn

Snail pacing it will take them all day
Then for break, pizza fills up their trays

Ninja Turtles
Out there karate chopping my yard

Chops the branches down, tree's bare

Sewage bills
Splinter won't pay their share

So they grabbed their masks, and got a job
April's gone, said they were all slobs woah

Donnie Boy
You know that bow does not belong


Yeah Raphael
Uses his sais to cut rose thorns

Mikey's always playing
While the other three scorn

Turtles work for near minimum wage
They're on time, and they don't seem to age

Ninja Turtles
You did a great job on my lawn

One problem... I thought that they said "Cowabunga" not "Mowabunga"... Never heard of "Mowabunga" before.

I can see a great lawn service coming in the future though. . ."Mowabunga" !

I love the creation of new words Cowabunga is predictable. . .Mowabunga is far more fun

dktos, but I support ninjas mowing. I like how the turtles have had merchandise out on store shelves for more than half of my lifespan.

(artistry) Totally clever idea and made good use of the song's brevity.

(Artistry) One shell of a parody! Mutant turtles vs. crabgrass - what a concept.

I liked the idea. "Mowabunga" is a good word.
I know it's a really short OS, but I was hoping to see Michelangelo and Donatello worked in somewhere. After all...they too are "Ninja turtles".
Wait...after a that the "Donnie Boy" and "Mikey" ref...never mind. Good job!
