The Lyrics

Smell people hate gnomes...
I'm just a guy named Norm
Working gardens year 'round
And also lawns with lawnmower
Landscaping the grounds
I F-ck squirrels and gophers up
Kill pests around the home
Then one day without warning
The folks brought a gnome home, and I was

Bad to the gnome
Bad to the gnome
Bad to the gnome

It broke my heart
This Deutschland fool
Standing near the door, lookin' crazy
Definitely uncool
Left eye was a bit lazy
Red hat like a cone
Awful blue clothing
Had a fake pipe to smoke
Bad to the gnome
Bad to the gnome
Couldn't leave it alone

Covered it with leaves
Pretended it wasn't real
Moved it behind a bush
Knocked it over, in garage wheeled
The gnome drove me crazy
Wish they'd shipped it back home
And get back their money
Before it's soon gone
Bad to the gnome

Everyone stared from the street
Wanted to move it inside
Break it with a hammer
Wanted that evil thing to die
The dog peed on it daily
Got a call on the phone
Folks going on vacation
I'm gonna destroy that gnome
Bad to the gnome
Bad to the gnome

Went missing, you know... Ha, ha, ha!
I bashed in it's skull!!!

I actually enjoyed this very much, Rob. You should go for this kind of silliness more often.

Thanks AG, but I'm not a very silly person ;-)

Thanks to Agri for pointing this out - I usually ignore yours in part because I don't think we share the same sense of humor much. But this one was actually pretty funny. And I think it's even funnier that I'm saying that about a parody that ends with "I bashed in its skull!!!" as its hilarious final punchline. Seriously, well done; give yourself some 5s haha
