The Lyrics

YouTube Most people don't know this, but Sting actually wrote the classic Police song "Roxanne" about me. I wasn't a prostitute, but I wore a chicken suit and hopped around in the street in front of a fried chicken place. I was desperately unhappy, so Sting told me he could get me a job shoveling cow and horse manure on his uncle's farm. He then got the inspiration to write a song about it, but the original lyrics went something like "You don't have to wear that suit tonight" and "hop the streets for money, they don't care if it's dark or if it's white." And instead of a plaintive cry of "Roxanne!" the chorus was Sting making a chicken sound ("BWAAAAK!") followed by the name "Stan" (not my real name). So it went something like: "BWAAAAK! Stan!" I was hurt when he changed the lyrics, but Sting made up for it by persuading his uncle to buy me a brand new shovel and also to give me most of Christmas Day off.
Bwaaak, Stan
You don't have to pull on the red tights
Feathers all over
You don't have to tell 'em you're a chick de-light

Bwaaak, Stan
You don't have wear that suit tonight
Hop the streets for money
They don't care if you're dark or if you're white

Bwaaak!!! Stan
You don't have to hand out the free bites
Bwaaak!!! Stan
You don't have to taste like a de-light

Bwaaak, Stan (pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (taste like a de-light)
Bwaaak, Stan (pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (hand out the free bites)
Bwaaak, Stan (pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak!!!

Although you're not a wizard
You're more than just a gizzard
My uncle's farm has a job that's real
You could shovel horse and cow manure

You want to be a winner
And not a chicken dinner
Batter up, for a new recipe
Peck your own way

Bwaaak!!! Stan
You don't have to pull on the red tights
Bwaaak!!! Stan
You don't have to taste like a dee-light

Bwaaak, Stan (you don't have to pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (taste like a de-light)
Bwaaak, Stan (pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (hand out the free bites)
Bwaaak, Stan (pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (taste like a de-light)
Bwaaak, Stan (pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (hand out the free bites)
Bwaaak, Stan (you don't have to pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (taste like a de-light)
Bwaaak, Stan (you don't have to pull on the red tights)
Bwaaak, Stan (hand out the free bites)

The totally disjointed, absurdist, non sequitur enlarded, 200 word pre-explanation of the comic premise gambit. The oldest, hoariest trick in the Amiright playbook. Who but Porfle could pull it off with such grace and aplomb? Who but he?
