The Lyrics

Third installment of 32 parodies from The Residents' Commercial Album.
NBC (Parody of "Suburban Bathers"--track 12)
The urban friends, they owned TV
And now we have Reality
You better get yourself all set
The entertainment's the best yet
Must see---TV
It's coming soon to Thursday night
Some funny words, a real catfight
And someone learns to love himself
When he learns of his Dad's poor health
Must see--TV
And you will just kick yourself
If you miss "The App--rentice"!

L'EGGS (Parody of "Dimples and Toes"--track 13)
When I'm unhappy and the world is unkind
I walk down the streets, it is so sublime
Looking at ladies in L'Eggs Pantyhose
Looks so attractive, the styles still remain
They hold fast against the wear and the strain
It's sold in an eggshell, just like long ago
Looking at ladies in L'Eggs Pantyhose.

Wal-Mart (Parody of "The Nameless Souls"--track 14)
So how are you all doing?
I wear my vest blue
Hope your day's pleasant
There something I can do?
I walk up to strangers
Even in bad moods
This job is so easy
What can I do for you?
Bill is here, I'm famous
I will be your guide
Wal-Mart's new Greeter
Senior full of pride
Wal-Mart's new Greeter
Is polite and not snide
Wal-Mart has Greeters
And they wish you luck

JAY'S (Parody of "Love Leaks Out"--track 15)
One by one
All the day
I just can't
Stop eating Jay's

PEPSI LIGHT (Parody of "Act of Being Polite"--track 16)
Woke up early in the morning
Wife was in despair
She was packing her clothes up
And growling like a bear
I hate that I upset her
But I think I had a right
I was just so thirsty
When I drank her Pepsi Light
Yes, I am really sorry
That I drank her Pepsi Light

TACO BELL (Parody of "Tragic Bells"--track 18)
Taco Bell is calling for me
Taco Bell is urging me to come again
They got Supreme Nachos on

OMFG!.. I sit here at work drinking a Diet Pepsi (nectar of the Gods) .. low and behold a volcano of snot and fizzies erupt from my sinuses and onto my keyboard as I read your "Act of Being Polite" parody.. You are "the Man", oh nameless one!

Sinister, I'm so glad that I could brighten your day, but my apologies for your keyboard. :) Hope you enjoyed the rest of the "commercials."
