The Lyrics

Salutations, fellow parodisiacs. I've been off the Amiright parody grid for a few weeks while vacationing in Hawai'i, where my niece got married .... One thing about Oahu is that it's crawling with chickens. One was a rooster who apparently was still stuck on Pacific Standard Time because he would start crowing at 3:30 AM and wake me up. So after three straight mornings of this, I decided to take revenge the only way a song parodist knows, with this ..
"Err, 'err, 'err, 'errr .. 'ERR, 'ERR ... 'er, 'ERR, 'err, 'err, 'errrrr

(Wait 15 minutes)

"Err, 'err, 'err, 'errr .. 'ERR, 'ERR ... 'er, 'ERR, 'err, 'err, 'errrrr

Ain't found a way to squelch him yet
Head throbs from wedding fete
Seems all attempts to sleep go nowhere
Wife and kids, household pest
Oahu digs can't give me rest
The pullet squawks at me from somewhere

Yeah, I woke to hear the rooster, oh yeah
Yeah, there crows the rooster, yeah
You know things have gone awry
Oh, oh, oh, you know thing have gone awry

('ERR! 'ERR! 'ERR! 'ERRR! ....'ERR! 'ERR! .. ERR! 'ERR! 'ERR! ERR! 'ERR!...)

Yeah, I've got to snuff the rooster, oh yeah
Yeah, take out the rooster, yeah
You know he ain't gonna crow
No, no, no, you know he ain't gonna crow

Stumble, fall, imsomiac man
They gawk at me in Hawai'i land
Corie-ah lent me ear plugs for the noise*
Got my tool, commit chicken death
My body's tweaked like I'm high on meth
Oh cock, don't you see it's me or you

There, I've gone to snuff the rooster, oh yeah
Yeah, come here you rooster, yeah
You know you ain't gonna crow
No. no, no, you know you ain't gonna crow
*One of my children whose name is Corie, did, in fact lend me some ear plugs ... which allowed me to sleep through the first two crowings

Hey CML, this is weird... the silence here. You used to write so many poli-parodies that I think some people are in shock. I am surprised with all that's going on that you aren't writing about Obama's failed ME foreign policy, Iraq and ISIS, the Gitmo transfer, and Israel bombing Syria again. Also, Russia vs Ukraine...??? But 555 anyway :)

Rob, check my comment in the intro. I was off the grid for about three weeks while preparing and going on vacation. And during that time the only thing that "spurred" my muse (lol) was this damn rooster. ... There's no accounting for when I get inspiration. Sometimes the muse is dormant for long periods of time; Next thing you know, ideas spring up two three times a week

CML, with ISIS all over the place, corrupt Egyptian judges, stoning in the ME, etc... man, I've been looking for your parodies! GL
