The Lyrics

Leanin' back, snackin' crack-er of HiHo
Tryin' to cool boilin' drool, 'bout to cry-oh
That Yvonne, the bitch can con, she's a charmer
Son of a gun..had me try one, five alarmer..

Gum Ball Fire, a red hot wire, coulda' burnt my tongue off
Vend machine, I plucked a green, nearly stung my lung off
Jar downtown, upside down, dumb to try it..
Son of a gun, that hot's no fun, why'd I buy it?

Instrumental verse

Torch of blow, crimson glow, mouth's all furry
I'll avenge, That Yvonne, don't you worry..
Slip ex-lax in her snacks, at the show-o
Son of a gun, she'll get the runs, be a go-ho

Gum Ball Fire..a red hot wire, coulda' burnt my tongue off
Vend machine, I plucked a green, and it stung my lung off
Jar downtown, upside down, dumb to try it...
Son of a gun, too hot's no fun, why'd I buy it?

Instrumental verse

Gum Ball Fire, a red hot wire, coulda' burnt my tongue off
Vend machine, I got a green, eww! it stung my lung off
Jar downtown, upside down, dumb to try it...
Son of a gun, hot ain't no fun, why'd I buy it?
Son of a gun, hot ain't no fun, why'd I buy it?
Son of a gun, that hot's no fun, why'd I buy it?

Great job, AFW! Also, I love gumballs, and I would like to know if this Yvonne person in your parody is a real person or is based on one. If you don't want to tell me in a comment, feel free to send an e-mail. 5s.

Thanks, Andria..Yvonne is the name used by Hank in the original song.."My Yvonne, sweetest one, me-oh-my-oh"...

I didn't think of the fact that Yvonne is a name heard frequently in that OS, having heard only Muzak versions of it, but it is a nice, rather Southern-sounding name, and nothing else would really work in terms of pacing and sounding right when sung. Thanks for clarifying, AFW.
