The Lyrics

One small insect come crawlin' in
My kitchen, yesterday
Upon the fridge he rested
As he crept along his way
He waved his left antenna
And I cringed at what I saw,
Five hundred of his buddy bugs,
Besides, his maw and paw...

Some glistened brown,
Some glistened black,
Some had dull shades of tan
I'm searchin' for my weapon,
But, I couldn't find the can
I told myself, don't panic,
As they marched across the floor
Just drove down to the dollar store,
And I bought myself, some more..

Yucky, yi, ooohhh,
Widely, I sprayed..
Cockroaches On Parade

The leader paused, and shook his head
With one leg rubbed his neck
The others did the same, but then,
Continued on their trek
So, I dove the can down closer,
Strafed a stronger second wave
And victory yelled, "Geronomo!"
"Boys, ya' better dig your grave!"

Yucky, yi, ooohhh,
Fiercely, I sprayed
Cockroaches On Parade

I turned around,
They're belly up, and dyin' on their backs
But swear, I hear the leader's voice,
Defiantly he acts..
"If one of us survives this
Evil Hitler-Like blitzkrieg,
You'll answer to the BPL
Our Bug Protective League!"

Yucky, yi, ooohhh,
Once more, I sprayed
Cockroaches gone...Thanks, Raid!

Cockroaches On Parade
Cockroaches On Parade..
