The Lyrics

As a child, I thought this was one of the most beautiful songs I had ever heard. It instilled wonder and hope in me.Now I've gone and done this to it.....
Bum, bare under the raincoat
Think he's high
Stands there, near to the lamp post
Flashes the passers-by

Bum, bare under the raincoat
London Fog?
Grinning wide in the vain hope
You'll be shocked by his log

Today on Sunset Boulevard
He failed to see the unmarked car
Behind him

He opened wide and let it flop
Now, downtown, with the L.A. cops
Is where you'll find him

Bum, bare under the raincoat
Home, he's sent
Cops said they couldn't hold him
Not enough evidence

Our un-hung zero,
"See, no Speedos!"
Home free, he goes.

"My, oh, my!"
rant

Editor's Note: If you stare at the very last sentence long enough, it begins to take the form of a pair of briefs.

The title made me laugh. The song is great, and the brief visual at the end is nice too!

Thank you Jeff, AFW, Kristoff, Leo, JD, John, Stuart, RA, Dee and Billy. Johnny D: Loved your comment! Stu: I think you'll find the Virgin Mary in the second verse. The last sentence is definitely Speedos.

Hey, I've been Paul Robinsoned by Dee Range! I'm honored by the comparison, because this is hilarious. Picturing little Judy Garland singing it makes it even better. Oh, and great Speedo visual at the end there, Rick.
