The Lyrics

Somewhere under the radar
Way down low
There's a bum that no one's heard of
Lost on poverty row

Somewhere under the radar
Sidewalks gray
And the bum who has no one
Stumbles through the day

At night he sleeps in constant fear
And wakes up when some louts are nearby fighting
Street trouble brews like witches pots
All night long he's hearing shots
Sounds so inviting

Somewhere under the radar
Their mums cry
Mums cry under the radar
Why them oh why oh why ?

Impoverished to say the least
They sleep out where the ticks and fleas are biting
Their hovels smell like they don't wash
Like bathing got the mayor's kibosh
Sounds so (so) in (in) viting

Somewhere under the radar
Their poor mums cry
Mums cry under the radar
Why them why oh why?
(why or why yeah yeah)

Their poor mums cry
(The poor mums cry)
Under the radar
Oh why of why

"Under the radar" has another meaning for doomsday prepperss, conspiracy theorists, and people afraid of technology used to spy on them. It means to go underground and to avoid tech. You could do another parody with that theme too! 555!

Fine, timely, and thoughtfully done piece. Good work, you old dog, 5's (PS remember back to when you complained about me overlooking you in a piece I wrote about parody writers on the site? Well you have your revenge now,since I just notice you passed me on the parody authors list.) lol.
