The Lyrics

I'm Gonna Sit Right Down
And Knit Myself A Sweater,
The color will be black and blue
It's gonna compliment my shoes,
It's gonna look just like a bruise,
Some fancy stitches, gonna pearl 'em
Show those bitches, I can curl 'em

Watch all the passersby
Flash eye and portray jealous,
Strollin' Broadway in a mile of style..
And feelin' cocky like I OD'd on Cialus
...Maybe next I''ll knit a nice...argyle

Who said us guys can't knit?
Hey, we can do it better,
In closets home, I've sewn..a pile..
From extra large size to petite,
My friends all think they're really neat
Knit one for my pet, now "Shep's" Wooly
Old Teddy..would say, Bully!

I won't just sit and tweet
My time away with Twitter..
I'll fetch my sewing basket out..then I'll
Just go and sit right down
and knit myself a sweater,
This time I might knit a nice...argyle..

Yeah, this time I might knit a nice argyle.

(Shooby dooby dooby doo)

Hey - I learned how to knit while I was cryogenically frozen. That never stopped me from getting Simon Phoenix in the end.

Great "knit wit" in this parody. A truly inspired line:

And feelin' cocky like I OD'd on Cialus

Nothing wrong with men knitting if Stallone could do it in "Demolition Man". Great work here Airfarcewon!

Well done, and Rosie Greer sends his regards. And in case you didn't know:
According to legend, the word 'knit' originally meant "pop you so hard you'll see stars," which was a sign of love and admiration in the small town of Concussion, Italy. After prolonged 'knitting', the population realized there was probably a better way. At that point, Bernardo Crochet, a local haberdasher, convinced the townspeople that making sweaters was a better and safer way to show love and admiration. Not surprisingly, the constant noggin' knockin' had adverse effects on those who decided to start 'knitting' in the new fangled way. The sweaters looked more like blankets with arm holes. And the Snuggie was born.
