The Lyrics

Standin' on the corner
Doin' my own background checks
Bein' kinda' picky
Where I let my gaze roam next
Girls get my vote and need no legislation
Not a lewd act - not even sex
Just standin' on the corner
Makin' my own background checks

Saturdays are best, I'd say
Added benefit - windy day
Can't be nonchanlant - might miss a swish
It's a great boost to my heartbeat,
Each time I get a peek at
What's 'neath some covered dish...(Ohhh)

Standin' on the corner
Makin' thorough background checks
Feelin' like Jack Horner,
Sweetie pies get thumbs up flex
I proclaim most of this female population
Can own a gun - if she selects
I'm standin' on the corner
Makin' lots of back-
Check their gun rack
Makin' my own back
Ground checks

Congress - House, won't need to pass
An Obama bill - to please the mass
I have all the bases covered there..
When I'm hangin' down on mainstreet
That Jilly, June, and Jane street
Just here to help my country,
And sacrifice a stare..

Standin' on the corner
Doin' my own background checks
Workin' busy corners
Till my two eyeballs are wrecks
Studyin' all of the great
Bootie gyrations
Some a' them sure - steam up the specs
While standin' on the corner
Doin' my own back-
You should try it, Jack
Makin' my own back
Ground checks..

First dogs and now this. Where will you get your jollies next? The real thin's not beating down my door either, so I can relate. 555s to even out the silent 111 strike.
