The Lyrics

Asked me, "Are you nuts?
"Gun so close to putz?"
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

I, of course, replied,
"Sweatpants tightly tied
"Gun cannot low-ride"

Said, "Some day you'll find
"Cap in your behind
"Ow, ow-ow-ow-ow"

"When that gun does fire
"Almost hits your lance
"Smoke gets in your pants"

So I flipped --
them off, and gaily sipped
To think they could doubt my game
But today
Career has gone away
I am without my game
(Without my game)

Cell-mates all deride
Wounds I cannot hide
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh,

So I smile and say,
"When that pistol slips by
"Lead gets in your thigh"

Plaxico, Plaxico, were you really that dumb? Do the Giants falter because he forgot to wear regular pants with his gun? A 555 for this one, Tommy.

alvin: do ya think PB will actually learn anything from ths? :) thanks alvin.

TJC: That last sentence is a parody idea waiting to happen... a generic AIR parody of a writer "scoring" well... go for it! ... thanks TJ! (or "Joke gets him your fives".)

UnKnownVotrix: Actually, it worked out rather well for the Cowboys, as the Giants might have beaten them had their star receiver not taken himself out... but thanks for vote and comment!

AFW, thanks much.

Timmy1000: The word is that for Xmas, Plaxico is asking Santa for a holster.... duh! Thanks for v/c, Tk.
