The Lyrics

Even go to Mississippi,
And I'll try to be less snippy,
I will try to act reserve.

Like a nun without a habit,
I just like to say dag-nab-it!
I'm just so full of vevre.

So some calm I now am tryin',
I like roarin' like a lion,
I'll try so to conserve.

So I hope you will notice,
That I'd be great for the office,
'Cause you know I've got the nerve.

Oh, I'd
Like to confide,
I like to be hardcore,
Wanna roar, this being nice is such a chore,
Just one light, YEEEEEEEEEEAH!
Just like before.

I'll be as tame as a florist,
And mellow as a chorus,
Demeanor I'll preserve.

Like Nero who was a fiddlin',
I won't forget my rit'lin,
My doctor can observe.

I wouldn't take a breather,
I'd rule the roost like Caesar,
If you'd all just let me serve.

Liked 'Heart' more, but still really good job with this. And extra points on all of your stuff today just for picking the songs you did. Oh, I heard someone's been leaving subtle hints about something on your parodies today...
