I Love Rocky Road ----------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic parody of "I Love Rock & Roll" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts I hear those ice cream bells and I start to drool, Keep a couple quarts in my locker at school Yeah, but chocolate's gettin old, and vanilla just leaves me cold, There's just one flavor good enough for me, yeah me, Don't gimme no crummy taste spoon, I know what I need, baby I love Rocky Road, so won't you go and buy a half gallon baby I love rocky Road, so have another triple scoop with me, OW! They tell me Ice Cream Junkies are all the same, All the soda jerkers know my name, When their supply is gone, Then I'll be movin' on But I'll be back on Monday afternoon, You'll see, another truckload's comin' in for me, All for me, I'm singin I love Rocky Road, so won't you go and buy a half gallon baby I love rocky Road, so have another triple scoop with me, OW! When I'm all alone, I just grab my self a cone, And if i get fat and lose my teeth that's fine with me, Just lock me in the freezer, throw away the key, I'm singin;, I love Rocky Road, So won't you go and buy a half gallon baby I love rocky Road, So have another triple scoop with me, OW!
Buckingham Blues ---------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic Gonna tell you a story About Chuck and Diane. Couple British kids from The palace at Buckingham. Chuckie wants to grow up And be a polo star, And ride his little horsies All around the backyard. (oh yeah) You know they really paid their dues. I said hey, lawdy mama. They got them Buckingham blues. Now Chuckie goes hunting, And leaves Diane alone. So she fixes her hair, And she talks on the Princess Phone. Chuckie's still tryin' to figure out What his job's supposed to be, And Diane's the fashion leader Of the aristocracy. I said hey, Lady Di, Tell me where'd you get them shoes? Ah, Well hey nonny nonny, Looks like you got them Buckingham blues. Aw, bein' heir to the throne, well It must be awful hard. Gotta pose for pictures Out on the front yard. And Lady Di, well, She must have it pretty rough. Gotta hang around the house all day, Makin' babies and stuff. Another game of croquet, Then they're off on a Caribbean cruise. Well hey bop-a-re-bop, They really got them Buckingham blues. (Ah, tell it to me, now tell it to--wow! Ah got my mojo workin'!) They don't serve no Twinkees With their afternoon tea. Never had a dinner Made by Chef Boy-ar-Dee. Bein' in the spotlight Is a hard life to choose. Diane drops half a pound, It's on the six o'clock news. Ah yeah, Those kids have really paid their dues. Aw, what a royal pain it is, When you got them Buckingham blues.
Happy Birthday -------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Well it's time to celebrate your birthday, It happens every year. We'll eat a lot of broccoli, and drink a lot of beer. You should be good and happy that there's somethin' you can eat. A million people every day are starvin' in the street. Your daddy's in the gutter with the wretched and the poor. Your mama's in the kitchen with a can of Cycle Four. There's garbage in the water, There's poison in the sky. I guess it won't be long before we're all gonna die! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Well, what's the matter, little friend, you think this party is the pits? Enjoy it while you can. We'll soon be blown to bits! The monkeys in the Pentagon are gonna cook our goose. Their finger's on the button, all they need is an excuse. It doesn't take a military genius to see We'll all be Crispy Critters after World War III. There's nowhere you can run to, Nowhere you can hide. When they drop the big one, We all get fried. Come on, boys and girls, sing along, okay? Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Well, there's a punk in the alley, and he's lookin' for a fight. There's an Arab on the corner buyin' everything in sight. There's a mother in the ghetto with another mouth to feed. Seems that everywhere you look today, there's misery and greed. I guess you know the Earth is gonna crash into the sun, But that's no reason why we shouldn't have a little fun. So if you think it's scary, if it's more than you can take, Just blow out the candles, And have a piece of cake. Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! (wow!) Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday to you! And a pinch to grow an inch!
Stop Draggin' My Car Around --------------------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic Had to park my car for just five minutes. I had to go inside to use the phone. When I came back again, my car was gone. Well, I didn't know it was a loading zone. What a bummer, I was so brought down. I had to chase that tow truck all over town, yellin' Stop draggin' my... Stop draggin' my... Stop draggin' my car around. Took my baby to the local disco. I was jumpin' like a maniac. But the owner came and pulled me off the floor. Then he took me to his little office in the back. He said, "I really like your snaggletooth necklace. Your pants are groovy, and your hair's okay. But, man, that car of yours is so uncool. Like wow, I'm sorry, but we towed it away!" Stop draggin' my... Stop draggin' my... Stop draggin' my car around! Now I'm at home. I'm watchin' "Gilligan's Island." Guess it's time to trade my old car in. For twenty dollars and my '64 Plymouth, Maybe I could get a second-hand Schwinn. Look out the window, there's a Tow truck in the driveway. I grabbed the driver and I asked him why. He said, "I'm sorry, kid, you're late with the payments. It's time to kiss your little car goodbye." Stop draggin' my... Stop draggin' my... Stop draggin' my car around! Stop draggin' my car around! Listen, the check's in the mail. No, really! Stop draggin' my car around! Oh man, I just had the hub caps repainted! Stop draggin' my car around! Hey! Hey, I left a sandwich in the back seat!

But I'll soon be back For my my my yi yi wooo! M-M-M-My bologna. Spreadin' on the mustard now, A-show me how. Spread it on a little of this bologna. Hopin' that we don't run out, Don't run out. If we do, I'm sure that I'll miss bologna. (chorus) Goin' to the market now, Market now. I'm the city's biggest bologna buyer. Walkin' down the shopping aisles, Shopping aisles. Fillin' up my basket with Oscar Mayer. (chorus)

Another One Rides The Bus ------------------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic parody of "Another One Bites The Dust" by Queen Ridin' in a bus down the boulevard, And the place was pretty packed. Couldn't find a seat, so I had to stand, With the perverts in the back. It was smellin' like a locker room. There was junk all over the floor. We're already packed in like sardines, But we're stoppin' to pick up more. Look out! chorus: Another one rides the bus-ah. Another one rides the bus-ah. And another comes on, And another comes on. Another one rides the bus-ah. Hey! He's gonna sit by you. Another one rides the bus. There's a suitcase pokin' me in the ribs. There's an elbow in my ear. There's a smelly old bum standin' next to me. Hasn't showered in a year. Well, I think I'm missin' a contact lens. I think my wallet's gone. And I think this bus is stoppin' again, To let a couple more freaks get on. Look out! (chorus) Another one rides the bus. Another one rides the bus--ow! Another one rides the bus--hey, hey! Another one rides the bus--hey-y-y-y! The window doesn't open, and the fan is broke, And my face is turnin' blue. I haven't been in a crowd like this Since I went to see The Who. Well, I should'a got off a couple miles ago, But I couldn't get to the door. There isn't any room for me to breathe. Now we're gonna pick up more, yeah! (chorus)
I'll Be Mellow When I'm Dead ---------------------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic I don't care about your karma. I don't care about what's hip. No space cadet's gonna tell me what to do. I won't swim in your Jacuzzi. You can't make me settle down. I'd rather kick and jump and bite and scratch, And scream until I'm blue. I may as well be hyper, As long as I'm still around. 'Cause I'll have lots of time to be laid back, When I'm six feet under ground. chorus: I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. When are you Cosmic cowboys Gonna get it through your head. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I can't stand the smell of incense. I don't really like to jog. No Joni Mitchell eight-tracks in my car. (ooh) I hate anything organic. Even health food makes me sick. You won't catch me sipping Perrier Down in some sushi bar. I tell you, now's the time to go for All the gusto you can grab. You'll have plenty of time to be low-key When you're laid out on the slab. (chorus) I don't want no part of that vegetarian scene. I won't buy me a pair of designer jeans. No redwood hot tub to my name. I got all that I want, And if it's all the same to you, I don't need a course in self-awareness To find out who I am. And I'd rather have a Big Mac or a Jumbo Jack Than all the bean sprouts in Japan! So don't ask me what I'm into. I don't need to prove I'm cool. I'll break your arm, If you ask me what's my sign. I won't tell you where my head's at. I don't need to see no shrink. Psychosis may be in this year, But I'm really not that kind, And I'm in no hurry to be casual. In fact I think I'll wait Until I'm pushing up the daisies. (Like, wow, man, can you relate?) I'll be mellow when I'm dead, I'll be mellow when I'm dead, I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead, I'll be mellow when I'm dead, I'll be mellow when I'm dead. I'll be mellow when I'm dead, I'll be mellow when I'm dead, I'll be mellow when I'm dead.
Such A Groovy Guy ----------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic I got my alligator boots. I wear my pants skin tight. I wear my dark sunglasses in the middle of the night. And when I look in the mirror, oh it's such an awesome sight. It makes me want to kneel down and pray. I'm so adorable and charming. I'm sure that you can see. And everybody's always tryin' to hang around with me. They tell me I'm the greatest, and it's hard to disagree. 'Cause I'm so perfect in every way. And I'm so cute, I can hardly stand it. And I'm so handsome, honey, I could just die. I know you'll never be as wonderful as me, But at least you can try. 'Cause chorus: I'm such a groovy guy. (such a groovy guy) Yeah, I'm such a groovy guy. (such a groovy guy) I'm such a groovy guy. (such a groovy guy) Yeah, I'm such a groovy guy. Baby, are you in the mood for a little romance? Well, for starters I could pour some chocolate pudding down your pants. And then attach electrodes to your brain, and watch you dance. Well, golly, wouldn't that be fun? Oh, and then I might decide to tie you up with dental floss. I'll make you wear a harness, and I'll show ya who's the boss. Of course, if you refuse, well honey, it's your loss. I mean, I don't do this with just anyone. So baby, how can you say its all over? So how can ya tell me goodbye? So now you tell me that you're leavin' me for good, And all I wanna know is why? I mean, after all, (chorus) I mean you could do worse. (chorus)
Mr. Frump In The Iron Lung -------------------------- by "Weird Al" Yankovic I visit Mr. Frump in the hospital. I see him 'most every day. And when I see Mr. Frump in his iron lung, This is what I hear him say: (iron lung sounds) Ya know, Mr. Frump is my very best friend. He's never a chump or a tease. He never tells me lies, and best of all, He never disagrees. I bring him candy and flowers every afternoon. Sit down by his side and say "Hi". And then I ask him his opinion of the world situation, And I wait for Mr. Frump's reply. And Mr. Frump would say: (iron lung sounds) Well, unfortunately, soon it came to be Mr. Frump's dying day. So now I bring to you the very last thing That Mr. Frump had to say: (rapid iron lung sounds) A-men!
