Guess What?

 Okay. So, back in 2003, I had this friend who was “the biggest concert promoter in Modesto”.

 He told me he was trying to put together a novelty act, a senior citizen punk group. We riffed for awhile, goofing about how an ambulance would be parked in front of the club when they played. He seemed sincere in saying, “A band member should die at every show”. He had some song titles, like Hey Nurse, Angry Golf Assault and Hey You Kids Get Off My Lawn among others, wondered if I might like to take a crack at writing some.

 I wrote him a couple of tunes, but nothing came of it. He didn’t love the tunes, but I sure did 🙂

 I present to you, bobwhite and the Geriatrics, featuring Grumpy Old Punk on vocals.

Guess What?

You kids are something else
Treat your old man this way
You call me three times a year
Birthday, Christmas, Father’s Day
But you don’t think I see right through that crap
When all you want from me is my dirt nap

Well guess what?
You’re out of the will
You’re out of the will

You kids are counting every minute til I’m dead
You little punks, you don’t think I mean what I said
But I’m not gonna leave you one red cent
And if you don’t like it then go get bent

‘Coz your mother and me raised you but you turned out to be imbeciles who couldn’t even wipe your own butts with a picture manual and if you ever get a clue I’ll lose whatever sanity you’ve left meeeeeeeeeeee!

Guess what?
Guess what?
Guess what?
You’re out of the will
You’re out of the will
You’re out of the will

I’m gonna take it with me. AAAAhahahahahahahah
Nothing for you, you little sons of muthagrrrrrrrrrrrr
