Rodney’s Bottom of The Barrel

–Sung To “Swing Low Sweet Chariot”

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

I looked over Pontchartrain and what did I see
(No buses for to carry them home)*
A band of new homeless people gunnin’ after me.
(bulldozers gonna bury their old homes)*

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

If FEMA don’t get blamed ahead of me,
(for not Makin’ Nawlins a safe home)*
I’ll need protection from N.O.P.D
(to Make Nawlins my safe home.)*

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

I’m sometimes up, but I keep gettin’ put down,
(for not Makin’ Nawlins a good home):
Most people think I’m some bad-ass’d Clown
(The circus could be my new home!)*

Swing Home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.
Swing on home, Sweet Choc-o-late
Make Nawlins your home.

(*sung by the chorus, probably charles austin’s, Katrina and the Waves)

Comments

  1. Parade”, Grand Marshall Nagin greets the spectators. don BONUS! Another round of applause for “Weird Rodney” Dill, who strikes parody gold again with another witty ditty. Apparently, he already used it as an extra in one of his own contests atOTB and submitted it to a Wizbang contest, but it deserves to be seen by as many folks as possible, so I am pasting it on the front page of The Right Place for everyone to see… Nagin’s Song –Sung To “Swing Low Sweet Chariot”
