Mockingbird Parody

In the late sixties, A group of comedians in Canada called "The Brothers-In-Law" came out with an album that had a song like this one, but it's lyrics were using foreign sports cars for the words. I just wrote my own lyrics with the cars being updated for the people who are more familiar with cars being driven in North America. I claim rights to the lyrics only. The punchline was included in the original BIL album!
Hush little baby, don't say a word
Daddys gonna buy you a Thunderbird
And if that Thunderbird don't go
Daddys gonna buy you a Camaro

Now, if you're not a Camaro fan
Daddys gonna buy you a Chevy Van
And if something in the van goes clang, clang, clang
Well, daddys gonna buy you a new Mustang

And if that Mustang don't bring new friends
Daddys gonna buy you a Mercedes Benz
And if you're still not as happy as can be
Well, daddys gonna buy you a new Ferrari

And if that Ferrari doesn't come in black
Daddys gonna buy you a Cadillac
And if you're still not as happy as you can get
Daddys gonna buy you a new Corvette

And if a Corvette still isn't your choice
Daddys gonna buy you a new Rolls Royce
And if that Rolls still makes you balk
Well I give up baby. Ya can damn well walk!

Tribute To Tommy Chong 1

Sung to the tune of Steve Miller’s “The Joker”

Some people call him the king of toke
Some call him Tommy Chong
Some people call him a stoner
But not anymore, since the feds came along

He saw that the law was as crooked as can be
They said,"You're gonna plead guilty, or we'll charge your family"
So he does it, yeah, he does it and he goes and he does his time.
Come on, baby, I'll sure tell you what should be the crime

He ain't smokin'
He ain't tokin'
He don't feel like jokin'
Uncle Sam took away his bong

The feds dropped by
Not to get high
Just to blackmail the guy
They can't find Osama, so they'll settle for Chong

The narc's think that they just ruined his life
Lied straight to his face, and just twisted the knife
Now he's gotta say, gotta say that he ain't gettin' high
Come on, baby, let's hope that the feds are making him lie
