===============================


        This year's man is gonna be a man's man
        this little man is gonna be a man's man
        7-Eleven sells devil dogs and SPAM
        this year's man is gonna be a man's man

        This year's baby not gonna wet his booty
        this year's screamer gonna sniff too tooty
        Plurality of duty, singularity of beauty
        this little baby gets queer for big hot booty

        People come and go
        look at how they act
        they put down a scam
        I catch 'em in the act

        This little dog is gonna be a rottweiller
        this little bitch is gonna chew on an enchilada
        He's a husky at heart, she'd eat her own daughter
        this year's man is gonna take a poodle to the slaughter

        People come and go
        look at how they act
        they put down a scam
        and I catch 'em in the act
