(Tommy? Tommy? Tommy?)
"Everybody welcome."
One two stupid
Three four dumb
Five six idiotic
Seven eight seat bee sate
Very stupid very stupid very stupid very stupid!
I like Concord
And 180-G
I like Pleasant Hill
No other possibility
Very stupid very stupid very stupid very stupid
Very stupid very stupid very stupid very stupid
I like Orinda
And 409
I like Martinez
And all the green slime
I like Lafayette
When the weather is fine
And I like Contra-Costa County
Almost all of the time
One two stupid, three four dumb, five six idiotic, seven eight seat bee sate
(This is it. I'm gonna do it right now. Here we go....)
very stupid very stupid very stupid very stupid
Very stupid very stupid very stupid very stupid.....
(All right,
people. first of all I want you to raise your hand
with your automatic garage door opener.
Second I want you to stand on your left leg if your undulating
sprinkler system doesn't work.
Third I want you to grab your right foot with your left hand if
your lawn needs mowing.
Fourth I want you to shake your head if you like your neighbor.
Fifth I want you to put parakeet feathers into your television set
if you're watching MTV.
Sixth I want you to pour 409 into your Mr. Coffee coffee maker if
you forgot to clean the orange carpet.
Seventh I want you to trip over your gross cart if you're
shoplifting from Safe Muffins.
Eighth before you start jamming I want you to go back into your
house and get all of your furniture ....

"I guess I'm gonna have to start jamming mobile, is that what
you're tryin' to tell me?"
"You think I should start jamming you guys"
All right, people, it's almost time for us to be 10-8.
In just a few moments, we're gonna be 10-8, and I'm
going to tell you
