    THE STREAK
    WRITER RAY STEVENS

    SPOKEN: Hello, ev'ryone, This is your Action News reporter with all the news that is news across the nation on the scene at the supermarket. There seems to have been some disturbance here. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened? Yeah, I did. I's standin' over there by the tomaters and here he comes- runnin' through the pole beans, through the fruits ''n' vegetables, nekked as a jaybird. 'n' I hollered over t'Ethel, I said, "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL!!" 'n' it's too late- she'd already been INcensed.

    (Here he comes)
    Looka dat, looka dat
    (There he goes)
    Looka dat, looka dat
    (And he ain't wearin' no clothes)
    Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound> (Looka dat, looka dat)
    Fastest thing on two feet
    Looka dat, looka dat
    He's just as proud as he can be of his anatomy
    He gun give us a peek

    Oh, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound>
    (Looka dat, looka dat)
    He likes to show off his physique (Looka dat, looka dat)
    If there's an audience to be found
    He'll be streakin' A-round invitin' public critique <"zipppp" kazoo sound>

    SPOKEN: This is your Action News reporter once again and we're here at the gas station. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened? Yeah, I did. I's just in here gettin' my tawres checked 'n' he just appeared outta the back. Come streakin' around the grease rack there- didn't have nuthin' on but a smile!! I looked at her and Ethel was gettin' 'er a cold drink. I hollered, "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL!!" But it's too late- she'd already been MOONED!! Flashed her right there in front of the shock absorbers!!

    (He ain't crude)
    (Looka dat, looka dat)
    (He ain't rude)
    (Looka dat, looka dat)
    (He's just in the mood to run in the nude)
    Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound> (Looka dat, looka dat)
    He likes to turn other cheek (Looka dat, looka dat)
    He's always makin' the news wearin' just his tennis shoes
    Guess you could call him unique <"zipppp" kazoo sound>

    SPOKEN: Once again, your Action News reporter in the booth at the gym covering the disturbance at the basketball playoff. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened? Yeah, I did. Halftime, I's just goin' down there to get Ethel a snow cone. Here he come, right outta the cheap seats, dribblin'. Right down the middle of the floor. Didn't have on nothin' but his Keds! Made a hook shot and got out through the concession stand. I hollered up at Ethel, I said, "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL!!"..Too late. She'd already gotten a free shot. Grandstand. Right there in front of the home team.

    Whoa, yes, they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound> CLOSING: Not totally decipherable because 3 things are going on at once. Ray is singing a verse and the backup singers are doing (Looka dat, looka dat) while Ray, on an overlaid track is speaking
    "Ethel! Is that you Ethel?
    < He's just as proud as he can be >
    What do you think you're doin?
    < He gonna give us a peek>
    You get your clothes on !!"
    Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound> "Ethel, where you goin'?
    < He likes to show off his physique>
    Ethel, you shameless hussy!!"
    invitin' public critique>
    Say it isn't SO, Ethel!! FADE
    (holymosie)

    There's far too much of this going on. Someone is replacing original versions of classics with whatever the hell they want. Remakes get their own pages and clearly someone is too damn lazy to make said pages, so they ruin original pages. Wayne has all the originals and they should be put back the way they were on these pages when idiocy like this is found. The tricky bit is getting his attention to give me the proper quality mp3s to do it.
