Facts:
  • This is another "style" parody by Weird Al, in which he sends up a genre of music, rather than a specific song. Here, he skewers Reggae music cliches. (sav-man)
  • Also the B-side of "This Is The Life" (CapSuper)
  • From Al's second album "In 3-D" (CapSuper)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Gonna buy me a condo
    Gonna buy me a Cuisinart
    Get a wall-to-wall carpeting
    Get a wallet full 'o credit cards
    I gonna buy me a condo, never have to mow de lawn
    I gonna get me da T-shirt wit' de alligator on

    Wo, used to live in Jamaica But I don't live dere no more
    Had to change me lifestyle
    Do t'ings I never done before
    So now I'm just a lonely Rastaman
    Living in dis American town
    Gonna sell me Bob Marley records
    Gonna get me some Jackson Browne

    I gonna buy me a condo
    Gonna buy me a Cuisinart
    Get a wall-to-wall carpeting
    and get a wallet full 'o credit cards, eh
    I gonna buy me a condo, never have to mow de lawn
    I gonna get me da T-shirt wit' de alligator on

    Wo, gonna cut off me dreadlocks
    T'row away all me ganja
    I'll have a Tupperware party
    Maybe join me a health spa
    I'll get a bowl of plastic fruits
    And a microwave oven, too
    Then I'll have the neighbors over for a weenie barbecue

    Gonna buy me a condo
    Gonna buy me a Cuisinart
    Get a wall-to-wall carpeting
    Get a wallet full 'o credit cards, oh
    I gonna buy me a condo, never have to mow de lawn
    I get a funny little T-shirt wit' de alligator on

    Ain't gonna work in de field no more
    Gonna be Amway distributor
    Ain't gonna work in de field no more (no, no)
    Gonna be Amway distributor

    (Ja) Ja, ja, ja, life is so very hard
    I need a (ja) ja, ja, ja jacuzzi in me back yard

    Oh, I gonna buy me a condo
    Gonna buy me a Cuisinart

    Get a wallet full 'o credit cards, eh
    I gonna buy me a condo, never have to mow de lawn
    I gonna get me da T-shirt wit' de alligator on
