REGIMENTAL

Should I choose to go bare,
eschewing underwear
beneath my kilt of plaid,
would that be so bad?

Surely there's no harm
and no cause for alarm,
if I promise not to flash
nor do aught else that's rash

and try to be
a gentleman
but I must go
regimental, man!

Briefs just don't feel right --
they bind, they're far too tight,
and those baggy boxers
went out with bobby-soxers!

I need to feel the breeze
waft above my knees,
and so I'll go without
but don't you ever doubt

I'll try to be
a gentleman
but I must go
regimental, man!

For to ones precious manhood
tight pants are detrimental;
that is why a man should
always go regimental

and try to be
a gentleman.
I must go
regimental, man!

Another dopey song. Verse-verse-chorus-verse-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus, probably an instro break after second chorus. Assuming, of course, that one would actually perform such a bit of silliness.
