On another site, folks were talking about the most obnoxious Bluegrass song they had ever heard, and something called "Ten Pounds of Possum in the Headlights" got quite a bit of notice. Anyone know the lyrics?

Subject: Lyr Add: FIVE POUNDS OF POSSUM

Sorry Bud, we can only give you FIVE pounds.

Five Pounds of Possum

My children are hungry, my dog needs a bone.
I'm out of a job now, so I'm just drivin' home.
An hour after sundown, when what to my delight,
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.

CHORUS: There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.
If I can just run him over, every thing will be all right.
We'll have some possum gravy, oh what a beautiful sight;
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.

Won't have to clean no chicken, won't have to open no cans.
Just a little bit closer, and I'll have him in my hands.
I think the time has come now, to go from "dim" to "bright."
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.

CHORUS

You can also take a look at this thread(click) when many of us were skeptical that there was such a song. I'm personally still skeptical about Hiroshi Ogura.

However, no one ever seems to mention this tender love song:

I'm Just A Possum in the Headlights of Your Love by Craig Brandis.
