Dis stay mo bettah kine!

OK, I completely redid the "Devil with a Blue Dress On" parody -- adding the "Good Golly, Miss Molly" bridge and a third verse. Now, Lilo is introduced, her taming of Stitch is mentioned, then the final verse covers his fight against those who would take him from his new `ohana (so the song now goes from him being a menace in the first verse to being our friend at the end, just like the movie!). The tune is now in A major, with the bridge in C (before, I had transposed the main tune into C). I also listened to a recording of the real song (well, apart from the bridge) to get an idea of the true melody, then wrote out the whole melody and rhythm so I wouldn't screw it up too badly. I changed a few words in the first two verses also. I sang louder, farther from the mic, and that reduced the spikes, so more of the words are understandable too.

As before, that's me on the `ukulele!
