about

The title, and the song's tale, come from one of those "inspected by" slips of paper that come in a new pair of pants. They also come in packages of new underwear.

lyrics

Inspected by Curly
Inspected by Curly
He works on the line, he’s fillin’ in time

Inspected by Curly
Inspected by Curly
He works all day long, he’s singin’ this song

And he’s the best you’ll see
Approvin’ the objects by man and machine
Keepin’ his standards high
Rejectin’ defectives, he’s my kinda guy


Inspected by Curly
Inspected by Curly
He packs it with pride, his labor’s inside

Snappin’ elastic bands
It can be fun, but sometimes it’s a drag
Testin’ the tension out, believin’, not leavin’
It’s his kinda bag

Chorus 2x:
Inspected by Curly
ba, ba, ba, ba
Inspected by Curly
ba, ba, ba, ba
