The Lyrics

To those of you out there who don't know Tim Minchin - get out and listen. Unless you're into homeopathy, "alternative" medicine, religion or are just plain easily offended, that is. The original is here, and if you don't know it - watch it NOW (and while you're at it, have a look at the rest)
Although I put you on a pedestal
You never let me into bed at all
So then I whacked you on the head, and all
You're dead and all, you bled and all, too

Your body's large and unconcealable
Your blood is flowing, uncongealable
I've an idea that's not ideal at all
No appeal at all: a meal from you

Because with cooking, you'll be eatable
You'll make a great big and round meat-a-ball
And you are savoury, not sweet at all
No treat at all, to eat all of you

With lots of red sauce, I feel I could eat you all up
I've got lots of red sauce, but oh, no it isn't ketchup
I've an ocean of gravy, but it's too late for you to drown
As I sit round munchin'
My lover for luncheon
But can't keep inedible lover-meat down...

Your thighs and buttocks were so screwable
But on my plate they are unchewable
Afraid I don't like eating you at all
Unusable, eschewable you.

A dinner party? That's not sensible
In fact it would be reprehensible
To serve you up - that's indefensible
And hence I will just have to eat you

Your hands, when flattened, look quite toastable
I guess the rest may just be roastable
And I'm not bothered by your ghost at all
But most of all I'm grossed out by you

I wish that I'd worked out a way for taking the piss
You were such a good cook, that I thought you'd cook better than this
But I can't compost you, it's not just a question of waste
My answer is merely
To add loads more chilli
And curry, etc. to cover the taste

Your guts and garters weren't ingestable
Your uncut toenails - incontestable
That they are simply not comestible
And breasts were all detestable, too

I worry you might be implodable
What sort of toad that it was in the hole
Oh, why was I so very goadable
Exploded and unloaded on you?

I tried sautéing your hairy back
For nose souflée, I do not have a knack
I was disgusted by fried furry crack
Rack placque - alack, like a Big Mac, ewww

Alive, your weight was not an issue
But there's so much adipose tissue
I guess you're not my kind of dish, you
Inedible... you

I can't get you down
I can't get you down
When the cops come around
Hope I've ate you all..

Exquisitely macabre !!! Loved it. :)

I find Tim Minchin to be hilarious, and I find cannibalism to be amusing in a song parody or original work, a horror novel or a horror movie, but repulsive in most other realms. I could see Jeffrey Dahmer singing this, especially since he had (if I remember right) various cuts of flesh, a severed head and ketchup as the main items in his refrigerator when he was arrested. 555 whacks of the meat cleaver to you.

Andria - Tim Minchin *is* hilarious.. if nothing like as well-known as he might be. Somebody who can play the piano that well and sing (and at the same time), come up with fantastically witty lyrics... well, there's a word for someone like that, but I don't think the filter would let me post it :)

Tommy - food for thought?

Thanks.. I wasn't expecting a huge turnout for this one (however pleased I happen to be with it) as Mr Minchin isn't a global sensation. Yet.

Tasty stuff, Phil :)

I obviously didn't know the OS, but I found your lyrics hilarious...loved the dark humor. I found myself laughing and wanting to read more. Well done! And thinks for introducing me to Minchin.

Oh MY. Great work here, Phil...very funny. I was listening to the Sweeney Todd soundtrack at my desk before I decided to do my SOTM stuff. AS cannibalism is the theme of the day...not sure I'm going to be able to eat dinner...; )

I wonder - do comics and clowns taste funny? And there are always people who are hard to swallow - this must be the case in this parody. Very morbid, but in satire it has merit. May I suggest that you buy the Jeff Dahmer cookbook to resolve your culinary issues? Fine handling of shocking subject matter.

(SOTM) So many great lines, incredible pacing...I can't find anything wrong. Well done, 555!

Hard to top(ping) the original, but it went down fine.

(SOTY) Deliciously wicked!

Seems this Minchin is like the Tom Lehrer of the 21st century, eh? His song was way too long, but still funny, and that my friend really gave you quite the challenge here. You started using his words a bit much near the end. Kudos on pushing your "-ible" rhyming word knowledge to the test.

SOTY...still had fun with this one, Phil...

I'm pretty big on dark humor and this tickled my, uh, recently gnawed-on humerus. Well executed and what a sweet OS.
DJ Blaze - April 11, 2010 - Report this comment
Weird and funny OS, plus the pacing seemed spot-on. 555

This was a fun twist on the original song. I like it overall, though I'll admit not as much as your Snow White related parody, it was still pretty good

Excellent work...left me hungry for more
Allow me to recommend a movie...
