The Lyrics

ft. Adam Lavine. This vulture is just trying to live his life and be understood by the mass populace. Don't hate buzzards for doing what they do. That's all he's asking!
Chorus: My grub is carrion
It is all dead, so it can’t run
As it rots under the sun, uh-hun
It may not sound much fun
But who said I was such a nun
This food web chart says that’s my food
So I’ll eat grub, you call carrion

Blaydeman parodies baby!

Verse 1: If I was just another bird of prey up in the sky
I wouldn’t have to wait for my food to just go and die
When I asked you to pet my head, and you looked with dread
Like it is gross, that is nasty, what you said instead
Furthermore, I apologize for eating rotting dead
It’s just that it’s my nature it say that on this large food web
You hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it when a buzzard’s fed
Cuz eating corpses, cleaning up get you so disgusted
If could only find a way to make you understand
Just read a pamphlet or a book and see I’m scavengin’
And after reading what you read, be you favorite bird
And know my grub is just carrion, is not a dirty word

Chorus: My grub is carrion
I like it rare, and not well done
A carcass on a whole-wheat bun uh-hun
You like to scoff and shun
But with my bald head and talons
I’m built for this, so I showed you
That’s why my grub, is all carrion
Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum! (Love my carrion!)
Yum! Yum! Yum!
I love my grub, cuz it’s carrion

Let’s go!

Verse 2: If I was a great big hundred pound ostrich
Would you feed me lots of peanuts without a small hitch?
Would you think that I’m gross for living in that niche?
And think it’s normal every time put my head in ditch?
So all I ask is that you don’t get mad at me
When I have to live my life so nat’rally
Appreciate every decay not in way
You never know where it would go
If we were to go away
Don’t think I’ll ever find a way to make you understand
If you could see it’s necessary that we are extant
Get myself onto your list, like your favorite bird
And know my grub is just carrion, is not a dirty word

Chorus: My grub is carrion
I ate so much I weigh a tone
Hear me kill another pun uh-hun
This may surprise and stun
Offer some, but you’ll have none
I guess this stuff is not for you
So I’ll eat all, of this carrion
Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum! (Love my carrion!)
Yum! Yum! Yum!
I love my grub, cuz it’s carrion

Bridge: I only eat this cuz that’s how I evolved
I know this problem can be so hard to solve
I fill your head with facts I hope will absolve
Just cuz it’s dead, does not mean it just dissolves

Chorus: My grub is carrion
It’s not for you so carry on
Fueled my brain to write this song o-ong
You make me think that it’s wrong
But so’s eating leaves all day long
You don’t see me chiding you
So leave me be, to eat carrion
Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum! Yum! (Love my carrion!)
Yum! Yum! Yum!
I love my grub, cuz it’s carrion

Fun song, I hear you worked with the production software on the recording as well :) Tough song to parody, the pacing matched well, and funny lines

Great recording. This one looked like it was a tough one to pull off but you do a lot of rap songs so this one was probably easy for you. This was a pretty awesome parody and reminded my of my own "Bothered By Buzzards"

(SOTM) Aw, now I feel sorry for the poor vultures, even though they do look like Satan's pet bird. Great parody here, you avoided the main pitfall with rap parodies, which is running out of materiel for the subject due to the lengthy nature of the lyrics, so well done on that. 555!

I'm not a huge fan of rap parodies, but I really like this made me really feel sorry for those ugly, carcass eating birds. Nice work!
