The Lyrics

Went to buy meat in the deli
No more cookin' SPAM ev'ry night and day
But I nearly lost the food I'd been eatin'
Worryin' 'bout the way their meat's lookin'

Big wheel keep on slicin'
Brown hairy moldy icin'

Growin'
Growin'
Growin' on their liver

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis
Chomped a lot of veal down in New Orleans
But I never saw the gross side of the deli
'Til I scratched the slime off that liver so green

Big steel wheel keeps cuttin'
Brown hairy moldy somethin'

Growin'
Growin'
Growin' on their liver

If you choke down that old liver
Bet you gonna find disease it will give
You had better worry
If it tasted funny
People eatin' liver like that just don't live

If you eat that organ
Autopsy soon be showin'

Somethin'
Glowin'
Growin' on your liver

Growin', growin', growin' on your liver
Growin', growin', growin' on your liver
Growin', growin', growin' on your liver

Well. The KFC parody made me hungry, but this one sure put an end to that. Still - fives, mate.

Oh, please de-liver us from Johnny, Amen! What a meat ball. Nice work JD.

Thanks ABD - glad to help with your New Years diet-resolutions!

Thanks, Guy - I think both you and I have had fun with strange (in)edibles as parody material, haven't we? Let's take inspiration wherever we can find it, even in the back of the 'fridge!

I've always hated liver anyway. Very creative!

Yes we have JD and I found another gem last night to work on. It should be posted this morning. First time for this song on this site as far as I can see doing a search. First Edition song from the 60s, "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)". It deals with nutrition.

Thanks Mari D !

Guy - I just read, voted, and commented on your parody of "Just Dropped In" ("Can't Get Thin") - good job!

It's probably just Mad Cow mold...
Johnny D - January 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Meriadoc - now it's my turn to say "Ewwwwww !!"

Johnny, when they finished making you they must have got rid of the mould...


...was that what I meant to say?

Heh heh heh thanks Phil !

Johnny D - Again you have taken what many of us once considered edible food and pulled it from the shelf, wrapped it around a dirty sweat sock, dragged it thru the gutter, seasoned it with slime and shoved it down thru the bowels of the foulest city septic system and up into our corner deli's meat counter. We recognize and salute you and now if you excuse me I'm going to retch up the "Philly Cheese Hoagie" I had at Denny's on my way up to Willitts today. Seriously, this one was so well written that when I found one word, ONE STINKING WORD that I didn't think was 100% PERFECT I thought of mentioning it. But that would be like stooping to flick a single, tiny, solitary maggot off a huge rottting carcass swarming with multitudes of odious vermin. You know, overkill. So I won't mention it. Nope, not at all. Not one word...

I'm actually a vegetarian, but before I stopped eating meat I loathed liver with a passion you can't imagine. I salute you for exposing this horrible "food" for the disgusting atrocity that it is! Also, these incredibly detailed and graphic lyrics make me feel even better about being vegetarian!

Thank you, Moony_K!
