The Lyrics

Oh did you take dirt and fry?
It is extraordinary to do,
Take a fried brain, so good I could cry,
And especially if it has extra goo.

I am a Moulden, so I like this food,
I am a golden Moulden, so I like this food.

Talking is cheap, people follow like sheep.
I wish they would make up their own minds.
Some say can't spell it, they sure won't eat it.
Pretty sad, they just sit on their hinds.

All these times you could have food that you like ,
When instead you eat food that you're told.
You could be having some eyeballs fried,
Or if I may be bold, have some mold.

Silence makes old, but at least you have choice,
Silently push the plate away or eat up more.

I'm not familiar with the oringinal song, and You did not have an introduction, so I will save my vote until I know what it is I am voting on, can you explain it to me?

Didn't like it, but credit where it's due for A) knowing the original, and B) knowing that Frankie and the boys did it first, in 1964, NOT the Tremeloes in '67.

Diva....the midi to this song is found here.. What it was referring to was that some people let others dictate what they will eat and vote.

Being a member of the band Fried Dirt, I find this parady a little silly. When the words Fried Dirt are put together, there is a certain majesty. Rock On... Fried Dirt... Rock On
