The Lyrics

Sand
And then there's still more sand in this long tome
Spice
They seek it on their planetary home
And it has something to do with worms
Would not read it sick in bed with germs

So darling, don't read "Dune"
You're never going to get back all the minutes that you squandered
No darling, don't read "Dune"
I think that book is longer than the path those hobbits wandered
And the movie that they made was quite a crock, too

And now
You'd think that all the sci-fi clubs had passed
But still the stupid thing is selling fast
And I see that most folks are confused
The plot is so thick and overused
And I'd rather watch cartoons

So darling, don't read "Dune"
You're never going to get back all the minutes that you squandered
No darling, don't read "Dune"
I think that book is longer than the path those Munchkins wandered
And the movie that they made was quite a crock, too

So darling, don't read "Dune"
You're never going to get back all the minutes that you squandered
No darling, don't read "Dune"
I think that book is longer than the path those Hebrews wandered
And the T.V. show they made was quite a crock, too

Go
And beat yourself because you looked inside
Fried
Is what your brain will be if still you tried
It's okay to not read "Dune"

Aw, I'm actually a big fan of the book (the entire Dune series actually!) Although both attempts at movies left much to be desired.

One of my all-time favorite songs. Yes, "Dune" just might cause you to "Go and beat your crazy head against the sky." (Whether John Sebastian wrote that before Jimi Hendrix wrote, "'Scuse me while I kiss the sky," I don't know.) And, in the words of the late, great film critic Gene Siskel, "Everybody knows that 'Dune' stunk."
