The Lyrics

What the Hell...
You might not like the Hell of Dante's Inferno
So watch out for the folks you tell where to go
It's not a pleasant smell in Dante's Inferno
You will find people there you don't want to know

There's salesmen tryin' to sell
Executives from Pac Bell
And politicians dwell in Dante's Inferno

You can't afford the rent in Dante's Inferno
Your big reward was spent before you arrived
No use to praise the Lord in Dante's Inferno
Whom you ignored the years that you were alive

You think that you're in deep doo?
There's lawyers ready to sue
There is no safe path through this Dante's Inferno

(Yeowch, ow, ow, hot! Hot!!, wa-hooo! Man that smarts!)

Oh, no, now there's a wait for Dante's Inferno
You have to take a plate and stand in a line
It's boredom that I hate in Dante's Inferno
And now they've turned on the "No Vacancy" sign

This place is really the pits
They don't provide oven mitts
And all the fires are lit in Dante's Inferno

Dante's Inferno, Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno, Dante's Inferno

Whooo, yow, ow ow ow......

DKTOS but I do know some Dante, yet I entered this parody without abandoning all hope.

It's no coincidence that Pac Bell rhymes with hell.

Have you read "Inferno" by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle? I highly recommend it.

It's very RIGHT ON!!!! Very,very FUNNY!!!!! I'm sure Peter would find it very FUNNY!! I am a post-monopausal woman,and STILL can't figure out what all those weird noises Peter made on that song! The original sounds like some of the old ladies in my former neighborhood!

It's funny but theres no fire in "The divine comedy of Dante alighieri INFERNO". Just hurricanes, swamps, and frozen lakes..
