The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
While skiing in Nepal I ate some tainted yak
Bad culinary stores - preservatives they lack
I’m in a world up high blessed by some monkly blokes
I’d rather spurn a chance to have my breakfast yoked

No beef in Himalays but shared some tainted yak
I glower as I plumb all Ev’rest for a quack
Why me, am I turning red, then sickly shades of grey?
Yikes! - them third-world babies, well they lap this ev’ryday

Gas cooks inside myself - I’m yakking in this shack
And at my back door I thrust wind from painful clack
Say this food that stayed and played should not have embraced my tracts
It's hard eating gracefully when you’re surprise attacked

Abhor all shaggy beasts tureened in heated stew
Or you will - trust me - become crappily subdued
If I look hard for lunch find bit of bactrian
Two humps they’ll halve for me - prefer my portion one

In U-lan Ba-tor too I ate some tainted yak
Nomadic conspirers - they khanned me with this snack
My stomach swirls away as botuled yummer grows
Hot damn! Confirmed, my friend! That meat was on the nose

A diet-ry disgrace: tainted yak, yak is YUCK! Yak in mould
Don't want it on a bun, or inside of a pie
Don’t wanna eat a tainted, tainted, tainted, tainted yak, bleeech!

Never had yak, but I've had buffalo and moose and gator. And ain't nothing worse than food poisoning. Undercooked chicken had me laid up for a week once.

Awesome original song, and unique sub-title for it. . .this one (the original) is a fun song to perform, and your pacing is flawless for it.

I was waiting for a Tainted Love parody, but still loved the idea. You really can't go wrong with Yaks. And my security code was YAK! It was meant to be! (Okay, I lied about the security code, but it had to be said).

Never been to Nepal but I was in Japan and there they are a bit more civilized with most of their food, in fact the YAKuza mob boys chow out daily on sukiYAKi , teriYAKi ,YAKi-soba and YAKi-tori. And then there was this guy... yack yack yack...

You hobbits this is excellent. Best use of the words "clack" and "tureened " ever in a parody. In fact or yacked, it absolutely clacked me up. OOOh you so funny hobbits you so clack me up. You go now - write mo palody fo Yakuza.

I thought Tainted Love too. Being on the tail end (pun not intended) of a pretty bad stomach virus, I felt the pain..

Thanks everyone!

Renaldo - loved the Big Yak reference! Wish I'd thought of it for the parody - ha ha.

I thought the same: "How did this pass us by?" Waaah!
