The Lyrics

Shiitake, yeah yeah yeah
Shiitake, yeah yeah yeah
Shiitake yeah yeah yeah yeah

They say you're special grub
And they're slicing you today
They'll pour you in a cup
When you're mushroom soup, all grey
Shiitake mushroom
Makes a soup that can't be bad
Shiitake mushroom
It'll make a gourmet glad

They wanted you to grow
So they filled a log with spawn
They kept you cool and wet
In a corner of the lawn
Shiitake mushroom
Has a flavor that is rad
Shiitake mushroom
It'll make my tastebuds glad

Shiitake yeah yeah yeah
Shiitake yeah yeah yeah
With a shroom like that
My tastebuds will be glad

And now it's up to you
To blossom on the wood
And we'll be eating you
For health you're very good
Shiitake mushroom
And the mushroom soup ain't bad
Shiitake mushroom
It'll make a gourmet glad OOh!

Shiitake yeah yeah yeah
Shiitake yeah yeah yeah
With a shroom like that
My tastebuds will be glad

With a shroom like that
My tastebuds will be glad

Well-paced and fun, Royce. Now I'm imagining an all-Japanese Beatles cover-band singing this tune on the TV show " Iron Chef ".

I love fresh Shiitake mushrooms. I bought one of those pre-spawned bag grow kits once. Wow did it fruit. I recall it leaving a ton of white spores in the area, but nothing beats fresh.

Japanese Beatles, now there's an idea, what next, "Let in Chi"?. Or would that be Chinese Beatles.

I agree with AFW and others (at least the ones who like 'shrooms).

Very good title, very good parody.

Nicely done, Royce! I thought a mushroom was a place where they trained sled dogs.
Larry Hensley - February 05, 2006 - Report this comment
This was really funny.
Tommy Turtle - February 05, 2006 - Report this comment
Did no one else get Mason R's pun, "fun guy"? Or was that not intentional? "fungi"
I broke up with a gf once because shiitake too much.
"Fab Five", Royce.

"So what's on the menu?"

"Let's see... we've got shiitake soup, shiitake stew, and shiitake casserole..."
