The Lyrics

For anyone who's never heard of Gillian McKeith, a litigious snake-oil salesman of the first degree, the news that she's been told by the Advertising Standards Authority that she is no longer allowed to use her "Dr" title as it is "likely to mislead" is kind of hilarious. This woman's understanding of anything scientific seems to be so woefully absent as to be almost negative - if you fancy a laugh, have a read of this article on badscience.net; and to anyone who watches her "You are what you eat" programme on Channel 4, please remember that this woman is scientifically illiterate and has done no research into the efficacy of the solutions she recommends.
She was called "Doctor" G McKeith
Advising people what to eat
The ASA gave her what for
She ain't gonna be "Doctor" no more
Quackety quack (take it back)

Says chlorophyll is good in food
It will oxygenate your blood
But chlorophyll requires light
And in your gut it's dark as night
Quackety quack (don't know jack)

You'll age quickly and waste away
If you don't have 'nuff DNA
Algae can help that, says McKeith
Her ignorance beyond belief
Quackety quack (brain is slack)

A noxious bully, through and through
She's always threatening to sue
But now she can't 'cause we're not wrong
It's proven, so I wrote this song
Quackety quack (don't come back)

Quackety quack, quackety quack
Quackety quack, quackety quack
Quackety quack, quackety quack
Quackety quack, quackety quack

Hackety hack. This doc's a quack but this parody ain't. Robust 5s.

Well done, Phil, and thanks for explaining.

Nice one. Could it do with more verses?
Phil Alexander - March 02, 2007 - Report this comment
pv - Does the OS have more verses than this? I could certainly have written more about the ex-Dr (there's plenty of wonderful comedic material in her history)... as it happens, I'm pondering writing an "Always a woman to me" parody about "The awful poo lady".
Thanks, everybody :-)
