The Lyrics

This is about former National Review columnist John "Derb" Derbyshire, who was recently fired for writing a racist article for another e-zine. The article basically described how he was teaching his children not to hang out with black people, not to be a Good Samaritan to black people who need help, et cetera. Basically, it's something that wouldn't have been out of place in a Jim Crow-era Southern newspaper.
A-well-a, everybody's heard about the Derb
Derb, Derb, Derb D-Derb is a turd
A racist turd, turd, turd, the Derb is a turd
A racist turd, turd, turd, well the Derb is a turd
A racist turd, turd, turd, the Derb is a turd
A racist turd, turd, turd, well the Derb is a turd
A-well-a, Derb, Derb, D-Derb's a turd
A-well-a, Derb, Derb, Derb D-Derb's a turd
A racist turd, turd, turd, well the Derb is a turd
A racist turd, turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a Derbyshire is such a racist turd
A-well-a turd turd, D-Derb is a turd

A-well-a everybody's heard that he's a turd
Turd, turd, turd, a bigoted turd
A-well-a turd turd turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a turd turd turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a turd turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a turd turd turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a turd turd turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a turd turd turd, Derb is a turd
A-well-a turd turd turd, Derb is a turd
The fellow smells worse than a moldy curd
But he's fond of math*, and he's a nerd
A-well-a turd turd, D-Derb's absurd
A-well-a, turd

Surfin' Turd!
Bbbbbbbbbbbbbb, aaaah

Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa
Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow

Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Oom-oom-oom-oom-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-oom-oom-oom
Oom-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-a-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, ooma-mow-mow
Papa-oom-oom-oom-oom-ooma-mow-mow
Oom-oom-oom-oom-ooma-mow-mow
Ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, ooma-mow-mow
A-well-a, Derb is such a lousy turd
Least he didn't use that "N" six-letter word
A-well-a, Derb's a turd, Derb's a turd

Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow
Papa-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow...
* He wrote a famous book about the Riemann hypothesis. I guess he should have stuck to writing about math rather than race. If he had, he'd still have his job.
