The Lyrics

M&P wish to formally claim the first use of the word "perambulator" in a parody !
Conked out, got fumigated
Because the sump thing wasn't cleared
We've got to get ourselves a few respirators
We got a dread pollution fear

And you know, it bites
Such an unsav'ry blight
We have got to get a hep' filter
We have got to get a hep' filter now!

Wash out and bleach your trousers
And give good scrubbing to your hair
We've got to get Plug Ins for per-ambulator
Ju-nior did his ablutions here!

To my nose it's ripe
Like baloney and tripe
We have got to get a hep' filter
We have got to get a hep' filter now!

Stand in the house, and whammo!
Here comes our last remaining fear
In pantry food is off, it's mouldy potatoes
Quick! Get the disinfectant here!

It's an ugly sight
Got a terrible fright
My olfact'ry said it had never
We must stock up Lysol emitters

Very good parody, especially the ablutions line. I haven't seen your work for a while - have I missed it or have you been on sabbatical with Johnny D?

Thanks everyone. Yes, John we have, through a series of unavoidable circumstances. Thanks for noticing!

Once you spend a sabbatical with Johnny D - you are never the same - ha ha! ;-)
John Jenkins - March 12, 2005 - Report this comment
And I suspect that Johnny D would say that spending a sabbatical with Merry & Pippin is a life-altering experience as well.
Johnny D - March 13, 2005 - Report this comment
They've never been the same since. ;-D
