The Lyrics

based on the latest episode of south park......
on the first part of the journey
we were lookin' for signs of life
he was man and bear and pig, it seems
he was half of all these things
the next thing i knew, there were rock slides and stuff
trapped inside...underground
i seen this pot...and this lifeless guy
its his lair, that i have found

i've been eatin' treasure...i've a fortune to claim
it felt bad but i don't mind the pain
eatin' treasure...i sure am glad that i came
cause i'll have some fun with this gift, i have gained
ha ha...ha....ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha...ha...ha
ha ha...ha....ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha...ha...ha

after two days..in the cavern's tum
my skin was starting to spread
after three days...of this cavern fun
i was lookin' 'bout half-past dead
it was scary and cold..when the creek overflowed
i was fat and sank down like lead

i've been eating treasure...i've a fortune to claim
it felt bad but i don't mind the pain
eating treasure...i sure am glad that i came
cause i'll have some fun with this gift, i have gained
ha ha...ha....ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha...ha...ha
ha ha...ha....ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha...ha...ha

after four days...i finally made it free
cause my buddies had rescued me
i had gold and jewels and cups and rings
i had crammed all i could bring
i'm crappin' out the treasure in a big shiny mound
while my buddies gaze at the stuff
its such a pity...they're all fake, i have found
and consumin' em sure was tough

i've been eatin' treasure and i feel so ashamed
it felt bad cause i knew i'd be blamed
eatin' treasure...with no fortune to claim
cause its all just fake and i think that its lame
ha ha...ha....ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha...ha...ha
ha ha...ha....ha ha ha ha..ha ha ha...ha...ha

LMAO! The treasure might've only been worth $14, but this parody's worth three 5s!

Haven't seen the latest SP. I can't stand TOS, so you get 5s on that alone (the parody was worth 5s, but had it not been you still would have received them).

Man, I was not expecting a Horse With No Name parody here. This is seriously funny; the ending to the episode was hilarious, too.
