The Lyrics

(instrumental opening)

What'll you do when birds get hungry,
And no blade of grass is there to hide?
You've been squirming and crawling much too long,
You know you're just a ghoulish fly!

Larva!
You're hopping on the weeds!
Larva!
(An) Egg an' now you're free!
Larva!
Starlings want to eat your squirmy hide!

Tried to give you incubation
In the cold and wet-through ground
Like you're food, a bird above saw you,
Pecked your hole's dirt upside down!

Larva!
You're walking on the street!
Larva!
(And) Getting mauled by feet!
Larva!
Car-wheels stomp and beat your pearly hide!

(Now) Make the nest of your transformation
Before birds finally chow your brain
We all pray, your clever-minded way,
To shift your shape is not in vain!

Larva!
Cocooning in a tree!
Larva!
(You're) Breakin' out, you're free!
Larva!
Now you're going to be a butterfly!

(long instrumental and ending)

Brilliant wordplay on the OS but, I don't have to tell YOU that!

A fine deserving parody...Back on the farm, we used to wash our hands in Larva soap all the time... I thought, maybe this was about "Larva Girl" and "Shark Boy"

LOL, heard this on the radio today and thought of this song title. I guess that idea had a shorter life than a gypsy moth. 5s.
