The Lyrics

Durian is not the name of a comic-book villain, it is an unusual fruit grown in tropical areas, primarily in Southeast Asia. And it is well-known for being...well...
Durian stashed in the hull of a plane
They forbid it
Knowin' this fruit ain't immune to some ripenin'
It's tragic

'Cause oooh, the aroma's diiiire
It's so smelly, ohhh---worse than burnt tire! Baby!
It's a stinky thing
It's unbearable to your nose
Follow this one thing
Please don't spill its pulp on your clothes

It makes ya go BLEAUGHHH!
Gag!

Ain't a stinkweed, though it's hard to believe,
In the worst way--(it's ghastly, no jive)
Now shave off its rind, they say it tastes sublime,
Still I must say---(I spot it, like vomit!)

Now oooh, it's much to admire
Will you try it, will you eat it? ooh-eee! Oh, an odor of fire, baby!
It's a stinky thing!
Like a son of Pepe LePew's
A subjective thing--
I would rather inhale your shoes!

Please take it all back!
I will not snack! Hey!

Now don't ask me why, but it's revered by some Thais
It's "The Fruit King"! (they think it divine!)
A host that I know, "Bizarre Foods" TV show
He could not eat! (He skipped it! Won't take it!)

Now oooh, durian does inspire (I'm a poet, and I know it)
Oooh, eeeh---oh, comedy writers, baby!
What a stinky thing!
What a weird kind of fruit to choose
An emetic thing
It makes some have their lunch to lose
It's a stinky thing
Would you like to try fresh-squeezed juice?
It's a stinky thing...

I had not heard of Durian until now, but it sounds like the perfect topic for working BLEAUGHHH into a parody. :-)

Thanks Jon and Rex for voting & comments! (The unmerited and spiteful lowvoting here has been an ongoing problem ...)

Never heard this OS before but with the violin it's a whole lot of fun and this is a great and original song about a stinky fruit. Love it! More random topics Agrimorfee. It's always where you shine. Still love the Spatula/ Dragula spoof this one works just as great.

In Singapore, durian is also banned in some places which is that bad when it comes to that fruit. My parents like it and because of it, sometimes my house gets polluted by that toxic stench...

(Artistry) I wish I could remember where I've heard of durians before. Ah well, not the point. What is the point? You've written a fantastic parody about a very simple subject (that fruit done smell bad, yo) without being repetitive! And I got to learn what "emetic" means. 555 barf bags!

I have heard of durians before, but I didn't think it would be something you could stretch to a full parody. Great OS choice to go with the topic, and like mentioned above, you filled the song while being funny throughout and without being repetitive. Nicely done!

(Artistry) I'm very familiar with durian. Even tried it once. Brutal stuff. It tasted like a dirty foot. However, this parody left a much better taste in my mouth than that namesake fruit. Good work, I love your wacky topics.
