The Lyrics

A package arrived just the other day,
In a plain brown wrapper from Saddam Hussian.
There was a note inside addressed to me,
And a small glass vial that said mad cow disease.

Well I've been infected and I don't know how
I'm feeling like a killer cow, man!
I'm feeling like a killer cow!

Chorus
The virus is in the water, and the food.
Eating cheeseburgers just wouldn't be cool
When you gonna get the cure, man!
I don't know when
I'll feel better then yeah!
You know I'll feel better then.

Well, men in hazmat suits showed up just the other day
Said come on buddy! let us take you away
I unstuck my head from out of the trough
Said I'm chewing cud right now, you can all bugger off
As they got out the noose I occurred to me
The tags on their shirts said Micky D's yeah!
The tags on their shirts said Micky D's

Chorus
The virus is in the water and the food
Eating cheeseburgers just wouldn't be cool
When you gonna get the cure, man!
I don't know when
I'll feel better then yeah!
You know I'll feel better then.
