The Lyrics

*Formerly Archer Daniels Midland, an evil agribusiness conglomerate.
Tamales Are Wrong for Me

The sun on the meadow gives birth to the corn,
To which I have an allergy.
It makes me break out in a hives-like storm.
Tamales are wrong for me.

The plants looks so pretty—they're silky and green.
Rhinitis will just make you sneeze.
But corn allergy can make your throat seize
Tamales are wrong for me.

When I eat corn, I'm unable to respire;
I can't even squeeze out a wheeze.
My trachea feels like it is on fire.
Tamales are wrong for me.

Oh, farmerman, farmerman, you would do fine
To convert your crops to soybeans.
And sell the harvest to ADM* swine.
Tamales are wrong for me.

DKTOS, but honey, that is awful! Is that true? Are you really allergic to corn? No Tamales? No Popcorn? No Doritos? Good LORD!

5's, especially for lines like "Rhinitis will just make you sneeze" for "The Rhine gives its gold to the sea". When I was in 8th grade, I was cast as a singing/dancing waiter in our high school drama club's production of Cabaret. The director chose me to sing "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" ..... I think he chose me because I could sing in a high tenor range, and, at the time, I probably looked the most "Aryan" of the bunch.

Thanks, Ash--no, not allergic. Danke, JD.
