The Lyrics

Recently, thousands of dead pigs were observed floating down the Huangpu River in Shanghai. They were apparently dumped in the river by farmers upstream.
Down in ol' China, things ain't right
The farmers dumped them in the river one night
They can't sell the carrion anymore*
So they float 'em on down to the big seashore

You got your dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river floating down
And they're stinkin' to high heaven

Take a whiff on me, that ain't lo mein
See, Communism is insane
They're sellin' off rat and calling it lamb**
It's just as gross as the floating ham

You got your dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river floating down
And they're stinkin' to high heaven

Yeah your got your dead chicken, you got your dead cow
That ate melamine in the land of Mao
Got your dead panda and you got your dead worm
But mostly by weight, you're just eating germs

You got your dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river floating down
And they're stinkin' to high heaven

C'mon stink!

You got it!
They're dead, they're in the river
Dead pigs in the river floating down
Dead pigs in the river, floating down and they're stinkin' to high heaven!
All over the land, General Tzo's your man!
Oh, you got pollution
They're dead, they're in the middle
And they're stinkin' to high, high Heaven!
*Previously, they'd just sell the carcasses. However, a recent court case ruled that pig carrion was not fit for human consumption, so now the farmers are disposing of the pigs by disposing of them. Out of the frying pan, into the river. **Rat and fox meat was passed off as lamb meat recently, in another scandal.
