The Lyrics

Amanita phalloides ("Death Cap"), virosa, pantherina, and muscaria are among the toxic mushrooms routinely picked by ill-informed foragers.
We skipped the news,
Paid it no mind.
Yes, we're relentless
And forage till we find
These ain't shitakes*
That in glade grew;
We drop to the land and pick 'em apace
Then start to chew.

We champ champignons; my friends
And me keep on biting till the end.
We champ champignons,
We champ champignons
Of life; we're losers
'cause we champ champignons,
Goodbye, world.

Amanita chow
Will cause you to fall--
It's the infamous fungus
That is enjoyed by the dimwits
Till their livers stall.

Dead then from organ necrosis. . .
Brief pleasure chews
Precede the choking and gagging and
Going blue in the face;
They then take the morgue cruise.

We champed champignons; my friends
And I kept on biting till the end.
We champed champignons,
We champed champignons.
Wish we'd been new buffs;
We'd not champ champignons.
Shoulda hurled.

I could write a whole column on uninformed people who poison themselves by eating toadstools when they think they are mushrooms. I hate mushrooms because I think they are a natural source of monosodium glutanate.
