The Lyrics

ode to the slug
Well I'm slurpin down the road
Hope I don't meet a toad
I'm always runnin way behind
Lookin for some cover, things to crawl under
They're so hard to find

I ain't speedy
I ain't speedy
I need to find a tree or garden--something leafy
Citrus fruit is always good
And I like artichokes and wood
It takes awhile to chew my food
Cause I ain't speedy

Well I'm hangin on a house
Somewhere in Arizona
What a bad sight to see--
It's a guy named Joe with a garden hoe
And he's gonna take a swipe at me

Come on mister, let me sit here
I ain't gonna hurt nobody, how'd I get here?
Think I'm Ugly? That depends--
I've got more enemies than friends
But I don't want my life to end
I ain't speedy

Well I'm slimin' down the road
Hope I don't meet a toad
He would take a bite of me
Lookin for some cover
Something to crawl under
A hole would be lovely

I ain't speedy, I ain't speedy
I need to find a tree or garden
Something weedy
Citrus fruit is always good
And I like chewing on some wood
I'm just sluggin like I should
I'm not speedy

You know I ain't speedy
you know I ain't speedy......

Without a doubt, the best ode to a slug I've seen in a long time. Well done.

This got my attention after getting caught doing 49 in a 30 last night. Should've taken after the slug.

Royce, did you know that slugs like spaghetti? And they can hone in on a plate of it from about 20 feet away? (Sadly for them, my cats consider slugs good garnish...). Anyway, excellent parody. I especially liked the use of 'weedy'.

Meriadoc--thanks for the info about spaghetti and slugs. I didn't know this; another piece of invaluable knowledge I've gleaned from Amiright. Regards
