The Lyrics

This is the first parody in our Flatworm Trilogy. It was actually written last, but it's going to show up first in the list... I know, I know - tapeworms aren't in the liver, but stomach didn't rhyme... hee hee
I don't know why I'm eatin' like I do
I'm so skinny, but eat like a gnu
Scarf burritos and casseroles
Eat sausage rolls from finger bowls
I'm gonna see what Doc'll tell me
He said to me
Tapeworm's in your liver, and in your intestine
Tapeworm's in your liver, munchin' on your breakfast
Slurpin' it down, slurpin' it down

I don't know why I'm feeling so bad
Tuna casserole made me feel flat
Those sesame seeds were not what they seemed
Those worms they hatched and they're sharing my feed

Don't wanna know what Doc'll tell me
He said to me
Tapeworm's in your liver, and in your intestine
Tapeworm's in your liver, munchin' on your breakfast
Slurpin' it down, slurpin' it down

Slug me, squeeze me, hurt me, seize me
I'm so thin, I'm so thin, I'm so thin I'm invisible
Tapeworm's in my liver, and in my intestine
Tapeworm's in my liver, munchin' on my breakfast
Slurpin' it down, slurpin' it down

I don't know why I eatin' like I do
All the Bromide I have gone through
Don't need a diet, got my wee friends
And must show Doc a sample of specimens

I need a pill - Doc must sell me
Prescribe for me
Tapeworm's in my liver, and in my intestine
Tapeworm's in my liver, munchin' on my breakfast
Slurpin' it down, slurpin' it down

You could have used a liver fluke or maybe even a hookworm...hehehe.

Aside form the fact that tapeworms arent in livers (like you said), this parody was awesome! "I'm so skinny, but eat like a gnu" just got me onthe floor laughing!
