Parody Song Title:

"The Power of Dung"

Parody Written by:

Royce Miller

The Lyrics

this is about a creamery in California that uses manure to make
electricity by turning the manure into methane gas
The power of dung is a curious thing
Make lots of stink, make your eyes sting
Change manure to electricity
More than a cow pie, that's the power of dung

Shiny like diamonds, soft like cream
It comes from the pasture, comes from the stream
Make the lights come on, make the darkness bright
Power of dung, there's an endless supply

Chorus:
It saves money, this took brains
Just need a digester to make methane
It goes in dirty and comes out clean
Runs the milking machine
That's the power of dung
That's the power of dung

First time you smell it might make you gag
Next time you smell it might make you gag
But you'll be glad, consumer when you've found
That's the power that make your milk go round

Chorus

They shovel all the dung in piles
It creates some smiles
But it's the thing to do
Save a buck or two
Is this the weirdest song you've sung?
You feel the power of dung

It saves money, this took brains
Just need a digester to make methane
And a little engine to generate
The cheese is on your plate
And that's the power, that's the power of dung
That's the power, that's the power of dung
Yes that's the power of dung

Who's the "mess" now, Royce? ;-) You've got a well-fertilized imagination! 555, good job.

I watched a very interesting documentary, several years ago, that profiled either that place or one very similar. Nice job.

Aoid-do your initials stand for "an ordinary, ill-mannered dufus"?
