The Lyrics

Traveling in a Vas-De-fer-ens
From a testicle, with all of my friends
I met a strange lady, with egglike features
She took me in and we made some creatures

And she said,
"Do you come from a gland down under?
That women know how to plunder?
Come in here, come in here and sunder
Your journey's done, you're under my cover."

Giving head to a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
She said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave her a DNA sandwich

And he said,
"I come from my gland down under
With sudden flows of man-chunder
Can't you hear my internal thunder?
'Cause here I come, you wetter snake lover."

Lying in a den in Bombay
Although I'm straight, he thinks that I'm gay
I said to the man, "Don't you see I've no hard on,
Because oth-er men do not turn me on?"

And he said,
"Oh! Do you come from that gland down under? (oh yeah yeah)
That women know how to plunder?
I can see that I made a blunder
You're a straight one, you can't be my lover."

We come from the glands down under
That mom and dad once did plunder
Thank your folks for their jolly plunder
Or you would not be reading this chunder

(repeat to fade)

As any Aussie will tell you, there's a lot of interesting things "down under"

Nice work, Johnny! Still smiling! 555...

Cute, Johnny! And how did the line about the man from Brussels get past you-know-who?
Johnny D - May 19, 2004 - Report this comment
Thank you, Rick D, Arwen, and Mari D.

Mari - I think it got past because it uses only words and phrases that can be creatively explained in clean, innocent, non-sexual terms to an inquiring child.

:D You get away with a lot of stuff here.

Johnny D - Not only very clever and funny but a reasonably good biology lesson, too. Have you ever considered teaching? Of course they'd throw your ass in jail if you presented this to a school-age group, but you can't deny they WOULD learn a lesson from that at the very least. Yes, your explanation to Mari D is probably 100% correct. It's likely the same reason my Sheryl Crow parody "Is It Long Enough..." made it through.

Oh, Johnny... What can I say? I thought the tone was set quite low to start with... then on the second verse it went down even more ;-)
Johnny D - May 20, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Philbo...the parody was meant to go down under!

Finally! "Chunder" explained in plain and simple terms! ;-D
Peregrin - May 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Muwahahah! Funnier than you all know! Johnny is a master! More and more though I am having trouble understanding why one of Merry's and mine got knocked back....! Despite the above! Good job!
Adagio - May 21, 2004 - Report this comment
I wondered about 'chunder' too, Mer. Johnny, how do you come up with these words?
Johnny D - May 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks Mer and Pip!

Adagio, I first heard "chunder" on Saturday Night Live in Mike Meyer's "Wayne's World" sketch - in that sketch, "chunder" meant the contents of one's stomach after they have been regurgitated. But I think there might be more than one meaning....it might apply to bodily fluids/exudates/products in general.

Peregrin, please feel free to PM me a copy of the one that got bounced back, and I'll have a look at it. I can't explain why mine go through and some others occasionally don't....I think it's possible that sometimes just a single word can block one from posting....we can't read The Mind Of Grosvenor, no matter how hard we may try!

Very dirty. I wonder if I could get some of my dirtier parodies on here?
