The Lyrics

As far as I know only two modern Swedish words have gotten themselves into the English language - "ombudsman" and "smorgasbord" – and hence this parody is one part of a themed bitty ditty two-piece project on those words, both set to songs from Metallica's first album "Kill 'em all" from 1983. (So should I discover later that there are more words, then I can build from there).
Drool is dripping on your hips
There's overwhelming mounts o' chips

Your body's wailing through a prayer
There's taste of party in the air

Hear the stomach roar
Louder than a boar
Take a fork in hand
At this table, grand
Chow down, time to sate
Take a primal plate
Fondues' full of cheese, at my smorgasbord

Vegans' shaking like Japan
You hear them crying at a pan

There's chop so fresh it's going "Moo"
And there's nothing they can do

See the pie galore
Bigger than a shore
With a knife in hand
Feel your waist expand
Chow down sparrows' breasts
Robins' on request
There is no debris, at my smorgasbord

What's leatheroid have been expelled
This smorgasbord is unexcelled

Smoke is coming from the grill
Surprise, it's centripetal krill

See there's rye like yore
Chowder, petit fours
With a spoon in hand
Be a whale on land
Chow down meat and pike
Take gigantic bites
Come out of the cheese, at my smorgasbord

Fill up Chablis
And chow at my smorgasbord

Good take on this OS, though you'll have to elaborate as to what "centripetal krill" means.

DKTOS but any song about all-you-can-eat buffets is worth three fives, IMO.
Lars Ulrich - July 14, 2005 - Report this comment
Hey this is Lars Ulrich from Metallica, and you're gonna burn in hell for offering an MP3 of my band's copyrighted song on your site! On the other hand, this parody is pretty damn good, so I'll have to cut your butt some slack. For now.

Olvan: Thanx!

Red Ant: Well, I learned the word ”centripetal” during the writing of this parody so I can only hope that I’m using it right, or at least not to eerie wrong. According to my Babylon dictionary it means ”proceeding toward a center; using centripetal force” and what I mean to say is that since krills are smaller than prawns/shrimps they need to go on the grill to be noticed among the other outstanding dishes on this here smorgasbord. Also, the whole sentence were inspired by that Australian saying (or maybe it’s a commercial jingle phrase) ”Put Another Shrimp on the Barbee, Matey”.
Stuart McArthur - July 15, 2005 - Report this comment
definitely the latter, Peter, as "shrimp" is a word you will never hear in Australia ("prawn" only) - it was Americanized for the commercial - although we do use "Shrimp" as an abbreviation for the 60s model Jean Shrimpton
