The Lyrics

Although this is a very brutal song parody, cannabalism and hunting of Pygmies actually goes on today. Many Congolese soldiers hunt them both for sport and to eat. The male genitalia of Pygmies is considered a delicacy too in certain parts of Africa- which is plain gross!!! This started as "Ate a Man for Dinner" but got more specific when I thought about the reality of cannabalism... shocking!!!
I'm gonna sharpen my machete,
take a Pygmy’s life
He's gonna taste real good,
gonna make a difference
I’m gonna eat tonight . . .

As I, raise the temperature higher at my
improvised campfire
This hunger is blowin' my mind
I see the Pygmies in retreat,
and I know I gotta eat
Who am I, to be denied?
Pretending not to seek
a treat
With total disregard,
I grab a bottle shard
and a machete, then go
Hunting them, following them through
the jungle in stride
'Cause they really have nowhere
to hide
I’m slaughtering one with my machete
Now DIE!!! DIE!!! DIE!!!

I'm eating a small Pygmy
For dinner
I'm roasting him alive on
a very long spear
And my body can’t be
any more thinner
If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place
(If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place)
Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate
(Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate)
(Yu Yu Yu, Yu Yu Yu, Yu Yu,
Yu-Yum!!!)

He’s become a victim of a devilish
kind of hunger
It's time that they realize
That there are some that don’t eat
animals, that some are really cannibals
Yes, I’ve gotta eat,
And I’m gonna feast (on Pygmies)
‘Cause their flesh is so sweet!!!

Africa is deeply scarred,
Congo’s got a black heart
And many broken dreams
(Broken dreams)
The demons follow the hunger of
lost soldiers, Ya' see
‘Cause the Pygmies got no place
to be
That's why they’re so fun to hunt and
Eat
(So fun to hunt and eat!)

I'm eating a small Pygmy
For dinner
(Oh yeah!)
I'm roasting him alive on
a very long spear
(Oh yeah!)
And my body can’t be
any more thinner
If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place
(If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place)
Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate
(Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate)

I'm eating a small Pygmy
For dinner
(Oh yeah!)
I'm roasting him alive on
a very long spear
(Oh yeah!)
And my body can’t be
any more thinner
If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place
(If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place)
Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate
(Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a…)
Plate!!!

I'm eating a small Pygmy
For dinner,
(A small Pygmy for dinner-Oh
Yeah!)
I'm roasting him alive on
a very long spear
(Roasting him alive!)
And my body can’t be
any more thinner
(If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place)
(Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate)
(You gotta spear him right, and
and ignore his whine)
('Cause when you gotta
eat)
You can’t spare . . .his
life!
(You can‘t spare his
life!)
Small Pygmy, Small Pygmy, Small
Pygmy, Small Pygmy
Eating a small Pygmy for dinner
(A small Pygmy for dinner, Oh Yeah!)
Small Pygmy, Small Pygmy, Small Pygmy
I'm roasting him alive on
a very long spear
(Roasting him alive!)
Eat him . . .small Pygmy
And my body can’t be
any more thinner
If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place
(If I wanna survive this hostile,
brutal place)
Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate
(Take a chunk outta a Pygmy, and
then make a plate)
Woo-Hoo! Woo-Hoo! Woo-Hoo!

Serve him up with a plate of Soylent Green. One of the scariest songs I've ever seen here.
