The Lyrics

I was tired of burritos, I'd eaten them for so long,
they would give me colitis, my digestion was wrong,
so as I lay there farting, a plug was closing my schnozz
though as an air filter, I used the wife's bras..

I'm eating green enchiladas,
eating sawdust and grains,
I am now into health food,
no caviar or champagne
if you like snacking cakes at midnight,
be baboon, be an ape
try a little banana,
or a bowl of red grapes..


so I went off the fast food,
my doctor said it was bad,
and though I abhorred it,
this vegetation's not bad
when I went to the toilet,
it was softer and smooth,
as I wiped up my button,
this diet change a good move..

I'm eating green enchiladas,
eating sawdust and grains,
I am now into health food,
no caviar or champagne
if you like snacking cakes at midnight,
be baboon, be an ape
try a little banana,
or a bowl of red grapes..

so I grate my arti-chokes,
put my meals in their place
I know I feel in an instant,
that my colon has space
it was a new revelation,
a food plan I knew
can you eat food that's better?
and you fart, hey who knew??

do you like green enchiladas,
eating sawdust and grains,
I am now into health food,
no caviar or champagne
if you like snacking cakes at midnight,
be baboon, be an ape
try a little banana,
or a bowl of red grapes..

544, top-man. It's unfortunate that I find the original song very amusing as it is, and had to approach this parody with some distance to see its values. But this is well done and funny.

I liked this one, but I think TOS came out in the seventies. Nice job on the parody itself though.
