The Lyrics

JMJ This is the obvious parody. BTW if you don't get "southend", look at the human body: if the head is the northend...
My name is Puka
I just threw up on the floor
Don't complain I could have thrown up on you
You act like you ain't seen it before
Could have been the soft southend surprise
Could have been the raisin bread had some flies
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was

I'll act like I don't mind
Your suicide sausage links
Or your rotten roadkill recipe
Or your thrice-spoiled milk you gave me to drink
Now I'm not one to bitch 'bout the meal
Or your furry fries or your veteran veal
Just don't offer anymore
Just don't offer anymore
Just don't offer anymore

I tried your old oysters
I drank some of your Rubbish Rosee
But it doesn't matter now what you say
It's not your vomit now anyway
I don't want to seem ungrateful for this, nice try
But next time, I think I'd rather starve and die
Just don't ask me anymore
Just don't ask me anymore
Just don't ask me anymore
I gues the "southend" explanation should have been saved for a "bottom" comment.

dobbs--watch out eating too much malitol, a sugar substitute--it might not make you puke, but it will do a number on you; just a whacky little comment to let you know I read your parody, take care

JMJ Thanks for the advice, Royce. After that meal, I need all the intestinal stability I can find.

I thought this was pretty good Doobs, certainly kicked 'sothend' outta Vega's catatonic dirge!

Dobbs, brilliant parody. I first heard this on Z100 radio station inPortland, OR when I was a kid some time in the 80's. Laughed my ass off. Would like to shake your hand for writing this. Where can I find the mp3?

very good. I always thought Puka sounded better than Luka...but thought it would follow on with an eating disorder, but the food poisoning, Brilliant!

The one from the '80s was probably the one done by Bud LaTour. That should be enough info to find it.
