The Lyrics

Cicada recipes: http://www.urhome.umd.edu/newsdesk/pdf/cicada%20recipes.PDF
Seven-seven-seven-teen years to go
I wanna eat cicadas
No bugs to chew 'til they return, ohh
I wanna eat cicadas

Just get me to the airport, put me on a plane
Fly me fly me fly me, to tasty bug terrain
I can't control my hunger, no more can I abstain
Oh no, oh oh oh oh

Seven-seven-seven-teen years to go
I wanna eat cicadas
No bugs to chew 'til they return, ohh
I wanna eat cicadas

Feel like I'm in a coma, lusting for those bugs
Got cicada pictures, on T-shirts and on mugs
I'll bring along my grandma, I'll bring along my pugs
Woof woof, bow wow, oh oh

Seven-seven-seven-teen years to go
I wanna eat cicadas
No bugs to chew 'til they return, ohh
I wanna eat cicadas

I love their little red eyes, I love how they glow
Mating mating mating, they sure put on a show
I'll scrape 'em off the sidewalk, I'll cook 'em really slow
Yum yum, saute on low

Seven-seven-seven-teen years to go
I wanna eat cicadas
No bugs to chew 'til they return, ohh
I wanna eat cicadas

They taste so much like almonds, oh I love them so
Put them in a curry, or roll them in a dough
Their exo-skeleton shells, they make my colon go
Crunch crunch, grunt grunt, yo HO!

Yum-yum-bugga, yum-a-yum-bugga, I wanna eat cicadas
Yum-yum-bugga, yum-a-yum-bugga, I wanna eat cicadas
Yum-yum-bugga, yum-a-yum-bugga, I wanna eat cicadas
Yum-yum-bugga, yum-a-yum-bugga, I wanna eat cicadas

Hi Adagio - thanks for stopping by.

SO SO SO gross...I have a friend in Maryland who keeps sending me pictures of the gaggy bugs...and I'm about to choke myself just from the thought of living with them. HOWEVER...I've had a little thing for the Ramones ever since I watched "Rock & Roll High School" with my big brother when I was like...six...so...I have to give respect where it is due...nice work, Johnny...as always! 555!!

Thanks for the links, Johnny. What a fun, gross song...more fun, now that I know the music. 5's

Since the cicadas are in Cincinnati already, maybe they will start serving SIX-WAY chili. Great job on an event that happens every 17 years.

You are a sick man. But I still gave you 5's.

Woof woof bow wow - wow! I'm not sure I get the "seventeen years" reference, but no matter. I love this. The grandma line is my fave. And, damn, what a killer title.

I shoulda read Tim Hall's comment. That plus Google clued me in on "Brood X." I like this parody even more now.

The title is fantastic! The parody is really good. The concept is disgusting! In other words, classic Johnny D.
Claude Prez - June 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Me too about the title. I've been kicking around a couple cicada-themed parodies ever since the little monsters started flying in my face all day long. Anyway, tasty stuff.

It's odd - I lived in the midwest for 22 years, and I heard the things and I saw the empty shells, but I never saw a live one!

Thanks Merry.....my wife comes from Chicago.....she has childhood memories of walking on a very crunchy sidewalk!

(Gross) I really sank my teeth into this one, KTOS and all. You may have heard of Australia's current locust plague, the worst in 40 years. Then again, seeing how our Prime Minister's visit to USA a few years ago went by completely unnoticed, you probably HAVEN'T. Munch on these 5s.

Still a classic title and funny as hell. Plus it's easier to laugh at the little bastards now that they're all DEAD

PAAAAHAHAAAAHAAHAHAHA!!!!!!! (gasp) Sorry, but that parody was bleedin' drop-dead hilarious! The title alone is reason enough to snicker, but then there's that "I scrape 'em off the sidewalk" line. People seem to do really good with parodies of this song, but I'm in no way saying yours just like everyone else's...it's quite possibly the absolute best "I Wanna Be Sedated" parody on this site. If you don't have yourself or someone else record this, it's a crime against humanity! 5-5-6

Wow, thanks, Jonathan S.!! It's always great to hear a good word about an old parody!
