The Lyrics

Ooh, there's half a rind!
Delicious treats I find.
There's nuts and chutney and what was a sub once.
Madly chomped tacos,
Melons damaged with drool,
Nougat, partly gnawed bone,
A trout--some of it.

Now some say that I'm no health freak,
And some say the vittles I seek
Are offal. Still I sup
Until I am filled up.
Lamb that's been shared, enjoyed,
I'll take it home.

I found a dead skink,
Rancid beneath my sink.
I started noshing neck
Then worked my way down.

Why go to the store
When you can find a cor-
nucopia in what
Would be landfill bound?

Some say the smelly wealth I seek
Ain't fit for a carnival geek;
It's awful. Still I sup
Until I am filled up.
Spam, a junked pair o' koi--
Oh, yum, yum, yum!

Gnashing on corn mold
I fress till it's all gone.

Some say the smelly wealth I seek
Such as a rank yellowing leek
Is craw-spill. Still I sup
Until I am filled up.
Ham, junk-food fare enjoyed. . .
A garbstronome.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL My favorite John Barry parody to date. . .Basket Case is my favorite song of all time, and I'm glad to have introduced it to you, everyone knows Green Day for their later work, but this was one of the classics they did back when they were actually punk. . .and you managed a hilarious parody, well I think disgusting can be funny anyway--and you made it happen. . ."Gnashing on corn mold I fress till it's all gone." . . .Classic

Glad I had already had dinner... DK Green Day at all (go 60s!), but TT's favorite part was about enjoying the lamb, of course. 555

Normally, I would frown on a parody like this, but yours didn't cross the line from "kinda gross" to "vulgar", so I did like. 545 Hey, the security code is B8B--perhaps that stands for "Barry ate Bananas???"
