The Lyrics

Ladies and gentleman
This is Yellow Number Five

One, two, three, lake five
It's really not that color, so beware of the lie
In the mini mart around the corner
My friends complained they were parched
But I really don't wanna
Get them sumtin that I think is bad.
I'll say my piece 'fore they get what they grab
It's even in Beer 'n Brat Mustard and Minute Made
Made with real lemons, too
But it's still not the same.
So what can I do
You're supposed to drink it during sports?
This evil substance should be poured
Down the drain, it's all good
Let me butt in and waive the red flag

A little sip of Mountain Dew, in my life
A little sip of Powerade, lemon lime
A little sip of Koolaid's all I'll drink
A little sip of Crystal Light, down the sink.
The last little ingredient on the list
Might have been the one that you're bound to miss.
A little Gatorade, and here we go
A heavy dose of this dye makes my sperm count low.

Yellow Number Five

Turn the cap around
Drink it all down
Shake it well and take it to town
At least it isn't brown.
Take a good look
Cock an eyebrow too
Consider hard
What it does to you.
Check the color once
Check your label twice
And if you want to have kids
Then it's good to be wise.


Warning, the warning!
Yellow Number Five
Ha, ha, ha


If I were you
I wouldn't drink that stuff, ewe...
Cuz you can't trust
What it does inside
You and me'll stay fertile a long time

Pacing was off in many of the lines and I'm not quite certain about the subject matter. Some artificial colouring causing impotence? Eh? Sorry, but after reading's masterpiece I grade this: 3-4-3

I was playing off the false belief. I think it was either an urban legend or it was believed then overturned...I don't know...I was inspired.
