The Lyrics

Anyone that lived through the '60s probably remembers the cartoon series "The Herculoids" and a character named Gloop that was a protoplasmoid with an incomprehesible language. With tongue firmly in cheek, I present this version of IPASOY!
They can't understand you
half the time

Bshd buue BYot biteb bpth beyttns boor bgo
BI ’a’ly bnitni
Bi’ l bnaoNy bi’Int

You know they can’t stand it
Incomprehensible sounds
You need speech therapy
Protoplasmic utterances confound

They can't understand you
half the time

BI Bvoay Ble
Bo buIle bvyo
By bvloo beIu
Bo blIoh byaw boevnuy
Bndc be baAord b’Itn
Bto bwtd bfmae’ buIyo nn
Brnh bomIrw byut’ob isg

Learn to speak
They can't understand you
half the time
(Improve your speech)
