The Lyrics

Fe fe fi fi fo fo fum
I smell smoke in the crematorium

Char 'em Brown, Char 'em Brown
Turn 'em down, Then turn 'em round
He's gonna get hot, Just turn 'em to debris
(Why's every body bag a stickin' to me)

That limb's gonna seize I know that's grim
The oven starts to even out that wrinkled skin

Char 'em Brown, Char 'em Brown
Turn 'em down, Then turn 'em round
He's gonna get hot, Just turn 'em to debris
(Why's every body bag a stickin' to me)

First step is load 'em in the stall
Next step is start a fire ball
Last step just scrap 'em off the wall
Guess who? (Ash stew?) That's you!

Now just let the ash room cool real slow
And post the obit on the radio

Char 'em Brown, Char 'em Brown
Turn 'em down, Then turn 'em round
He's gonna get hot, Just turn 'em to debris
(Why's every body bag a stickin' to me)

I know it's pretty grim, but none of us are gettin' off this planet alive. I wrestled with posting this but it was just how well the subject fit the pace of this song. I just couldn't resist posting it. Just look at it as art.

Don't they turn black when you char 'em?

And, art it is!

Yeah, but I couldn't pace and rhyme it right with black. Just call it poetic license.

Art or not, this had all the good taste of the guys who called up radio stations the day after Freddie Mercury died and requested "Another One Bites the Dust." There are ways of using death as a humorous subject. This was not one of them. This one was just...well, there's no other way to say it: It's dead. And we are not grateful, dude. (See? It's possible.)

Really? People called up the radio staion and asked for that song? That's a hoot!!! ROFL - who's Freddie Mercury? er, I mean who was... Where do you come up with this stuff? You are hilarious! and grateful dude - What a play on words. You should go on Jay Leno. It's that ADHD thing that helps with the humor, huh. :D
