The Lyrics

Rum they told me
Was good for my tum
And so I drank all night
Was yummy, yum yum
But now I don't feel right
Feel numby, numb numb
And I just lost the fight
The food in my tum
Decided to run
Over my tongue
So now I think that
Was dummy, dumb dumb
Drinking that rum

Perhaps maybe
I won't have that rum
It seems to affect you
When I'm drinking rum
You start to grow some wings
When I've had me some
A sweet angelic thing
From Heaven you've come
That's where you're from
When I've had some rum

Shall I pour for you
More of my rum
On my tongue

Liver's spotted
From drinking this rum
My talk can't speech like mine
When I'm on the rum
My brain is numb and dim
When toxin'd with rum
I cease my quest for gin
When greeted with rum
Sometimes my gum
Colors the rum

Earned a bile degree
From justing drink rum
Drink justing rum

Drinking just rum

Yaarr, I'll keel-haul the scurvy maggot who gave you a 423. No one gives bad marks to rum!

I know someone who's drinking tonight ;) This 'traditional' song is one I am very familiar with, so I could rate this one without going on a hunt for TOS, good job

Thanks BADave. I do tend to write parodies against partially obscure stuff, but that's not entirely a bad thing. :-)
