The Lyrics

When on peanuts I’ve snacked indigestion’s attacked and I’ve gusted,
Oh, the pain that has wracked my poor innards, gas-packed, ’til I gusted!
Folks’ve said I lack tact, but relief’s what I’ve lacked
’til with muscles unslacked my intestinal tract
has like gunfire ack-acked and with fetid impact, I have gusted.

Tho’ know they’ll “reprise,” I still eat goober peas and I’ve gusted
at socials and teas, then said “Pardon me, please, for I’ve gusted.”
But with nostrils a-squeeze, making comments like these --
“Alright, who cut the cheese?” “Crack the window, and please,
let us let out a breeze!” -- people nastily tease when I’ve gusted.

I’ve cleared many a room when a loud bowel boom says I’ve gusted
and a putrid perfume has eyes brimming with rheum ’cause I’ve gusted.
Still I’ll always consume that Fabaceaeous legume
tho’ it’s spelt social doom: when I’m near folks presume
there’s a flatus a-loom and they flee with a vroom! e’re I’ve gusted.

Whew, what a smell!
Well, what the hell?
I say “Farewell!”
(fading)
© Stan Hall .... and speaking of matters methane, I'm reminded of Gillette Burgess's doggerrelly-deprecated magenta mooer. Perhaps in the current context Mr. B. would rhyme thusly: I've never seen a puple poot / And hope I’ll never sight one / But you can wager all your loot / I’d sooner see than light one. / :-)

Let not the subject matter overshadow the excellent rhyming and pacing on this one. Very well done.

That one "blew me away", Stan. Great job of parodying one of brother Ray's greatest hits. All 5s.

555 for bringing back Ray Charles ! His music does remind me of many happy times in the ~ Kamelot Years ~

What could I add that hasn't already been aired? ... only something you'd probably rather I not air :) ... esp. echo Agri and AF. Very poopular topic here at AIR (smell the irony in the acronym); done a few myself (parodies, that is, not... well, OK, maybe a few), but so long as we're trading plugs (I guess we'll get through each other's catalog one plug at a time), how 'bout Brother Ray on a different topic, one closer to my "heart"? http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/eddyarnoldraycharles0.shtml

I got a Cowboy, way over town, that's good to me ! Oh yeah! . . He give me honey, both day & night. He's my Drover; I hold him tight. I got a Cowboy, way over town that's good to me . . .
