The Lyrics

Don't get me wrong. I absolutely hate coriander (or cilantro for the American am-i-righters). I have the gene allele which makes this stuff (and any food which has been infested by it) to taste like soap.
I went to diner and ordered a tasty burrito
Aroma of Mexican food tickled my nose
There came my order -
I chewed it and taste of the soap in my mouth, yes, arose

My, my, my cilantro!
Why why why, cilantro!
I can see that herb sure is no good for me
It made my burrito to taste like soap, yes indeed!

I went to Thai restaurant and had me some rice and chicken:
The same taste of soap was so imminent it made me puke
Oh, coriander -
The bane of South Asian cuisine! My stomach it shook -

My, my, my cilantro!
Why why why, cilantro!
It spoiled my meal, that herb that's a true devil's deal
It turned up my stomach and I felt I'd get killed now for real!

(trumpet solo)

Oh, please, dear EU!
Legalize pot and outlaw the cilantro, that's deal!

My, my, my cilantro!
Why why why, cilantro!
It spoiled my meal, that herb that's a true devil's deal
It turned up my stomach and I felt I'd get killed now for real!
It turned up my stomach and I felt I'd get killed now for real!

I happen to enjoy cilantro - and good parodies - which this is.

I live in California, so obviously cilantro is everywhere to eat and buy. I like cilantro. Eat at El Pollo Loco a lot! 555!

as with John & Rob I too like cilantro I even love the smell of it it smells so clean (I suppose soap is a fair comparison in that regard) I also LOVE this OS! truly an example of how good music could be in the past as opposed to garbage they dare to call music today! 455
