Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
I started to choke
Which started my old girl sighing
'Cos she didn't see
That I'd inhaled a pea, oh no

Eyes started to cry
Before them my whole life passing
Oh, such sad buffetry
To evoke tragedy

"Heim-lich!" I advised
(Waving my hands, bulging my eyes)
And I started to dread
Flirting widespread with thoughts I'd drop dead

If I untimely died
Wife start up a lawsuit revving?
Oh a lawyerly scene
Diner bankrupt will be

This sudden demise
Never did my psychic surmise
Foresaw not my death knell
Sure hope my spouse will sue her as well

'Til I finally died
Off shuffled the mortal coil-y
Oh, if I'd chosen beans
Wouldn't choke on a pea...oh no

Sad to croak legume-y...oh...

I liked it, but Alex Rodriguez won't. This is after October 2004, so you should get a few fives from New England.
