The Lyrics

The OS is a revisionist version of the Frankie Yanovic classic. Can be heard at
There’s leavening in the beer--
That’s why the foam is here.
And don’t you think that it’s queer
That bread don’t give head as does the beer?

There leavening in the wine--
That is why it tastes so fine.
I drink it till I’m nearly blind
And the keys to my house I can’t find.

There’s leavening when we fear--
Adrenaline it’s clear
Will prompt us to clear right out of here,
Hie to a nearby bar, buy a beer.

There’s seven upended mugs
In front of me; I’ve glugged
’em down, chased with bourbon slugs. . .
A girl slugs me ’cause I tugged her jugs.

I’s leavened from thoughts of sex. . .
Started to inflect.
Her muscular punch made me deflect--
My breast caress’d caused her to vex.

No leavening at Passo’er--
Flat bread is such a bore.
I’ll dash flat-out to the store
For bread, sex, beer and secs: ekht* wine to pour.

*real, genuine

There's a whole lot of leavening in your parody, too! Rising with 3 sets of 5's!

3 (sets of 5) cheers for leavening - PS second time recently that I've never even heard of the artist let alone the OS

I'm thinking of doing a version of Major General & I've just seen a Youtube vid of a bloke doing it in what looks like either an audition or a self promo vid (brilliant performance & facial expressions). I've noticed that the Heliogabalus line (don't know if any others - thought I'd ask this brfore I really look into it) has 17 instead of the usual 16. I've read numerous versions on this site & they all have 16's the whole way through (except for one that dropped his down to 15 for that line!). I watched another vid from the actual stage version & he sings it as 17 as well. At first I thought there might be an odd way of pronouncing it such as a Y for the IO but that doesn't seem to be the case. Is there something that I'm missing or do you all use straight 16's because it flows better?

biblical overtones with the bread, the wine and the jugs

But John, leavened bread *does* rise! .... Unexpected, clever twist ending... never saw it coming.

When your bread has no head
'Cause no yeast at the feast
