The Lyrics

I have always liked the history of the DuPont company, and I think that the little oval is kind of cute, so here is a song about the DuPont oval.
DuPont protects its oval with impunity
They call it the Ellipse
But it's just a little oval
And it's been used for over a century

DuPont, they made the napalm
They made a lot during the 'Nam
The oval was on every drum

It was designed by G.A. Wolf in 1902
The year of the first Duco paint
And now that they've entered the Fortune 500
They have a little red oval now

And it's used only by DuPont
And it's never been redesigned
And it's used only by DuPont
In keeping with trademark laws
And it's used only by DuPont
And it's a great corporate logo
It shall be DuPont

DuPont sells stainmaster carpet today
Sorona, Luxura and Antron
DuPont makes fibers, not carpets, the tags say
Mohawk makes the carpets, not DuPont
And napalm, they no longer make
The feds destroyed it all
The oval, it is timeless
While DuPont, it evolves on and on
(Chorus and fadeout)
(Note: I have no connection whatsoever with E.I. duPont de Nemours and Company of Wilmington, Delaware, and the same goes with Mohawk Carpet Mills, and I do not support any war, despite the mention of napalm)
