The Lyrics

A lot of you know that Eric Clapton had a little bit of a problem, his with drugs.
Not too many of you know that I had a problem myself ... of a different nature.
When the gurgl-ing sounds
all come from way deep down: METHANE.
It's a smell that won't please
like cows that cut the cheese: METHANE.
In an elegant scene
when you just want to be mean: METHANE.
Silent deadly- type
squeezed out with all your might: METHANE.

It will pass.
It's just gas
out your ass: METHANE.

When you're smelling like poo,
but you can't find the loo: METHANE.
It can clear out the room
and make a sonic boom: METHANE.


When it just slips right out,
but then it leaves no doubt: METHANE.
When you feel like you fart,
but there's a solid part: NOT METHANE.

Mick: This is a GAS! I score this CH4 (organic chemistry for 5-5-5) ;D

As a chemical engineer I always love the hydrocarbon parodies. Here's 555 grams of CH4.

Came here via the 'Random' feature, Mick. This parody stinks, but in a good way. It was on the nose, but in a good way.
