The Lyrics

I've been walkin' these streets so long,
Spritzin' up, makin' pong.
I've blown every snack I've ingested:
Fries, dogs, hogs, cod, whey.
I'm hurlin' up game from the flame,
Shaved ice, wine, all washed away
As they go down the drain.

There's been a lot o' conch that's risin'
Up my throat, the chunks comprisin'
Brunch, pies, goobers, groats, hare: delights of gastronomy.

I'm a Rhine-stoned cowboy,
'bibin', soused, surly coarse,
Prone to barf, dangle out and go.
I'm a Rhine-stoned cowboy. . .
Ingest carp and retch it
Then sleep with every 'ho' I know. . .
Can't boff 'er--stewed, like me, is my bone.

Well, the bystanders mind the rain
That issues past my facial plane,
Cascades, cakes on their clothing's domain,
Arrayed in an odd way.
And they scream: "This stinks, so do you!"
'cause my Subway hoagie's
Now a dollop stuck on a shined shoe.
And there's a lot of choler risin',
Then some guy my collar's prising,
But just then it blows: detritus of gastronomy.

I'm a Rhined, thrown-chow boy. . .
Primed, his mouth, for discourse;
Now my barf dangles down his throat.
He's a Rhine-choked chow boy. . .
Ingests indirectly
What I'd eaten, and I emote:
"Hey, 'cow' boy, chew my cud!" I intone.

I am particularly fond of this brilliant, chunky-style parody... you really know how to support a running, er, 'gag'.

"Well, you’re wine-owned now, boy,
tho’ the hard stuff’s better.
'Rummies' cheap ol’ wine’ll leave alone,
scoffers from an old topers’ zone. ..."

"Now, it's the wrong day to tipple Ripple ..."

"Thunderbird suits an old bum like me
just the very thing for the lush I be ..."

5 points apiece for three kneejerk ideas your tune instantly triggers, even tho' I'm unlikely to get 'round to following up a one of'em. :-)

If you bring this up once more you will force me to vote on it and thanks for stealing my comment on Alvin's Supertranp song today. I'm glad my dinner has been down for over an hour before I read this. Yuck. So pukey.

But who am I to point fingers down peoples throats - I once wrote a Beatles Parody "Help" and called it "Ralph" Throw up the lines you think I used. Ralph parodies are fun. Good job on this JB.
