The Lyrics

Pouched mammals. I think they're kinda cool, thus a parody. Obviously. Enjoy!
Of all the crazy creature ki-i-inds
Well, I fi-i-ind mar-marsupials, oh-oh
Are recurring thoughts in my brai-ai-ain
Wait, that may seem weird, let me explai-ai-ain
Mar-marsupia-a-als, whoa-oh-oh

Oh, possums, bilbies and don't dare
Call the koala a "bea-ear"
Because they're not, get it right
Amazing beasts, of them you might have heard
Mar-marsupials, must spread the word, oh

With a pouch to hold their you-ou-oung
"Joeys" what they're called, so-o-on
Mar-marsupials, oh-oh
Ooh, pygmy, brushtail, honey or stri-i-iped
Possums, so many ki-i-inds
Mar-mar-marsupia-a-als, oh-oh-oh

Ah, I always love to read about
Which ones are endangered, how I can help ou-ou-out
The 'net or books, lots of info there
Anyone who says they're weird, well, they're a jerk
Mar-marsupials, love them, you heard, oh
M-mar-m-marsupia-a-als, oh-oh

Ah, love wallabie-ies, sweet as pie
Guess I'm an Australidelphia nerd
Mar-marsupials, I'm a total nerd, oh
M-mar-m-marsupia-a-als, I'm a complete nerd, oh
Mar-marsupia-a-als, an utter nerd, oh
M-mar-m-marsupia-a-als, oh-oh-oh, oh oh

I'll spread the word
Of what-what, what things I've learned, ooh-hoo (ah-ha-ha)
Since I'm a nerd
M-mar-m-marsupials (ah-ha-ha)
Ah, mar-marsupials (ah-ha-ha)
Mar-marsupials, super, y'all
Mar-marsupials (ah-ha-ha)

Things I have learned (ah-ha-ha)
Of things furred, oh (ah-ha-ha)
With pouches, word

Australidelphia is the superorder that covers all of the marsupials in Australasia and one species in South America. The rest are in Ameridelphia, which is just opossums, which is pronounced the same as possums despite being different species and on different continents and English is just a stupid language, I don't think that's a controversial statement, am I right?

The best parody EVER to appear on this site. Fantastic use of the title in the song. You could give Below Average Dave a run for his money!
