The Lyrics

Darn it anyway, I forgot to include this final parody from "The Commercial Album". This is the last one, I swear to God...
SPAM (parody of "My Work Is So Behind"--track 26 of 'The Commercial Album')

We were roaming through the house
Looking for stuff to eat
The kids were hungry, looking dazed
They were picking at their teeth
And were kicking Uncle Pete
A neighbor came in suddenly
And asked me if I'd like
To try some potted Hormel meat
I guessed it would be fine
It sounded really fine
The family then started to smile
When I opened the tin
Spam's good when we eat in, eat in
Spam's good when we eat in

This last one was anti-climactic, but the whole batch together was great; I read them all. I'm sure if you sent it to the Residents, they'd get a kick out of it. I know I would. The Who had a very early album called "The Who Sell Out", where they plug products on the cover. (And sing about ones like "Odorono") Of course the bulk of their selling out has happened the last 20 years, where they are now raking in the bucks hawking products and TV shows.

On a dare from a fellow Residents message board member, I have forwarded this to their official website's "mouthpiece". I will report back with any results of this correspondence.
