The Lyrics

How Homer's happy day becomes a crappy one. :-)
Friday morning, early hour,
Homer’s anxious to devour
post-Thanksgiving doggy bag
lurking there in his Maytag

Leftovers, Homer’d rate’em
higher than when he ate’em
first at yesterday’s meal,
and he’ll down’em with zeal.

Marge warns Homer don’t pig out
but all that “D’oh” boy can dig out
on plate he fits
for an eatin’ blitz.

Turkey, veggies, ’taters, stuff-
in’ – Homer’s set, he takes a Duff
in both his mitts
for an eatin’ blitz.

Everything he sees just looks so yummy
but his eyes are bigger than his tummy – What a dummy!

Marge is right—before too long
he’s turning white, knows something’s wrong
where food now sits …
plumbing’s on the fritz!

[lengthy musical break]

Homer’s pipes are faulty food conduits—
intake does its job but drain won’t do its. (Can’t poop it!)

Ex●Lax® Homer’s swallowed soon
will leave him hollowed like a prune
would do ’cause it’s
given him the sh*ts.

I think I saw that episode; if not, it should be one. Nicely written, Stan.

"I am so smart, I am so smart, s-m-r-t....I mean s-m-A-r-t" - Homer Simpson

Fortunately for us, Stan really *is* smart! :D

Very creative parody! Yep, I could imagine that'd be Homer responsible for this plumbing! Yep, Homer is not very smart. That's why he makes fun of Lisa all the time. The plumbing on the fritz would be more and more likely happening to Peter Griffin as well since he's more obese than Homer! 555 for plumbing services! Oh, better yet, you may need to hire a Hazmat team!

I sang along in my head but couldn't help doing each end part in the style of Peter Boyle from Young Frankenstein

Thanks all for the comments and votes.

Christie M - you're right re hazmats ... I don't think I'd want to be around as Homer's relief takes effect.

Andy P - Of course ... Monster F. rules. You do realize, tho', that _he_ was doing that bit in the style of another Frankie, Valli by name. :-)
