The Lyrics

Chum fare: ova; the bane: roe.
Nay sup I.
There on land is a herd of
Lunch, with a bull nearby.

Chum fare, ova; the bane: roe
My plate's blue.
On it's bream and ewe, hare with cream,
Mealy stewed plum too.

Rumcake I'll nosh; a frosted star
That's baked up fare for cookie jar. Remind me
Where trouble dwells. In lemon pop,
A way to shove up kidney drops
Glycemically. [5 syllables, accent on 4th]

Chum fare: ova; the bane: roe.
Stewed bird nigh.
Burps fly. Overt, my drain blow.
Sty, then--so hie and lie.

I like it, even though gibberish like mine. :D 5's

I love parodies that rhyme so ludicrously closely on a syllable-by-syllable basis to the original song!

Bum hair... where'd my Rogaine go?
, Once, 'Wade' pro-lifers' bane: 'Roe'
Au pairs often complain, no?

Oh yeah, this comment is supposed to be about you, right... really good, man.

Yukkster: See "Rogaine" by Lotus Bass, one of the Top 10 Amiright parodies ever.

With "ova" and "roe" together and written by John, I was expecting something much more controversial, heh heh. Nice job.
