The Lyrics

A greenish-yellow hue
that’s opaline.
I drop some ice water into
it…then eyein’
it while I’m dryin’.

You know, I love absinthe;
I’m drinkin’ it down.
As if on a bad plinth
I feel I’m standing, head spinning ’round.
And then I fell onto
a porcupine,
with tines.

Some went through
a chic shoe
that was new.
Got a few
in down south.
The nappy hair
cannot protect me…
out from my mouth
More like a bellow: “Oooo!
Extraction time!!”

Only YOU JAB can do absinthe so well here! When I first read your parodies in 2011, I saw absinthe and said to myself, WTF??? 555 Mr. Wordsmith!
