The Lyrics

Ain't never had one yet, but I've heard they can cork you good. Hence the subject matter, and what happens when they're gone to stay.
One sweaty day, it went away,
It's gone and left me, gone to stay,
It's finally gone, and I won't worry,
I'm sitting on top of a hole.

I tore open that wrapper, glommed that chow,
it got inside me, clogged me up somehow,
But now it's gone, and I'm not sorry,
'Cause I'm setting on top of a hole.

Going to toss those things, on Flea-bay,
Paid too much, tasted like rotten clay,
Never eat another one,
'Cause they try to stay.
But now it's gone, and I won't worry,
I'm shitting on top of a hole.

Meals Rarely Edible. Meals Rejected by Ethiopians. The old Turkey with Gravy wasn't too bad, but the rest would cause a starving dog to back off in disgust. Now they call them Humanitarian Rations and make them in Kosher, Halvah, and Hindu varieties depending upon the dietary habits of refugees. Survivalists actually pay good money for them

From what I heard, MREs have no exit strategy.
