Liner Notes: 

In addition to being an accomplished and world-renowned singer-songwriter, I also love to teach the little ones. This is a recent session we had and while we joke around a little you can certainly see that they have a deep and abiding respect for me as their teacher!

Lyrics: 

RAY D. OPOSSUM: OK children listen up! We're gonna do our new song for the nice people.
OPOSSUM KIDS: boooooooo! screw them! they suck!
R: Stop that!
K: you suck! boooooooo!
R: HEY! C'mon. Just like we practiced. I'll do the verses and you guys do the chorus.
K: I'll do your mama! bite me! ha ha ha!

I ate a frog for breakfast
A bowl of ticks for lunch
if you leave your garbage outside
I'll crawl in and eat a bunch

Cause......
opossums eating garbage
is like rabbits eating daisies
Monkeys eating bananas
Or dingos eating your babies
We love to eat your garbage
We'll munch upon your trash
And when we're done
we'll poop upon
Your beautiful bluegrass

R: All right, that was pretty good! You remembered the whole chorus!
K: I remember your mama!
R: Oh stop that!
K: that's what she said. ha ha ha! that IS what she said! ha ha ha!
R: OK verse 2 let's go!

I ate a mouse for dinner
Some bugs for midnight snack (eeww)
And if you hear some morning noise
It's me I am out back (farting)

Cause......
opossums eating garbage
is like rabbits eating daisies
Monkeys eating bananas
Or dingos eating your babies
We love to eat your garbage
We'll munch upon your trash
And when we're done
we'll poop upon
Your beautiful bluegrass

R: Very nice! Now let's do the bridge and the final chorus.
K: You're a bridge.
R: That makes no sense.
K: You make no sense. This song makes no sense. ha ha ha!
R: SHUT UP! Let's do this!

Cows love eating grass
Beavers love wood (hahaha)
Polar bears love Eskimos
'cause they taste so damn good (just like chicken)

Cause......
opossums eating garbage
is like rabbits eating daisies
Monkeys eating bananas
Or dingos eating your babies
We love to eat your garbage
We'll munch upon your trash
And when we're done
we'll poop upon
Your beautiful bluegrass

And when we're done
we'll poop upon
Your beautiful bluegrass

And when we're done
we'll poop on you
and you can kiss our ass

R: OMG that's NOT what we practiced!
K: practice this!
K: yeah, practice this!
K: ha ha ha!
R: Class dismissed!

Fun song and I love the dialogue parts. I don't have kids but if I did I'm sure they'd love it too.

any song with farts and poop should be required listening for youngsters. i have to play this for my five year old daughter. she loves animals almost as much as she love farts. even i loved this song. high hilarity to the max!

Oh and a antipodean reference to those pesky dingos, i will play it to your cousins over here. Made me chuckle again!

"Or dingos eating babies" DEAD!!! LOL!! Those children are delightful.

Pure vaudeville. Randy Newman better watch out. And as Captain America once said, "I got that reference."

The author Jeff Vandermeer lives in Tallahassee and has trail cams set up on his property. Some of your relatives regularly make an appearance. They have also started leaving him letters, but that's his story, not mine...

Gosh, those beaver jokes never get old, do they?
Nice work here.

Jeez some of those possum littles sound like my students in chorus. Maybe I AM a marsupial. This is highly amusing, but also a solidly constructed song with a good delivery.

I'm reminded of Dave Seville and the Chipmunks. Excellent production and your little group of singers are adorable and odoriferous. But then again, I've never known farts to NOT smell! Wink

Ah, a song to pass down to the next generations. So well done!
