There’s an obscure little song in the SCUNA songbook called Now Oh Now, and we were practicing it one time when this modified version came to me. Basso Ergo Drool.
Now, oh fuck I needs must fart
Farting for on beans I dined
Farting is an ancient art,
Unlike others much maligned.
Since I ate I must expell
Gas that forms when I digest.
Please forgive the nasty smell —
Beans from Woolworths aren’t the best.
Flatulence will drive you hence,
Loud your curses rent the air
Take, I pray you, no offense;
Wrath from you I could not bear!
