Tube (Try It With Music)

Play this song by Phish and read along...

The front lobe crashed and nothing breathed,
It made me wonder,
Does Terri sleep on linen-ed mattress,
Does Jeb Bush know his blunder?,
Thumpers preach in my left ear,
Cochran's gone but she's still here,
Ssshhh, I kinda think Terri just said "Glurgh",
Nah, she's only kept alive by science,
The Bible couldn't help,
By science, the Bible couldn't help.

Paranoid the doctor ran,
Fleeing the Christian protestation,
Kids bring water,
Prayer books and crucifixes,
Spewing forth their fervor,
They purposely waited 'til courts were done,
To knock on the hospice door,
Accusing Mike of cutting off their fun,
"Blagh surr ifka blor",
Huh? "Blagh surr ifka blor"

All the tubes were all inside,
Mouth was wide agape,
To put forth Congressional testimony,
To overrule the courts,
For a vegetable, in Florida,
Now the feeding is all done,
There's no pain in this lobotomy,
The time to help has passed,
There's no Jesus in the hosptital,
Are there no more brain cells left?

What's that kid with water doing here?
How's that video for some proof?
She overdid the diet there,
For a chance to shed some pounds,
Terri Schaivo is a pawn,
Again, again, again,
It's so stupendous, feeding through this tube,
So stupendous, feeding through this tube.

That is by far the mightiest finest lampoonin' I've ever read and sang along to.

If this were the late 1980s you could probably record that and send it in to the Z-Morning Zoo and listen to them play it every morning for the next five weeks.

Bravo, Donnie Fiedler, bravo!

How could you do that to such a badass song?

If I ever get permanently stuck with the association of "Tube" and this worthless bag of dead brain, I'll never forgive you Don Fiedler.
