(Please Don't Play) That Badger Song

There's a song about badgers that's so brilliant (and so phenomenally popular) that the Zong crew set out to write one just like it. The results, alas, were horrible. But my grandmother told me, "If you can't do something constructive, you can at least sit around and complain." In that spirit, we present our anti-badger song.

written by Paul Nordquist + performed by Paul Nordquist (vocals) and the Zongo Session Players

Please don't play that badger song
It's been running all day long
I'll complain
And go insane
If people start to sing along
Please don't start to sing along

Please don't click that badger link
It destroys your will to think
Look -- it features
Dancing creatures
Oh my god I need a drink
Now I really need a drink

When I was a tiny lad
Living on the mushroom farm
Badgers killed my mom and dad
And nearly chewed off my right arm
I don't mean to sound dramatic
But everytime I hear that music
It gets me all post-traumatic
My heart pounds! I nearly lose it

Please don't load that badger site
Stop the beat before they bite
Now the thread
Is in my head
I'm hearing it all day and night
I'm hearing it all day and night

Now I hate to go to work
There's not a day that's badger-free
Can't escape the thoughtless jerk
Who's blaring it on his PC
Sign this now before we go deaf
My petition to the managers
As Raoul says in UHF
"We don't need no stinkin' badgers!"

Please don't play that badger song
It's been running all day long
I'll complain
And go insane
If people start to sing along
Please don't start to sing along

Please don't load that badger site
Stop the beat before they bite
This badger fad
Will drive me mad
I'm hearing it all day and night
I'm hearing it all day and night
