Album: Mandatory Fun (2014)
  • I never seem to finish all my food
    So I always gets doggy bag from the waiter
    So I just keep what's still unchewed
    And I take it home, save it for later

    But then I deal with fungal rot, bacterial formation
    Microbes, enzymes, mould and oxidation
    I don't care, I've got a secret trick up my sleeve
    I never bother with baggies, glass jars, tupperware containers
    Plastic cling wrap, really a no-brainer
    I just like to keep all my flavours sealed in tight

    With aluminum foil (foil)
    Never settle for less
    That kind of wrap is just the best
    To keep your sandwich nice and fresh
    Stick it in your cooler (cooler)
    Eat it when you're ready
    But maybe you'll choose (you'll choose, you'll choose, you'll choose)
    A refreshing herbal tea

    Mmm, lovely!

    Oh, by the way, I've cracked the code
    I've figured out these shadow organizations
    And the Illuminati know
    That they're finally primed for world domination

    And soon you've got black helicopters comin' cross the border
    Puppet masters for the New World Order
    Be aware: there's always someone that's watching you
    And still the government won't admit they faked the whole moon landing
    Thought control rays, psychotronic scanning
    Don't mind that, I'm protected cause I made this hat

    From aluminum foil (foil)
    Wear a hat that's foil lined
    In case an alien's inclined
    To probe your butt or read your mind
    Looks a bit peculiar ('culiar)
    Seems a little crazy
    But someday I'll prove (I'll prove, I'll prove, I'll prove)
    There's a big conspiracy Writer/s: Alfred Matthew Yankovic, Ella Marija Lani Yelich O'Connor, Joel Little

  • Edge from Undisclosed - Top SecretHis parodies are top notch and unmatched. However, I truly wonder if there’s a hidden message within this in some way shape or form. Maybe it was his way of calling out who we needed to in the elite world
  • Shandroise De Laeken from Davao City, PhilippinesThis song is soooo funny!!! a-hahahahaha!! Weird Al is a genius!!
