repeat endlessly...

We have a little correction there. I think it goes something like this:
"I come from a land down under,
Where women blow and men chunder. (which means vomit, spew.)
Can you hear, can't you hear the chunder,
You'd better run, you'd better take cover."
The last line was a bit changed. I think it had something to do with sex. Or big feet. Something to do with big feet. Or maybe that's the next verse? Gah! This will be bothering me for ages!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that yes, there is a similar bit with chundering, but our version is a bit more rude. If only I could remember! Damn you, memory!


Isn't it "women glow"?

I was discussing this with my better half the other day... Maybe I'm wrong? I'll google the lyrics.

According to www.lyricsdomain.com

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said,

"Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

"I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Lying in a den in Bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me
Because I come from the land of plenty?"
And he said,

"Oh! Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

---I'm most impressed Australian women do not blow I can imagine the stereotype that would create... :?

Hey, I don't care what any search reveals, even of their own liner notes...

If I be "down under", and I be "plunderin", then the women better damn well be [i]flowin'[/i/....

When I drive to work in the morning to start at 6am, I listen to AM and there's a commercial at the moment which sings the song...

"Hello Mudder, Hello Fudder,
Here we are in Camp Grenarda"

This has been in my brain since 5:50am... it's now 8:30pm (ish) I'm starting to drink to try and get it out of my brain

@Women blow:
Yes, we knew it was that way. We just preferred to say it the other way, if you catch my drift.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

it's not really an earworm, but when I'm bored the theme song from Super Mario Brother's 3 World 1, lvl 1 is always in the background. Sometimes other songs get stuck, but the eventually leave......SMB3 is forever

I have had Saria's Song from Ocarina of Time stuck in my head since I got to work hours ago, and I have absolutely no idea how it came to be there.

Also, my little brother (who just joined the forum, and goes by the name btully) has hated me for the past week, because I got Journey to the Island from Jurassic Park stuck in his head. It was great. He was finally starting to get over it, then I called him while he was at school one day, and left it on his voicemail. After he'd gotten over that, he was watching Family Guy, and they played it on there too. The FSM definitely has a sense of humor.

Following an ill-advised resurrection of the GameBoy, I have had intermittent Tetris-tinnitus for about a month now. All together, now:

Da du du da, du du du-du-du-du dah,
Da du du da da daaa daaa
- Da du da du-du da da da
Du-du da du-du da da daaa daaa...

Well, since you have tetris music on the brain anyway, have you seen the YouTube video for Human Tetris? It's brilliant. Last time I saw it, I not only had the Tetris music stuck in my head, but it was their version :

I have had the Dambusters' March going through my mind for hours - full orchestral version, all parts.

If I had it on CD I couldn't listen to it better!

I haven't a clue how to get rid of it, or even why it's there - I haven't listened to a recording of it in months and it isn't commonly played anywhere... :?
