1999: COKE SAYS YOU'RE CRAZY!

Now about all of those rumors From European consumers
Who imagine our Coke made them sick
We hired men with diplomas
Rhymes with astrocytomas!
They're impartial, who else would we pick?

They've poured over the problem since yesterday
So we can announce what the EXPERTS say:
It's all in your head
After all, you're not dead
Its a lowdown dirty trick And you only think you're sick!

Its a "sociogenic pathology" (they actually said that!)
Since Coke is paying we agree
That hydrogen sulfide with fungicide
And chlorocresol on the outside
With aspartame is so delicious
And of course it's really nutritious!

Don't imagine that we'll tell you
Of the poisons that we sell you
Formaldehyde and formic acid
Forest Lawn will be so placid

Yours is not to reason why
Yours is just to buy and die
We really care for you a bunch
Now you've made me miss my lunch!
And our stock's not doing well
Over just a little smell
You're just a Belgium consumer, Honey
So get back in line and spend your money!
