Thread Name: Worst pop song ever!
Subject: RE: Worst pop song ever!
Pseudolus/Frank, I went looking for lyrics (didn't find 'em) and found a sound clip by The Bouys.(sp?) I remember watching an interview with the guy who wrote it, and he claimed it was a mule. Maybe he was getting too much flak for a cannibal song. (Damn - what did he do with the leftover bits?)

Both "Yummy Yummy" and "Chewy Chewy" were 1910 Fruitgum Co hits. They were pretty bad songs (gave rise to the term "bubble-gum rock" though.) The songs got me some free popcorn during a theater showing of "Night of the Living Dead." Apparently my friend's stomach couldn't handle both the movie and me singing those songs and giggling. (I was about 14. The lyrics went "Yummy yummy yummy, I've got mom in my tummy...")
