Let's MST: Bad song lyrics and other stuff (but mostly bad songs)


Muskrat Love

Ah, the 70's. Considered by many to be the best decade for music. This song by Willis Alan Ramsey, later covered by America and Captain & Tennille, proves it wasn't.
Muskrat, muskrat candlelight

MIKE: Umm…what?

Doin' the town and doin' it right

In the evenin'

CROW: In the morning and afternoon they’re just busy, cruisin’ around on their muskrat Benz’s in the city.

It's pretty pleasin'

TOM: I think we’re getting into a whole weird area here, guys.

Muskrat Susie, Muskrat Sam

MIKE: Together they fight crime!

Do the jitterbug out in muskrat land

CROW: Muskrat Land! Disney’s least popular theme park!

And they shimmy

And Sammy's so skinny

TOM: He was thin enough to be anorexic!

And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed

Singin' and jingin' the jango

CROW: Did Bill Cosby write this?

Floatin' like the heavens above

It looks like muskrat love

MIKE: Well, guess I’d better call the exterminator.

Nibbling on bacon, chewin' on cheese

Sammy says to Susie

TOM [Sammy]: Look out for the steel trap!!

"Honey, would you please be my missus?"

And she say yes

With her kisses

And now he's ticklin' her fancy

MIKE: Should we be seeing this?


Rubbin' her toes

Muzzle to muzzle, now anything goes

As they wriggle, and Sue starts to giggle

TOM: Y’know, I now see the reason why the furry fandom is ostracized by the rest of the Internet.

And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed

Singin' and jingin' the jango

Floatin' like the heavens above

CROW: Wait, did they die? Why are they floating? What’s going on?

It looks like muskrat love

La da da da da ...

MIKE: That was surprisingly short.

TOM: What were people in the 70’s thinking?

The Captain & Tennille cover somehow got to number 4 on the Billboard charts. Yeah...


Oh dear lord suddenly this lousy song is so much more bearable now.
