"Chemical Warfare" as written by Eric Reed Boucher, Raymond John Pepperelle, Geoffrey Lyall and Darren Henley....
Down at the arsenal they keep the nerve gasses
Guarded day and night by caged white rabbits
Been sitting there for years
I'm gonna have at it
I cut through the fence, run right in and grab it
Go crazy crazy crazy crazy:

Now I got my own mustard gas in my pocket
Climb on a tree on a branch and drop it
On a country club full of Saturday golfers
So I can watch them die chokin' shakin'in convulsions
Go crazy crazy crazy crazy
Crazy crazy crazy crazy:

Chemical Warfare Chemical Warfare
Chemical Warfare Warfare Warfare

Panic in the air
See the headless chickens runnin'
Golf carts head on crashin'
Crackin' heads wide open
Scratch the grass, mister, you can't breath
And roll and writhe in a sandtrap
Starting to heave
Claw those clubs, lemme see you seethe
Crazy Crazy Crazy Crazy Crazy Crazy

Chemical Warfare Chemical Warfare
Chemical Warfare Warfare Warfare

Yellow air
Yellow clouds
Blowin' down down down the fairway
Sensitive to the touch
Mowin' down the putting green
Heading straight for the big clubhouse
Where the stuffed country club
Effervescent ladies, so carefree
Relax, pose by the pool
Limber limp with a dry martini

    General CommentGreat song! The politicians and aristocrats in 'high society' are happy to give the order to condemn hundreds/thousands of people in foreign lands to their deaths with horrific chemical and biological weapons. Good ol' Jello fantasises about giving them a taste of their own medicine, down in their natural habitat.

    General CommentI think it's more about how it's way too easy to get weapons.

    General CommentUpon first hearing, one might think this song is sick and perverted, like "forest fire" - makes for a nice anti yuppie double feature...

    but after some time, or if you're more clever than me (pfft), instantly, you can appreciate it as a satirical dark fantasy never to be fulfilled but to play loudly on your car radio when driving by the local golf club. the power of words!

    General CommentThere is a golf course adjacent to a desolate trail me and my friends go to hike and smoke pot, and the golfers there always launch golf balls at us. I even saw them launching golf balls at deer once. Assholes.

    I feel this song. xD

    Yeah, it's about nerve-gassing golfers.

    General CommentI love the little skit in the middle. This song is great for alienating people just a little bit, but not exactly scaring them away. Works for me, anyway.
