I actually wrote this last year when the Blue Bell scare happened. I just never recorded it. Well, Blue Bell...has gotta be going out of business, right? This is now an old preemptive jingle somehow.

I went out to get Blue Bell ice cream
and I chose Krazy Kookie Dough
and I know Mr Tony hates it
He says schmutz is the wrong way to go
When I got home that night
Something wasn’t right
What is this feeling?
What is this plight?

I got Listeria, it’s a bacteria
Oh can you feel that? My colon’s screaming
Get to a bathroom fast, the ice cream’s coming back
up and I’m thinking, I’ll soon be weeping
My body’s purging this, out every orafice
Oh god
Listeria is everywhere

Yep, perfect song for this. I just saw that last year I wrote this topic down in my notebook and linked it to the Rihanna song Disturbia - but this is a better fit. I'm not glad people might get sick again, but I AM glad you were able to get this out again and record it. The back catalog of jingle deep cuts continues to live on.

This an absolutely perfect song choice! The way you incorporated the original lyrics is fantastic! I'm glad you went back and finished this :)
