A story as old as time....

Krongu Green Slime

Before the land before time
There was a time before land
When the world was just slime
And Krongu was the brand

Yes Krongu green sludge
Was the popular item
There might have been better sludges
But no one ever tried 'em

Bought and sold by the platter
Green slime by Krongu
It was the most popular matter
It was the most popular hue

It was from sea to sea
It was from dawn to dark
It had thoroughly
Cornered all of the market

All other colors were in absentia
Back in BC, ten zillion
There was no puce or magenta
Or chartruce or cyrillian

No red, yellow or blue
Well, to put it properly
There was green slime by Krongu
It was a total monopoly

If you'd bought stock in there, oh
For a while it would have skyrocketed
It would have been mucho dinero
That you would have to stood to have pocketed

But if you missed out on that ship
Then you have my sympathies, kid
Cause Krongu's value dipped
As those slimy seas did

And land started to pop up
In dribs and drabs at a time
And creatures started to hop up
From the oceans of slime

Krongu's grip started slipping
With this slew of innovations
There was now competition
From some new corporations

There were so many styles
And it all seemed so nice
These millions of aisles
Of life's merchandise

Some tiny, some giant
Some could chirp, some could buzz
Rebellious or compliant
With scales, feathers or fuzz

Some were stupid as turnips
Some were lowly as corrals
Some had high-minded concepts
Dreams and ideas and morals

Some were fanged, some were toothless
Some were sweet, some were salty
They were popular but useless
They were pretty but faulty

Yes I guess I got fleeced
I got bated and hooked
By each dream and each beast
That didn't work as good as it looked

Cause each one crapped out and broke
Built to last, forget it
Get a refund, that's a joke
You can't even exchange for store credit

Someone do some mock raking
An exposť, a news tip off
This whole store's a heartbreaking
Fraudulent rip off

Forget friends, family
Dreams, hearts, bees, dogs, snakes
Forget you, forget me
It's just cheap stuff that breaks

And in the land after time
And the time after land
They'll just roll out the slime
In the most trusted brand

When push comes to shove it'll be Krongu
No dismissals, no disbarments
No more tears, no more love, no more grue (?)
Of disposable garments (?)

Cause before the land before time
There was a time before land
When the world was just slime
And Krongu was the brand

Yes Krongu green sludge
Was the popular item
There might have been better sludges
But no one ever tried 'em.
