Everything Poops by Kevin Zelnio
Lyrics under the fold

chorus:
| Anything that eats has gotta take a shit
| I don’t see why we gotta make a big deal of it
| Some do it out in nature, some do it in holes
| everyone poops baby, that’s just they way it goes

Bugs poop in little dots, bunnies poop a lot
Squid just blast out some goo
Elephants got big ones, mice they got small ones
but little darling, yeah everyone got poo

[chorus]

rats poop in sewers, fish poop in the sea
critters poop because they eat lots of food
Think about it real hard, but don’t let up your guard
because monkeys like throw a little poo right on you

[Chorus]

Now listen folks, my story’s plain to see
our bodies get rid of that which we can’t use
if you eat lots of junk, your shit will be stunk
because darling baby girl, everyone’s gotta poo

[Chorus]

  1. Can only do so many verses Adam. Not gonna Bob Dylan this. But yes tubeworms poop too! If you count excreting ions across the body wall and plume. Its still waste!

      • Hence the lyric:
        “Now listen folks, my story’s plain to see
        our bodies get rid of that which we can’t use
        if you eat lots of junk, your shit will be stunk”

        in hindsight of course.

  2. This is a very timely song! Was watching Rubicon and the question came up there on do bears poop when hibernating? The answer was very unsatisfactory to me as the guy basically said bears had a special and unique digestive system that allowed for recycling wastes. However, bears are not the only hibernating animal out there. So I’ll broaden it up, how do animals in hibernation poop?

  3. Kevin, you are my hero. Also, clearly Science Online 2011 needs a “Songs of Science” session…

  4. Great song could use some politics in there.

    “Republicans Poop,Democrats Poop, even the President of the United States starts his day with a Pooooop”

    Then there’s some notion of Washington being filled with the stuff, hey I am not a writer but trying to get you a wider audience.
