Greg sent me an e-mail with the subject, "when you feel like doing something sick" that contained these lyrics.

Yes, that's me singing. I was inspired to figure out that voice from an episode of Red Dwarf when Kryten was recalled and a replacement mechanoid was sent to blow him up.


I took a pot shot at the mayor
because my momma wouldn't change my diaper
it turned me into a sniper
now i'm facing the electric chair
ooo my momma didn't love me
now the state's gonna kill me
my momma didn't love me
now the state's gonna kill me
