Lyrics to “Old Bay” by Jim Duke

After my interview with Jim Duke last week, he was kind enough to play us a little tune. Here are the lyrics, for those who’d like to sing along 🙂

OLD BAY

    by an old salt

HEY HEY; OLD BAY;

CAN YOU REALLY KEEP ARTHRITIS AWAY?

THE SPICES THAT YOU USE ; CAN CURB ALL MY COX’2S

GOOD OLE BOYS, WE CAN REJOICE, IN GOOD OLD BAY.

 

THE FIRST THING THAT YOU NEED,

IS SOME SALTED CEL’RY SEED.

THEN THE MUSTARD`S CURCUMIN

WITH RED PEPPER’S CAPSAICIN.

CAPSAICIN REALLY ROCKS,

EQUIPOTENT WITH VIOXX,

AND BLACK PEPPER’S PIPERINE

HELPS THE UPTAKE OF CURCUMIN.

 

AND THE LAUREL IN THE MIX (BAY LEAF THAT IS)

OF COX-2’Is , COUNT THEM, SIX!!!!!!

CLOVES CAN JOIN THEM ALL,

WITH CLOVE OIL OR EUGENOL.

AND THEN THERE’S THE ALLSPICE,

SORTA’ LIKE THE OLD SPICE;

AND GINGER TOPS ‘EM ALL

FOR GINGEROLS AND SHOGAOL.

 

AND MACE HAS KAEMPFEROL

ALONG WITH EUGENOL;

CARDAMOM AND CINNAMON

CAN STOP THE PAIN AGAIN.

A BIT MILDER AND MEEKER

IS MY FAV’RITE PAPRIKA;

SOME PEOPLE SAY CAYENNE

MIGHT EVEN KEEP YOU THIN.

 

OLD BAY; PRAY SAY!

CAN YOU REALLY KEEP ARTHRITIS AWAY?

THE SPICES THAT YOU USE CAN CURB ALL MY COX’2S;

GOOD OLE BOYS, WE CAN REJOICE, IN GOOD OLD BAY.

 

HEY, HEY; OLD BAY

YOU ENRICH MY EVERY LIVIN’ DAY

YOU’RE THE SPICE I ALWAYS USE, IN ALL MY SOUPS AND STEWS

OLD BAY, LET US PRAY, SAVE CHESTNUT BAY

How can you find out which constituents are found in each herb/spice?

Why, you can simply check Dr. Duke’s database!
