But there was a fly in the ointment

The town was plagued with plague

Everywhere you looked people were dropping like flies

So right after they got back from their honeymoon

They went to see Madame Peep

A shepherdess who did some fortunetelling on the side...among other things

And they asked her why the town was plagued with plague

And she told them they didn't really want to know

And Oedipus said, "Tell me anyway"

And Madame Peep said, "You asked for it"
