    An ode to something quite clean
    The ballad of Patou Caline
    A complex white soap
    Sent by God on a rope
    To give you that spick and span sheen

    I want to smell like an 'old man'
    And walk around waving a fan
    Old frags are the best
    On my god-like chest
    You youngsters smell like Peter Pan

    Ambergris that is more brown than white
    Could well give your nostrils a fright
    Emitting the pong
    Of an overnight thong
    Don't be tempted to give it a bite

    So, off to Canada I went
    With a beaver guide and a tent
    But beaver caught me
    Tied me up to a tree
    And now he's wearing my scent...

    Civet paste does smell like a diaper
    But in a blend there is no ass wiper
    Vintage Moustache
    Does not smell of ass
    But there is something lovely and ripe there...

    Kouros users back then weren't refined
    And they only had one thing in mind
    Wear something so loud
    And create a scent cloud
    Hoping for some bump and some grind

    Buying multiple bottles of frags
    I've stopped buying stuff
    I have quite enough
    That 'one more' can drive you quite mad
