… as you’ve never heard it before.

Now I’ll have to confess, when I hear this I get some very strange lyrics in my head. As a kid we sang this to it:

Comet, it makes your mouth so clean
Comet, it tastes like gasoline
Comet, it makes you vomit
So go get Comet, and vomit, today!

(Anyone else remember the old comet commercial that used part of the Colonel Bogey March?)


  1. Well, as I learned it from my best friend it went:

    Comet – it keeps your bathroom clean.
    Comet – it tastes like Listerine.
    and then the rest was the same as your version.

    I always find it interesting how these childhood things have different lyrics in different parts of the country.

  2. Someone else on a YouTube video sang “it makes your teeth turn green” or some such thing!

    Ah … memories! 🙂

  3. Now that I’ve had a chance to listen – I love the bassoon multiphonics! Interesting that for the most part, when the string players are whistling or singing they are not playing.
