  • The whole Mother Nature aspect of this song is a reference to the seventies commercials for Chiffon margarine in which Mother Nature would be fooled into eating the margarine and cause storms when becoming enraged after being fooled. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • The "ba-ba-ba-daaa!" in this song is a reference to the early seventies Imperial margarine commercial (the competition to the commercial in the main theme) where a crown would appear on the margarine eater's head while that fanfare played. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    SPOKEN: This a little tune; a protest song against everything unnatural- entitled "It's Not Nice To Fool Mother Nature"...

    Well I got up this mornin'
    Found the toaster; put some bread in
    Then I went over to the butter compartment
    and I pulled out some margarine
    Now when I get up in the mornin'
    usually feelin' pretty down
    So it picks me right up - bite into that
    margarine to get that crown-

    Sittin' there eatin' my toast and margarine
    In the world I didn't have a care
    When suddenly appears this weird little lady
    with daisies in her hair
    She said, "Gee, I hope you're eatin' my sweet, creamy butter
    after all my toil
    I'd hate to think you're ruinin' yer toast
    with that unsaturated corn oil."

    I wasn't eatin' her butter
    And that much I had to admit
    When pretty soon this here lady
    She just starts havin' a fit
    It was snowin' in my livin' room
    It was rainin' in my den
    And I'm here to tell you people
    I'm never gonna eat margarine again

    And it's not nice to fool Mother Nature
    That's all I came here to say
    And I wish she'd find someone else to pester
    or I wish they'd put her away

    Well, later on in the afternoon, I was sittin' in the bar
    Tellin' jokes and impressin' the folks
    with my new "Glen Campbell" guitar
    Singin' protest songs and doin' stuff (snort)
    that all good folk singers do
    when I noticed the lady with the daisies sittin' there
    sippin' on a brew
    She said, "Gee, I see you're playin' the guitar
    made outta my fine rare wood."
    Well I knew she'd had a few and she was feelin' good
    so I said, "Thank you, Mother Nature for recognizing class
    but this here's a ovation guitar made outta fiberglass"
    Well, the floods they started raging
    as the rain began to come down
    and if my guitar hadn'ta been so buoyant,
    I probably woulda drowned


    Well, I come home this evenin'
    Kissed my girlfriend on the cheek
    and we proceeded on into the bedroom
    just to make those bedsprings squeak (Squeak, squeak!)
    We were really gettin' it together
    and it was gettin' later at night
    when here come the crazy daisy lady
    all dressed up in white
    She said,"I know what you're doin'
    and I don't mind you livin' in sin
    but I got a sneaky suspicion
    you've been messin' with my estrogen"
    Ya know, I just couldn't believe it
    I thought I is gonna be ill
    but I sit up there and admitted
    Yeah, my baby was takin' the Pill
    Well the hail, it started falling
    as the North wind began to come
    with me and my baby sittin' there singin'
    I got rhythm...


    Me and my friends are gettin' loaded
    We're really havin' a ball
    We're smokin', snortin', droppin' and
    starin' at the wall
    Our minds are bein' expanded
    They were expandin' all over the room
    When here come the daisy chick, man
    flyin' in on a broom
    "I'm a lovely marijuana" she said
    as she takes a hit from the pipe
    and her eyes begin to sparkle
    and I knew she was feelin' ripe
    But after we were smokin'
    it wasn't her natural tea
    My friend works in a chemical plant
    and it was his THC
    She was pullin' out a warrant
    as the room began to get dark
    Now who in the world woulda believed
    Mother Nature was a narc

    And it's not nice to fool Mother Nature
    That's all I came here to say
    And I guess she's found someone else to pester
    ever since they put me away

    What happened to Dan Murphy? Heard him in San Diego in the 70's then nothing.
