CSI: South Park

Ignore the headlines—they'll only depress you anyway! Far wiser to tune it all out, mind one's own business, and concentrate on something really important, like figuring out the lyrics to the final song in the 1999 film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut!

Living in a “quiet, little, etc.” mountain town myself, I've tried to puzzle out all of the adjectives in that catchy tune and remain stumped by several. The Web, as usual, offers a wealth of suggestions, all inconsistent. Let's pin it down, shall we? In CSI: South Park I've broken down the passage into word-sized chunks (which you can either play on-line, if your browser understands links to .wav audio files, or download in MP3 or .wav format to play offline), with suggestions for the various words from transcriptions on the Web. As responses from bat-eared readers arrive, I'll add a tabulation of votes for various interpretations of each word.

Thanks in advance for contributing to this momentous intellectual undertaking!
