happiest place on earth ?

disneyland's a happy place
the happiest on earth
but once a year the park becomes
a place that holds no mirth
a lot of stress builds up in there
pure joyfullness is work
and once a year
they snap, i fear
the whole place goes berserk
no one knows just why it happens
some alignment of the stars ?
saturn in the seventh house ?
the earth too close to mars ?
but something takes a hold on them
both characters and cast
and merriment is out the door
the change you see is vast
tinkerbell will give you hell
and mickey is a louse
and pooh the most beloved
is the meanest in the house
pluto gives you rabies
peter pan takes off his pants
dumbo just may kill you
as he tries to make romance
goofy slips you roofies
tigger slashes with his claws
daisy duck becomes a schmuck
and nemo turns to jaws
the small world dancing children
start advancing holding knives
and strange moments with abe lincoln
have folks running for their lives
minnie's high on bennies
bambi just too wild for words
the tiki room's enchanted
till its more like hitchcock's "birds"
the jungle crew is boozin'
indy jones pulls out his whip
the seven dwarves
have stormed the wharves
and stole the pirate ship
cinderella punched some fella
alice ate some rabbit stew
donald duck has ran amok
oh wait...that's nothing new
chip and dale chewed eeyore's tail
and mister toad ran wild
snow white went nuts
and kicked some butts
and stitch just ate a child
but with closing time approaching
all the mayhem there will cease
the surviving patrons leave the park
the next day there is peace
then everything is normal
with no worries and no fear
but heaven help the folks
who pick that one bad day a year
