What are your feelings about this song? Personally, I never loved it, but I still like it. I always thought the song was a little strange, but then again, it's Al.

I do love it. I think it's a really good song, and is one of the reasons that I want to play the accordion. I love the sound of Mr. Frump breathing, and don't really think it's creepy. And I love the bit Al sings at the very end, with the high note.

iExcellente!

I've also always loved the high note that Al hits at the very end of the song. It was a great ending to the first ALbum.

The song was one of the highlights of the album. It's actually one of my favourites.

It's a really great song. So morbid and hilarious. Somehow Al manages to make this song not sad or "he's gone too far"...another example of his songwriting ability.

I really like this song. It's so wrong, yet so funny. I love the use of the air valve on the accordion to make the iron lung sound. That's ingenious!
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I love this song! "Weird" Al Yankovic was my first album and it made a big impression on me. I love it when Al makes morbid songs like this.

Mr. Frump's great. This and "Happy Birthday" are my two favorite songs on this album.

i agree, it's a good song. does he ever do it live? i don't know if the population would get it, b/c iron lungs arn't all that popular any more.. but i think it would be funny.
