The Hap Palmer track is a song I remember from Kindergarten. It is an original by Hap, who pretty much just makes educational records that get played in school. There's nothing much educational about the song, which is about putting things such as "spider webs, moldy bread, fingernails too" into a witches' brew, then wondering "what's it gonna do to you?" I reckon it will fuck you up pretty badly, especially when you get to the motor oil.
