In a 1963 essay, Isaac Asimov pointed out that paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde can be sung to the tune of “The Irish Washerwoman.” <br /> <br /> Inspired, John A. Carroll wrote this jig:<br /> <br /> (chorus:) Paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde<br /> Sodium citrate, ammonium cyanide<br /> Phosphates and nitrates and chlorides galore<br /> Just have one o’ these and you’ll never need more.<br /> <br /> Got messed up last night on furfuryl alcohol<br /> Followed it down with a gallon of propanol<br /> Drank from mid-morning til late afternoon<br /> Then spat on the floor and blew up the saloon.<br /> <br /> (repeat chorus)<br /> <br /> Paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde,<br /> Powdered aluminum, nitrogen iodide<br /> Slop it around and add some benzene<br /> Then top off the punch with Fluorescein<br /> <br /> (repeat chorus)<br /> <br /> Whiskey, tequila and rum are too tame,<br /> The stuff that I drink must explode into flame.<br /> When I break wind it strips all the paint in the room,<br /> And rattles the walls with an earthshaking boom.<br /> <br /> (repeat chorus)<br /> <br /> Paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde<br /> Go soak your head in a jar of formaldehyde<br /> Scrub very hard, then rinse out your mane<br /> In dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane!

Paradimethylaminobenzaldehyde always gives me gas.
