Probably not even close to being "One of the most Politically Incorrect songs of all time". It's a parody of an old folk song to boot.
It's jazzed up a bit, but the words are pretty close to those found in more traditional renditions of the song. The old folk song is itself a parody, though: it observes the form of a traditional type of tragic story-telling song, but the lyrics aren't so much politically incorrect as they are absurd verging on silly.
I had a chain saw for a while. You find if you have a chain saw, you really don't need to use it very often – just walking up to the front desk holding it will usually get a lot done. — Joe Walsh
