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.
It will always be the Huckleberry Hound song to me. Huck was my favorite cartoon character when I was four.
"Oh, my darlin' Clemen-TIIIIIIINE!"
"There were long green couches on the first floor that smelled like failure and
skin flakes, and no one would nap on them for fear of catching salmonella."
