The lyrics to “call Me A Duck” are set to the tune “All Of The Above.” Here is the original, by Maino:

According to the wikipedia entry for Maino’s “All Of The Above”, the Auburn Tigers football team used this as their official intro song during the 2009 season, and still play it during games. I wonder how they will like it if “Call Me A Duck” runs on the Jumbotron during the 2011 BCS National Championship game? On the Rocks has covered the original song also.¬† Here is a performance from the EMU Fishbowl, which film connoisseurs will recognize as the location for the food-fight scene in Animal House.
