The Lyrics

The best food comes deep fried and on a stick (not really, but for this song it does!) Original Song:
When I was young, “Eat your fruits and veggies!”
“Come on mom, it looks really gross!”- but
Now I am much older, moved on
Carnival food isn’t bad, you can’t go wrong!

Mmm-mmm, Mmm-mmm

Sir, give me that fried dough, take it right from the fryer
I’ll take that corn dog too, but please add a stick of butter
Oh man!
No, I shouldn’t be eating all this grease, no
Sure it tastes great, but it’s better with gravy

The best kind is the deep fried, well
There’s nothing I won’t try

Hey, just for fun, let’s throw in this salmon
Popsicles, while they still are frozen
This bacon cheeseburger is good
It’s on a stick! This cuisine, you can’t go wrong!

The best kind is the deep fried, well
There’s nothing I won’t try

It’s all good in my eyes; just cover it all in bacon
Roll this up; yes I know it’s an extra-large pizza
I beg you please, take mayonnaise my good man
Add some bacon bits, and then please deep fry my hand
Found some cake on the ground; let’s dip that in the batter,
Mmmm, it’s so good- won’t listen to my doctor cause

The best kind is the deep fried, well
There’s nothing I won’t try

But then I paid the price, went on Tilt-a-Whirl
What happened next wasn’t fun…
And then I had a thought, “Aw man, I should’ve trusted mother
Is food much better when it’s in the fryer?”
And then I realized the thoughts I was thinkin’
Shrugged it off and laughed- “Look at that oil glisten!”

When I die young, bury me with bacon
Lay me down with a side of French fries
Funnel cake and mayonnaise, whole ton!
You’ll need a crane to pick me up when I’m done

Mmm-mmm (Mmm-mmm)
This cuisine sure is fun (Yum yum!)
Full of grease and lard
The line, it starts here, wait until I order
Said I’m eating fine, so just please don’t tell my doctor, no

The best kind is the deep fried, well
There’s nothing I won’t try

So, do all your best boys…I’ll be here awhile

I'll bet that sits like lead in your stomach. I'll take the cotton candy.

I love me some corn dogs and mustard but my favorite carnival food is Frito Pie.

I've heard this song a bunch of times on the radio but this is the first parody I've seen of it. Very well done. You made this depressing little country song a laugh riot.

(ABC) Got some 'deep fried' laughs out of this one!

Abbott, that was great! The chorus was fun to sing with ("deep frriiiiiiiiiiiied...). You covered the entire topic well, without getting gross (and the Tiltawhirl line matched perfectly to the music break that followed it), paced extremely well (this was a very oddly structured OS), and with an unpredictable ending.

(ABC) I don't even like bacon, but I much prefer this tribut to grease and gluttony to the emo country bullcrap that is the OS. Fantastic parody, 555 tubs of lard!

(ABC) I thought this was hilarious! Although one line confused me. "Now I am much older, moved on". Going with the line before that would suggest that you've moves on from not eating healthy food, not the other way around. Other than that, this was awesome! 555 corn dogs with butter for you!

Actually Blaydeman, it was supposed to be read as if he was saying "Now I'm much older, moved on...from my mom telling me what to eat"

Oh I see, gotcha! ;)

(ABC) Junk food does taste the best! I wish I could eat like this, but an athletes diet is a strict one :( Anyway, my wishes aside, this was great!

Particularly liked 'bury me with bacon'. And the OS wasn't bad at all - sure beats all that Lady Gaga crap. ;)

My favorite line is "I’ll take that corn dog too, but please add a stick of butter"
