The Lyrics

What kind of foil am I
Here on the shelf above
You should know me, I am the one
All buyers are thinking of

My name's here on the box,
It's (blank, blank) Wrap
On each Thanksgiving day
Big turkeys know my flap..

I'm foil of quality
Hands won't poke through, no diss
I'll crinkle and take kitchen shove,
Stay strong and still shine like this..

I am that foil you love,
Not weak like other brands
Oh, baby you should know
What kind of foil I am...

A solid sound I make
Torn from my box edge knife
I'm on the job each day
Small price to pay
Long is my life..

Yes, I'm the one you need
Actor, Burt shares my name
So, maybe now you know
What kind of foil I am

I'm sure that now you know
What kind of foil I am....

Lancasterfoil? Tim Burtfoil? No wait, he's not an actor. Richard Burtfoil? Anyway, wrap it around these 555s.

How about Laurence 'Foil'ivier? 'Foil'iver Reed? Or my personal favourite - Kevin Bacofoil? Loved this one even more when I imagined it sung in that 'earnest actor'-y voice - 555!
