The Lyrics

I see that hungry look upon your face.
You got your truffles; I want mine.
They stuck their snouts into the hiding place.
You got your truffles thanks to swine.

What have you got for lunch toda-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay?
The hogs on a fungus fora-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay.

You kindly ask me to indulge and dine.
"Mis trufas son tus trufas." I'm
For this gastronomy; it's mighty fine,
"These truffles, yours as well as mine."

I used to love meat, that I know-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow.
I'm now a truffled man--some mo'-o'-o'-o'-o'-o-o'.
Get those hogs stalkin';
Hope they aren't balkin'.
Gourmets love fungus foo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-od.

And so forgive me if I beat your swine. . .
Need a fungus fix when I dine.

Troubled countervoice:
I grieve when the meal's at an end.
She says, "Here's something pretty for you,
It's dainty too:
Prepare your chops; this sop'll stop your "through" moue.
I pop it in my mouth; truff love is mine.
I'd had my truffles--both sublime,
I first had truffles found by swine,
And then had truffles, candy ki-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ind.

I found myself lichen this one a lot. (After all, fungi and algae are a lichen some ways.)

"Mis trufas son tus trufas."

Yo entiendo - muy hilario. ┬┐Que acerca de su casa? The pigs can get quite temperamental about sniffing out the fungus. They won't serve, these swine, before their time.

You nailed this one down very well. I listened to the OS which just made it completely funny. Fine job sir bard.
