The Lyrics

Fast food song...
When you're at home, and life is making you hungry
Order by the phone (chow down)
Hot like a curry, feeling cold like McFlurry
You can eat alone (chow down)

Just listen to the food, it spits and sizzles and it's hissy
Fingers off the knives and forks and get your hands so sticky
What will you choose?
The bites are much lighter there
They can take care of your troubles
So pull up a chair and go

Chow down!
Things will taste great when you
Chow down
Home, you can take them and
Chow down
Burger King's waiting for you

(chown down, chow down)

Don't sit and frown, when there are places around you
that will feed you mo' (chow down)
Maybe you know some little sittings or drive-thrus
For some ice-cream cones (chow down)

Just listen as they're grillin' steaks and flippin' burgers over
You'll be drooling over them before your meal is over
Downing your food
The bites have more spice on them
You can have single or double
The smell's in the air as you

Chow down!
Things will taste great when you
Chow down
Home, you can take them and
Chow down
Wendy's is waiting for you

(Chow down, chow down)
(Chow down)
(Chow down)

And you may find somebody kind to pay tips and bills for you
Someone who eats more than you and always ends up bringing money along
And sadly, I see you there
You're scoffing down all your problems
Too big for your chair, 'cos you

Chow down!
Things will taste great when you
Chow down
Home, you can take them and
Chow down
KFC's waiting for you

EXCELLENT food parody. It makes me want to go downtown for a burger. Also reminds me of a great rap parody by WaistLine Connection called "Chow Down" from a few years back (parody of "Bow Down" by Westside Connection--"This food belongs to US!").
