The Lyrics

Chompin’ down on Rocky Road,
Wondering what I’ll next be eating.
Not a cuke with a bitter end,
Nothing with a too-strong taste.
Every day for lunch I’m living—
Gotta stow in that meal, my friend.

Ooh, I want food today,
Ooh, I want huge parfait.

I’m ready for lunch,
So tasty, I’m ready for lunch.
Ready for lunch,
Oh, babybacks! Ready for lunch.
Oh, for more lunch!

Wow! I’m gonna eat again.
Then I think: sound snooze, nappin’. . .
All this food puts me in a daze.
Many piles of plates I’ve cleared.
Fried in lard were pounds of taters.
Lipids low! That’s “not,” I’m afraid.

Ooh, I want food today,
Ooh, I want pooch flambé.

I’m ready for lunch,
So tasty; I dread days sans lunch.
Ready for lunch—
No way just snacks. Ready for lunch, yummmmmm!
Oh so ready for lunch,
Great taste.
I’m ready to gorge lunch.

Ooh, I want food today,
Ooh, I want, too, soufflé.

I’m ready for lunch. . . .
