The Lyrics

Tuna or Gator, make your own fajitas
Tuna or Gator, seafood versus Cajun
Tuna or Gator, grilled with red bell peppers
Tuna or Gator, We’re all diggin in

Sample a little of both
Before you turn up your nose
You never will know until you try it
Now don’t be frightened my friend
They both taste a lot like chicken
You taste all of the juices when you fry it

Tuna or Gator, pass your empty plate heah
Tuna or Gator, what’s your ‘snap’ decision
Tuna or Gator, what is gonna sate ya
Tuna or Gator, I don’t mean to din

You got a fierce appetite
So why not try a few bites
And taste alligator are you frightened
Squeeze on a wedge full of lime
I bet you prob’ly will find
An exotic taste you can delight in

If you’re looking to sup
Some mighty strong flavors
We’ll be serving ‘em up
With some swamp gator
Boy I guarantee
On this infusion
Just you try and see
You’ll find this amusin’

Tuna or Gator, lunch it wasn’t catered
Tuna or Gator, there’s enough for seconds
Tuna or Gator, have some with your taters
Tuna or Gator, Lunch is served my friend
Lunch is served my friend

After a smatter of grace
Go and just load up your face
And have all you want of that there lizard
Now don’t be timid my friend
Just enjoy and dig in
And shove all your wanting down your gizzard

Tuna or Gator, You know there’s no pressure
Tuna or Gator, Now you’re eatin’ Cajun
Tuna or Gator, loyalties can test ya
Tuna or Gator, boy you’re looking thin!

Tuna and Gator, if you asked a waiter
Tuna and Gator, if you were to rate ‘em
Tuna and Gator, neither is the greater
Tuna and Gator, both ‘em get a ten
