The Lyrics

some take lunch to be a nipple
if babes could only speak
some take lunch to be their ripple
it makes the bums to reek
some take lunch to be a nuckle
a sammich bad for teeth
i take lunch to be a huddle
a time when friends can meet

it’s the dork afraid to speak up
that rarely chews the fat
it’s the fool that never shuts up
that eats the time you had
it’s the one that likes to chow down
that hardly wipes his mouth
and the perv whose jokes are low brow
that takes the luncheon south

if your glass is rather empty
and your plate has run its course
and you think that life is tasting
like the apples from a horse
then consider all the people
well within your country’s shores
make new friends and live the good life
volunteer to feed the poor
