The Lyrics

Driving home from work and dreaming of delish dinners my girl makes
Like veal parm with juicy lamb chops and thick bacon-wrapped Delmonico steaks
But when I get home in my ravenous carnivore state
She serves me kale and puts broiled Brussels sprouts on my plate

She tells me that it's Meatless Monday
No filet mignon day
No beef for one day
It's "Quinoa By The Ton" day
She's instituting Meatless Monday

I'm not vegetarian love medium rare rib eyes
But spinach-wrapped asparagus sure helps lower triglycerides
So when dinner is done there won't be burger on my breath, I swear
Craving a Big Mac but there's only a salad there

It's just another Meatless Monday
It's "Veggies Are Fun" Day
Cleanse My Colon day
It's "Tofu On A Bun" day
It's just another Meatless Monday

Though I had fits
You know I really must admit
Cholesterol's down (Low L...DL)
I could get used to
Eggplant, cauliflower pizza crust
And broccoli crowns
Babe even though we won't cook steak
Let's go upstairs, see what else we can make

Maybe Thursday night we can have some fun...

But baby it's still Meatless Monday!
Are you sure it's not Sunday?
Guess it's "No Fun" Day
It's "I Can't Touch Her Buns" Day

I'm kinda down on Meatless Monday
I wish it was Hump Day
Not "Don't Touch Rump" Day
I can't wait till it's Taco Tuesday
Check out the recording on The FuMP here!

Just thinking about all those meat dishes you were denied left me salivating. Well done!

After having just read Andy's parody, I thought the wrong way about this one. That made me laugh in itself :)

I guess Monday was for the meat that can't be beat. Just like this parody. :)

OH THE HUMANITY....broiled brussels sprouts are the worst, man - lots of funny stuff here. And great recording, too!

Very amusing Jeff. Loved the innocent intro stanza and the triglycerides couplet. And the "let's go upstairs" shortcut was very clever and economical - might pinch that idea one day!
