The Lyrics

Little bit of (admittedly made-up) nostalgia for ya. To be clear, though, when I say "chips" think "fish and chips", those thick ones like the kind you get at KFC.
Sometimes I miss
When my burger combo fix
Ain't like what I downed
Fridays near the park
Perfect chow, never had
It's like again, just makes me sad
Need to try to find that shop

Macca's is okay, but
What tasted great was
Those awesome chips, they kept me fed
What a feed, no matter which size, all suit my needs
But nobody knows
Where the place was, I'm upset

Just one bag could fill my tum
For the whole weekend and then some
And they never skimped on chicken salt for me
Know it was unhealthy food, never stopped
I loved my chips fresh from the shop
Got drowned in sauce each week

Hungry Jack's? Okay, but
What tasted great was
Those thick-as-hell chips, they kept me fed
Such a treat, each chip's ten fries, no, more like twenty
Still failed to look up
Where that place was, I'm in hell

One serve always put me at ease (ooh-ooh, ba-ba-ba)
I ate it any way I pleased (ooh-ooh, ba-ba-ba)
Downed so fast, I burped
Enough to break phone screens
Sandwiched up, gravied now (ooh-ooh, ba-ba-ba)
That is the best way that I've found (ooh-ooh, ba-ba-ba)
To make a mess you'll never clean

KFC's okay, but (oh-oh-oh)
What tasted great was (oh, oh-oh-oh)
Those crispy-ass chips, they kept me fed
What a meal, sometimes I skipped lunch and morning tea (ooh-ooh, ah-ah-ah)
I get so full up
Want that feeling once again

Damn, where is that shop? Don't want substitutes
Stomach curls when I think of what poor stock would do
Where's my deep-fried, thickly cut ar'try blockers, dude?
Fix: hot chips, want them more than other foods
Screw healthy and "whole" foods, I'll get what I want, dude, ooh-ooh

Okay, think I lost it

Those chips were real great, but
What I'm afraid of
Is I've hyped the chips a bit too well
Hope to see the shop front once more and have a feast (ooh-ooh, ah-ah-ah)
But if that's never
Look, never's not that bad

Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (doo, doo, doo-doo, doo, doo, doo-doo)
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (doo, doo, doo-doo, doo, doo, doo-doo)
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (doo, doo, doo-doo, doo, doo, doo-doo)
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (doo, doo, doo-doo, doo, doo, doo-doo)
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo-doo)
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (doo, doo, doo-doo)

In America, you have fries and you have chips. In the UK, you have chips and you have crisps. Here in Australia, though, you have chips and you have chips. Because Australia is where the English language gave up.

Damn! Can the poor guy get his chips?! He’s begging for them throughout the entire song and he never gets his answer of what shop it was... Not a bad song but went a little long for the topic and it got kind of boring near the end. Perhaps his quest to find these chips and never finding the right shop would have been a more entertaining way to go

Wow, you REALLY really like chips, Conq. A double-fried sebago thick-cut is a pleasure to the tastebuds though I must admit - 555 - and can't go past the Maccas bag either
