The Lyrics

This morning when I was eating my porridge,
I stirred some honey in and made it orange,
That's when I,
Caught their eye;
Little people living in the bowl,
And I said "Hi, how the heck are yall?",
They said "Fine",
But then in 30 seconds time I said;

"I wanna swallow porridge people,
I wanna stir them round with a silver spoon;
I wanna eat up porridge people,
I wanna eat up porridge people like you."
And they said "Your so sad,
We'll tell the UN that you're bad."

They took thier diplomats to San Francisco,
They called Obama up but he had to go
Somewhere,
But he didn't go there;
They said to Gordon Brown "We've got some money,
Kill Jakko Wakko and we'll give it to you up front
In a baptist font
'Cos they said;

"He wants to swallow porridge people,
He wants to eat us but he's just a real big wuss;
He wants to eat up porridge people,
He wants to eat up porridge people like us;"
But Brown was on the loo,
And when he came out said, "I'd eat you up too!"

And they went to Pope Greogory,
But Pontiff was having a wee;
So they went off to Wen Jinbao,
He's not available right now;
They went to see Taro Aso,
And all he said was "Oh well, so?"
Canadian PM Harper,
Said very slowly with a slur "So this guy,"

"Wants to swallow porridge people,
He wants to stir them round with a silver spoon;
He wants to eat up porridge people,
He wants to boil them in a chicken stew;
And then dab some bread in it,
His mouth needs to be filled up with grit."

I got a call from the porridge people,
They said "We're gonna fill up your mouth with loads of poo;
And that will stop us porridge people,
From being boiled in a chicken stew;
And all the stupid things that we've done,
Were actually very very fun."


I wanna befriend porridge people like you,
I wanna befriend porridge people like you,
I wanna befriend porridge people like you,
I wanna befriend porridge people like you,
I wanna befriend porridge people like you,
I wanna befriend porridge people like
Yoooooowowowow
Yoooooowowowow
Oh You.
