The Lyrics

Everybody has their own disliked food...but is this one genuine?
I can't eat this, cause it's got gravy
I can't have this, got too much gravy
Afraid it's true
Gravy's just gross goo

When I ordered this, I should've been suspicious
The contents weren't written on the menu
My gut cries out "No gravy"
You claim I whine
But I don't mock you for avoiding thyme

Did not tell me this dish needs gravy
Are you really sure it needs gravy?
Cause that sounds wrong
Made up on the spot

I've had this before, there wasn't a spot
Of whatever this brown slop is made of
My tongue cries out "No gravy"
Not my favoured stuff
Won't try it again to see if it's yum

I won't touch this crap, it's got gravy (not gonna touch, it's got gravy)
I'm confident I don't want gravy, yeah

Not takin' the piss, I'm still gravy-abstinent
Don't call me stubborn, that's just totally rude
I know I tossed hot gravy
On top of you, bud
It's all your fault for sayin' that I'm dumb

I told you before I hate gravy (two years ago, mem'ry's hazy)
So I won't touch food that's got gravy (ruined my dinner with gravy)
The worst thing in the world, that's gravy (swear I'm not exaggeratin')
So what if you're drenched in hot gravy (and all your flesh is now bakin')?
I'm the one who's wronged, stupid gravy

I'm definitely in the pro-gravy camp. Also, it was kinda weird not doing my usual "track every single vocal infle-e-ection" thing, but a recent comment by Agrimorfee made me realise that a) it just looks tacky and b) I can't remember why it was a thing in the first friggin' place.

More than enough gravy to give this one a flavor, 555.
