The Lyrics

I got a swell tofu
"Turkey"; let's dine.

Lots o' garbanzo stuffin' too.
Eat your peas, son,
We're goin' vegan.

"You know, I can't stand it;
I can't keep it down.
Don't make me eat, daddy,
This ghastly repast that you have found.

"I don't feel well; I'll spew
The soy-based 'swine,'
'tain't fine."

There's tofu
Tempeh, too
All for you,
Some tofu shaped like sow.
And ersatz hare,
Complements "turkey,"
Lentil-loaf "cow."
Beets, no beef.

But son can't squelch his spew--
Up comes what's dined.

[fade on sounds of tofu-tummy tumult]

Call me odd (most people do) but I happen to enjoy Tofurkey!
