The Lyrics

First in a series of 54
Oh cripes, it’s the great meat vendor
He’ll vend and then my gut might burst
‘Though to be frank, his products all stank
Last Tuesday my ache was the worst

Oh, oh, help, it’s the great meat vendor
With business I would like to shun
But oh, those smells
And that voice that sells
My gut says I can handle one

To eat just one piece is just not to be
It’s easy to see it’s full of MSG

Guess why my weight ascended
I can’t get away like a lamb
Obesity is a guarantee
While wolfing fried chicken with ham
Like Popeye, I am what I am

To eat just one piece is just not to be
It’s easy to see that the fault lies with me

Well hi, that smells great, meat vendor
My usual guy moved away
I need my fix of kebabs on sticks
My wallet and heart have to pay
But spending is good, experts say
