The Lyrics

We had a hamster until quite recently, and one of its bags of food was "Hamster Munch"... so this parody was inevitable, really. I know the OS was originally by Bobby Pickett (or something like that), but I only have the Bonzo's verson.
A friend of mine went off on holiday
I said I'd watch his pet while he was away
And I asked what kind of food does he eat
His answer, it was short but sweet:

He said it's munch
He said it's hamster munch
(The hamster munch)
And then I had a hunch
(I had a hunch)
It was a rodent's lunch
He gave me munch
He gave me hamster munch


In his little cage I kept the little beast
He took to his bedroom his hamster feast
He was cute, he had a hamster appeal
Until the day [he] fell asleep at the wheel


I fed him munch
I fed him hamster munch
(The hamster munch)
He'd crunch upon his lunch
(He'd crunch his lunch)
It packed a crunchy punch
He ate the munch
He ate the hamster munch


That evening, we're having fun
The party had just begun
The guests, no one important missed
Speedily getting pissed


My home was rockin', it was wild and gay
But my nibbles had all been nibbled away
So I nipped down the road to buy more treats
But when I returned... guess what they'd found to eat:


They found the munch
They found the hamster munch
The hamster munch!
It was a rodent's lunch
(A rodent's lunch)
They ate it with a crunch
They ate the munch
They ate the hamster munch


I started to laugh so much I started to choke
It seems my guests didn't get the joke
One ranted, raved and shook his fist
He spoke indistinctly, but I got the gist:


"I've eaten munch
I've eaten hamster munch"
The hamster munch
I think he's gonna punch
He's gonna punch
At least that was my hunch
'Cause he ate munch
He ate the hamster munch


Now everything's cool, I'd just like to say
That my hamster munch, well, it tastes OK
For everyone had some (including me)
And now it's for sale there on QVC


So buy the munch!
Please buy my hamster munch
My hamster munch
It gives a lovely crunch
A lovely crunch
It's really good for lunch
To munch for lunch
So eat my hamster munch

5-5-5 for you, Phil. Having said that, are you British? I ask because you say "pissed" instead of "drunk" & you mention QVC. What is QVC, anyways?

Dylan - yes, I am British, and QVC is a shopping channel (not one I've ever watched, myself, of course ;-) )

Bobby Pickett RIP this week. Monster Mash is great. he was still performing it this year, he announced "I'm going to do a medley of my hit." It continued to pay his rent.
