Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

You have banned steaks and rounds,
Chicken, scones; all then groan
And scream like banshees; down
You plop 'em thinned cornpone.
Don't feed gruel to this scarfless crew.

Tasty? Ick, the flavor's bad!
Nothin' to it; weight is shed.
Least it don't give you gas,
But it makes you light in the head.
Don't feed gruel to this fartless stew.

Although you don't much lunch love,
Tasty munchin's, what they're thinkin' of.

It sinks in your tummy,
Thinner than watered whey.
Cut 'em a little lunch meat,
Let 'em have real vittles today.
Don't feed gruel; gizzard parts will do.

Why should they be so starved?
Grill up some babybacks and start to carve.

Let 'em chomp on a peach,
Chug milk, munch soybeans too.
Boys' and gals' bones'll leach
If calcium's taboo.
Don't feed gruel to this starving crew.

Although you don't much brunch love,
Tasty munchin's, what they're thinkin' of.

Don't feed gruel to this scarfless crew,
Don't feed gruel to this starving crew,
Or else you might just be hove
To the kitchen and pitched in the stove.
