The Lyrics

Gruel is a thin soup or porridge
In old Charle's Dicken's tale
Oliver Twist, I mean
They sipped soup thin and pale,
The worst food ever seen..
Don't Eat Gruel..It's a food that's cruel!

Nothin' but some flour'd salt,
Boiled water with added paste
Refuse it and default..
It's poor porridge with no taste...
Don't Eat Gruel..It's a food that's cruel!
Even if there's nothin' else,
Instead of eatin' gruel..just starve yourself!

Sometimes made with oatmeal,
But still it ain't no treat
A yukky and nasty bloat meal,
That no human mouth oughta' eat...
Don't Eat Gruel...Ain't a food that's cool!
If ya' ain't got nothin' else,
Instead of eatin' gruel..just starve yourself!

I've heard that in Korea,
They make good gruel with rice..
Hey, don't let 'em fool ya'
There just ain't none that is nice..
Don't Eat Gruel...Ain't a food that's cool!
If ya' can't find nothin' else,
'Stead of eatin' gruel..just starve yourself!

Don't Eat Gruel..It's a food that's cruel!
Don't Eat Gruel..It's a food that's cruel!
If there just ain't nothin' else,
'Stead of eatin' gruel..just starve yourself!

Don't eat Pantagruel if you have Rabelaisian appetites.

Hi, AFW! Good parody; however, TOS was from the 50s, namely 1956. Still give ya 5/5/5.
