The Lyrics

MAY-O

May-o, May-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the may-o
May, me say may-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo

Work all day and I growl in my tum
Lunch time comes and me want to eat some
A big banana just doesn't sound fun
For lunch I want something between a bun

Come little lunch lady, tally me a sandwich
Lunch time come and me want to eat some
Come little lunch lady, tally me a sandwich
Lunch time come and me want to eat some
A six foot, seven foot, eight foot sub
Lunch time's here and I gotta get some

May, me say may-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo
May, me say may-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo

Mustard, ketchup, but no mayo
Lots of turkey and seasoned dough
Pepper Jack, Colby, and Cheddar cheese
Make me a sub, but no mayo please

Six foot, seven foot, eight foot sub
Lunch time's here and I gotta get some
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot sub
Lunch time's here and I gotta get some

May, me say may-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo
May, me say may-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo

Come little lunch lady, tally me a sandwich
Lunch time's here and me want to eat some
Come little lunch lady, tally me a sandwich
Lunch time's here and me want to eat some

May-o, May-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo
May, me say may-ay-ay-o
Give me a sandwich, but hold the mayo
Thsi was done as an assignment for 8th grade music.

I'm just not rallyin'
To eat a ripe banana
This was a great food parody to a great song. Well done. I'd give you the 8 foot sub but the counter only goes to 5.
