The Lyrics

Travelin' all around the world,
Got my head set on exotic treats.
Sup in fear--when I take a bite,
I'm chancin' rancid meat.

I'm chancin' in the Congo,
In the Caribbean,
Sup in New York City.

I don't need this food-sick, meat food-sick,
There's food sickness everywhere.
In chicken, bacon, pathogens waitin'.
Chancin' rancid meat.

I just love it--meat sure is my fare,
I long for it everywhere.
So sautéed or fried, flesh grub's my world,
Although it might make me hurl.
Still, I'm chancin',
I'm chancin' rancid meat.

Nonetheless, salivatin' for tasty rations,
I take chances on meat.

Love it chafin', singein', on spits swingin'--
Chancin' rancid meat.
Philadelphia cheesesteak,
Baltimore--it's diseased cow,
Fermented flesh in some cities.

I don't need this food-sick, meat food-sick
There's food sickness everywhere.
In chicken, bacon, pathogens waitin'
Chancin' rancid meat.

I just love it--meat sure is my fare,
I long for it everywhere.
So sautéed or fried, flesh grub's my world,
Although it might make me hurl.

Chancin',
I'm chancin' rancid meat.
Doesn't smell OK;
Eat anyway,
Chancin' rancid meat.

My brother bought some kind of meat-thing from a sidewalk chef in Thailand once, and got sick. This parody's title is hilarious!

Ugh. I had food poisoning 2 weeks ago. This brought it all back about bringing it all up. 5 times.
