The Lyrics

The song, of course, long predates the Animals' Number 1 hit of 1964. This is dedicated to wdh.
(guitar opening)

There is a house all over the world
they call the Golden Arch
and it's been the ruin of many a man's heart
and God, it's full of starch!

My mother was a nursemaid
she fed me full of greens!
My father was a gobblin' man
down in New Orleans!

Now the only thing they say 'bout fast food
is that so it's full of junk!
But the only time that I'm satisfied
is when I grab a chunk!

(organ solo)

Oh mothers, tell your children:
Off to Ronald's house, you march!
Spend your lives away from celery!
Try the House of the Golden Arch!

Well, I got one friend on the Atkins
but "Subway" is a train!
I'm going back to old Mickey D's
to eat Big Macs again!

Well, there is a house all over the world
they call the Golden Arch
and it's been the ruin of many a man's heart
and God, it's full of starch!

(organ close)
Mike's parodies: Over 200 served! And don't eat there at Subway, Comedy Guy. That food is just too damn plain.
