The Lyrics

The O.S. was about L.S.D. This parody spoofs M.S.G. and expores the exotic tastes of the Orient.
Picture yourself in a booth for a dinner
with Mandarin teas and Cantonese rice
Somebody waits you, you order unknowing
A dish with an octopus fried

Savory chowders of yellow and green
powering into your head
Look for the girl with the squint in her eyes
And your gonged (gong sound)

Ming Yee has the Spice of Giants
Ming Yee has the Spice of Giants
Ming Yee has the Spice of Giants
Aahh! Soo!

Follow her down to a wok in the kitchen
where China town people make pot sticker pies
Every one smiles as you sniff up the chowders
That smell so incredibly spiced

Kikkoman sauces you buy in the store
waiting to spice up your day
Your in the back trading jokes with the chefs
And your gonged (gong sound)


Picture yourself on a Junk in the ocean
with glad Peking sailors with working class ties
Suddenly someone is their in the Gally
The girl with your octopus fried

(chorus 2X)

We no have too much MSG, you just not evolved like us. I want to wok with you and talk, but well... I wok alone, man. Check my parody "I Wok Alone" yesterday for a better understanding of this comment. Very funny parody, very good subs, even better when fried. Keep up good work.
