The Lyrics

Our trip to Outback Steakhouse when our Kids were small.
{intro sung slowly}

Cheese fries coming............Cheese fries coming
( cheese fries a-com'in )
Why do you hide your smarts?.....your mo-ther taught?
Cheese fries a-com'in... and your Ma says...
You eat like SHARKS!

{speedy tempo}

Cheese fries coming...ala carte, girl
Cheese fries coming...ala carte, girl
Hurled... bloom'in onion...emuls-ified
Hurled... Kechup fluged into my eye
Hurled... I think I've lost my appetite
Cheese fries all amoug... ya's eat like Shark World
Denying everythin' you're taught..

Realize children use a...FORK...FORK
And the appetitzer plate..with a napkin folded straight...
You give heartburn and headache...must we remind you every day
Everywhere we go-o...

We taught ( but they'd never got it straight )
We thought ( they'd not domesticate )
We taught (but the manners faded-way )
We're begging you pleeeeezzzzeee.
No No... No No... No No...
No No... No No... No No...

Cheese fries coming...( wipe it, wipe it, wipe it)
World-cheese fries a-flung-in- you better dive
World-cheese fries a-flung-in- you better dive
(Ah haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
World- cheese fries a-com'in-you'd better hide from little sharks now.
Better, better hide that thought

Cheese fries plummet, now ...WASH...WASH
No.. you never lick your plate...could ya sit up nice and straight..
You give heartburn and headache, must we remind you everyday
Every where we go-o...

We walked ( but we couldn't get away)
We paid ( the bill in lemonade )
We cleaned ( up after the melee )
No No...No No...No No..
No No...No No...No No
(wipe it)..she can (wipe it)..Somebody...(wipe it)
(wipe it).. Oh No (wipe it) No Nobody.............
{fade out}
Original songwriter Larura Nyro released by Three Dog Night in 1969

I am a sucker for this type of song. :D I identify so well...I can just see the ketchup and lemonade flying. Definite 5's

We forgot to mention that we were the first to parody "Eli's Coming" at Amiright.
Wild Man wanted to be the first to do the "Bad Company" song but Bob Gomez beat him to the punch. Nice work Bob, yours was definely better we both agreed.
Still have the "Kids" theme going on here. All parents feel frustration at times, and we have always delt with our trials with humor.

Diva/Wild Man--hope I didn't offend you with my parody today--I thought you would get a laugh and I hope you did; that's all I intended; please tell me you're not offended-

You can't hide your flyin' fries. Great one! May I suggest a restaurant in Chicago? Eli's, the Place for Steak! Eli's, were coming!

No offense taken, Hey Royce & Adagio. Let's all go to Lunch at Eli's Place for Steak. I hear Pacholek is buying, and we promise to leave the "Kids" home this time.

Hey ,Wildman - Great concept. I serve you up a side of 5's with that. Y' know, I think this may breed spinoffs...One might be the 1969 Queso Who hit, "Cheese Fries - I grew big thighs - for you..."

Thanks for noticing =) We have 3 kids, so they provide lots of parody ideas for us! When you use songs you love, It makes the parody easier.

Eli's in Chicago (where I used to live for 11 years) is best known for their cheesecake.
