The Lyrics

i left home and made a journey
to a restaurant that i like
they serve lots of food that's fit for kings
lots of oriental things
the first thing i ate, wasn't ample enough
just a start, i avowed
and that was not..why i dropped by
straight ahead, i now plowed

a meal's really pleasant when the course is chow mein
it tastes good when its finally obtained
i'm in heaven...that ain't hard to explain
cause its so much fun, that my mirth can't be feigned
yum yum yum....yum yum yum yum...yum yum yum...yum yum
yum yum yum....yum yum yum yum...yum yum yum...yum yum

after two plates, more i could not shun
my gut still yearned to be fed
after three plates, i was still not done
won't you bring me some more, i pled
cause my appetite's bold...i've a hunger, untold
one would think i'm out of my head

you see, a meal's really pleasant when the course is chow mein
its absurd, all the weight...i have gained
i'm so heavy...that my heart feels the strain
but it ain't no good tellin' that to my brain
yum yum yum....yum yum yum yum...yum yum yum...yum yum
yum yum yum....yum yum yum yum...yum yum yum...yum yum

after nine plates, i felt my pants burst free
i am filled to capacity
i can't stand or stir or anything
and my throat really stings
i should learn my lesson and stop chowin' it down
but i can't help the things i love
and i ain't quittin'...i'll be comin' around
to devour my favorite stuff

you see, a meal's really pleasant when the course is chow mein
though its takin' a toll on my frame
i'm a glutton...and there's no one to blame
and i'll still pig out cause i'm feelin' no shame
yum yum yum....yum yum yum yum...yum yum yum...yum yum
yum yum yum....yum yum yum yum...yum yum yum...yum yum

Might Lo Mein have rhymed better? Ah who cares. With 5s you get egg roll!

I detest TOS, and unfortunately know it well enough to see your pacing is spot on, so these 5s are earned. In two hours I may have to vote again...
