The Lyrics

come on, i beg ya...don't make me wait
i gotta eat fast...i'm running late
and i really don't mind that the place smells like bait
i might as well have me some

he shows me a menu...i grab a tray
his dishes are simple, but blow you away
you get lots of chow for the price that you pay
it tastes so good on your tongue
gimme that egg foo yung...that's what i said
gimme that egg foo yung...gimme that egg foo yung

you might have heard he's attracting a good size crowd
best in the city...and he's so proud
his eyes are closed and his head is bowed
aw, he sure is a funny one

come down to see him...look for his sign
check out his specials...a great place to dine
tonight, i'm certain, you'll be first in line
you will be in for fun
mister, gimme that egg foo yung...whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
i tell ya...gimme that egg foo yung...gimme that egg foo yung

his attentiveness to your party is a revelation
he's just a real good soul...hmmm...with a heart of gold
and the very best part is, you never need a reservation
and you feel carefree,
as you are chewing on your fricasee...oh whoa whoa

they say it is heaven, for those who will wait
some say there's better, but i say there ain't
i'd rather be here for dinner...i've got no complaints
cause dinner is so much fun
when you gimme that egg foo yung...oh whoa whoa
i tell ya...gimme that egg foo yung...gimme that egg foo yung

you know, brother, i'm enthralled
i gotta tell ya...i feel jubilation
aw, you gotta come and see
come, and you can split a fryer with me...oh whoa whoa

come on, come on
come on, i beg ya...don't hesitate
i can guarantee you'll clean your plate
sooner or later, you'll know its first-rate
scream at the top of your lungs
why don't you gimme that egg foo yung...tell ya, baby
gimme that egg foo yung...gimme that egg foo yung
gimme that egg foo yung...gimme that egg foo yung
