The Lyrics

10/11 for my Fast Food-related Billy Joel parodies. So very close to being done!
Back in the Chef Room, burgers are made
They are very fatty, I'm afraid
Who knows what the people who ordered them weighed?
Might as well be shot with a gun

After making the food, we put it on a tray
We try to cook fast, there is no delay
Ah and since you have your food, now it's time to pay
That comes out to $3.41

What a taste for your tongue!
It is so good
What a taste for your tongue!
What a taste for your tongue!

Sometimes I'm given the duty of making fries
Watch out, eating too much isn't wise
Those stupid things go straight to your thighs
Ah, so what if you weigh a ton?

Some more about them: they're covered in salt
Hey, I just work here, it isn't my fault
I don't care if your life comes to a halt
My pay can't be undone

I don't care if you die, hun
I just don't care if you die, hun
Don't care if you die, Hun

If you have no shirts or
No shoes then you won't get any service
Ooh our food tastes so good
Mmm just like fast food should
But still eating very much of it
Would make me very nervous
Now listen to me
I want to tell you a sad story
One Day A Guy ordered himself a Big Mac
I was the one working in the back
I thought I had put everything
On when it was wrapped
But I had missed just one

How could I forget the bun?
Oh boy, just how could I forget the bun?
How could I forget the bun?

From then on I was sorta
Known for having a forgetful reputation
I'm sure they'll fire me
Do you think you could say a prayer for me?

Back in the Chef Room, burgers are made
They are very fatty, I'm afraid
Who knows what the people who ordered them weighed?
Might as well be shot with a gun
Might as well be shot with a gun
You know that this was a song well sung
So good, baby
You know that this was a song well sung

Is this burger day? Good job!

Need to work on your pacing a bit, but other than that, not bad. Parodying a whole album (and using one subject) is an enormous task. "Might as wel be shot with a gun" was a great line.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
