The Lyrics

Test your knowledge of sushi with this delicious special of the day.
Gimme that bonafide maki roll
That style of sushi just soothes my soul
I take no interest in filets of sole
Want my bonafide maki roll

All of my friends know I'm a "hocky gai"
I like a fish that's firm and fresh, not fried
Just roll it up in rice and flyin' fish roe
That's a bonafide maki roll

Just serve it up with an Asahi brew
I hear Sapporo complements it nice, too
Here comes my boat, all I can say is "Whoa!"
Got my bonafide maki rolls

Dippin' them bonafide maki rolls
In some tamari and wasabi that's bold
At lunch buffets I fill up plates untold
With some bonafide maki rolls

Just gimme them bonafide maki rolls
That kinda sushi just soothes my soul
With edamame and some hot miso
Got a jones for my maki rolls

Went to a place down in the ca-pi-tal
Sat at the bar and I was ready to go
I told that chef to fill me till I explode
With some bonafide maki rolls

He grabbed that nori and he took control
Some avocado that was ripe and cold
Threw down the rice and made the drama unfold
And before my eyes: a maki roll!

The amaebi and hamachi rocked!
Unagi, maguro and sake (not lox)--
This sushi chef's a slicin', dicin', rice pro
He can improvise a maki roll!

I gonna roll my own maki rolls
This type of sushi just soothes my soul
I caught a fish a couple days ago
It's deboned for my maki roll

Just gimme them bonafide maki rolls
That kinda sushi just soothes my soul
I take no interest in filets of sole
Want my bonafide maki roll

Maki roll
Maki roll
Satisfies my soul!
