The Lyrics

Food-borne illness on the high seas.
Ladle ladle ladle le la la la la
Ladle ladle ladle le la la la la
Ladle ladle ladle le la la la la

Now that I’ve lost 30 pounds at sea,
They say my uniform, is baggy on me,
And it’s breakin’ my gut, I’m heavin’,
Toilet bowl cleavin’.
So I went to see the Doc for intestinal care,
He said, “Bad pot pie is the reason you’re here,
But then a lot of nice meals turn bad out there.”

CHORUS:
Bad Navy gravy is why I hurled.
Contaminated broth comin’ from the sauce curled.
Bad Navy gravy is why I hurled.
It’s hard to get well, with Pepto Bismol pink swirl.

You know I’ve eaten many awful mess hall gruels,
Wreaked havoc on this seamen’s stools,
Because I’ve never taken any antacids,
Don’t be so placid.
But if I’m gonna heave, I just can’t bear,
Soiling all my clothes and my new underwear,
Gotta mop the poop deck, with a Haines-like spare.

CHORUS

Ladle ladle ladle le la la la la
Ladle ladle ladle le la la la la
Ladle ladle ladle le la la la la

Pot pie I loathe you!
But if I’m gonna heave, I just can’t bear,
Soiling all my clothes and my new underwear,
Gotta mop the poop deck, with a Haines-like spare.

CHORUS 2x
