The Lyrics

This is my easy summer food parody. All the summertime songs on the radio made me want to do one. If anything doesn't make sense, please comment. And comment if you hated this parody, as well.
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew

during suppertime, when you're ready to dine
you can serve it up, get your fork and knife
when the cooking's fine
you got dinner, you got dinner on your mind
have a drink, have some swine
stay in and eat whatever you can find

if your daddy's rich, have a five course meal
if your daddy's poor, enjoy that one pea
play along, the game
down a ton, or a ton and twenty-five
when the sun goes by
order chicken, chicken that's Kentucky Fried

we're not greedy people
we're not struck by gluttony
share with everybody (if there's plenty to eat)
it's not always fine
we'll go pukin' in a pail, then chug it down
we're always hungry
life's for eatin', even predigested meals

eat along with us
eat eat eat eat eat
yum yum yum yum yum
yeah, we're hung-hungry
yum yum yum
eat yum food eat yum food yum food yum
yum food yum yum yum
yum yum yum food yum yum
alright, oh

chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew, oh
chew-chew-chew, oh, chew-chew-chew

when the feeding's through, yeah, it's working time
cork your stomach, leave your napkin
but bring all the snacks you find
and you'll eat again
getting wider, getting stuck behind your desk
be it raw, be it fried
in your hands should be food, more, not less

consume-sume-sume, consume-sume-sume
consume-sume-sume, consume-sume-sume
consume-sume-sume, consume-sume-sume
consume-sume-sume, consume-sume-sume
consume-sume-sume, consume-sume-sume
consume-sume-sume, consume-sume-sume

during suppertime, always ready to dine
you can't get enough, with fork and knife
food is wrong or right
it don't matter, you got dinner on your mind
have your drinks, be a swine
stay in and suck it into your insides

if your land is rich, stuff your face with your meal
if your land is poor, good luck with your pea
play along, the game
down a ton, 'cos others can down only five
when the sun goes by
you're excretin'-cretin, your excess supplies

we're not greedy people
we're not stuck in gluttony
share with anybody, if they got what we need
eating's not a crime
you're what you eat and we're heated, bloated meat
we're always hungry
life's for eatin', that is our philosophy

eat along with us
eat eat eat eat eat
yum yum yum yum yum
yeah, we're hung-hungry
yum yum yum
eat yum food eat yum food yum food yum
yum food yum yum yum
yum yum yum food yum yum...

ALOT of great lines. obviously plenty of care went into this one which I admire. the only line I'd change is the pea rhyme with meal, a potato peal or wonderbread peal or something . Not that everything hasta rhyme. eg ts eliot but mungo did so... bla bla bla

As luck would have it, I was flipping through the radio today and heard the OS on an oldies station, so I now know how it goes. You did this very well and humorous. 5's.

Thank you very much, Johnny, John, and Billy! Gee, I was afraid people would knock it for lack of originality or pacing. The golden oldies station airs a million songs with "summertime" in the title, but because they're using Mungo's in a commercial I didn't get to hear this one a lot!

Very funny song. I thought you'd repeat the chew-chew-chew part midway through, but you surprised me with consume-sume-sume.
