The Lyrics

I would like a po' boy,
Heard a story that here they're sold,
Do you honor cards of finance?
Hear my stomach as it grumbles with its emptyness.
All I ingest,
At this stand here, could I get a beer?
It helps my food digest.

Can I get some fries and some onion rings,
On the side with that po' boy?
And a coffee, make it Folgers,
When my diet tells by salivation needs a square,
Bur-ri-tos heading out there for the border,
I could bag a few tacos.
Mooching at the places where my face ain't known.

Try the fries, try the fries, hey, try the fries,
Try the fries and the key lime pie's a real good buy,
While it's in supply.

Fast food guys don't earn much wages,
It's a pretty thankless job.
I would like some water.
Are your burgers made from horse or even kangeroo?
I'd eat some mare, at this time I feel the famine,
Just any kind of fare.

Try the fries, try the fries, hey, try the fries,
Try the fries and the key lime pie's a real good buy,
While it's in supply.

I am short today on di-ner-os,
But wishing hunger gone,
Need a loan.
Might could try work Citi Bankers into feeding me,
Feeding me, get a loan.

Could you meal me with a box lunch,
For which you'd be gladly paid?
If you'll carry me, I'll sign here,
Then come next Tuesday pay it down.
My hunger, how it cries out,
It's this hunger makes me lame.
It's my living, it's my living,
Grab a bite here on my name.

I don't buy, I don't buy, no I don't buy,
I don't buy, why should I buy, when I get by,
Like this on the sly.

Great rhyming to the OS, Guy. Where's Jack Wilson? He'd love this!

I found this by clicking on the 'random' button. A hidden classic :)

Like Alvin said yesterday when you hit him on a random - I too had forgotten that I wrote this. I amused myself reading it again. Thanks for the commentary, Pip.
