The Lyrics

If you've read "House of the Golden Arch," you can see that, yes, I'm ripping myself off. In the case of Fogerty v. Creedence, the Supreme Court ruled you can do that. (Not really.)
Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.
Tryin' to do some eatin' and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for dietin', I hope you'll understand
that I was born a gobblin' man.

My father was a gobbler down in Georgia.
He wound up on the wrong end of a bun.
And I was born in the back seat of a Good Humor truck
dolin' out pops to everyone.

Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.
Tryin' to do some eatin' and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for dietin', I hope you'll understand
that I was born a gobblin' man.

(guitar break)

I'm on my way to New Orleans this mornin'.
I'm leavin' from New Brunswick, New Jersey.
They're always eatin' some good chow down on the Bayou, lard
and jamabalaya's really good to me.

Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.
Tryin' to do some eatin' and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for dietin', I hope you'll understand
that I was born a gobblin' man.

Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.
Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.
Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.
Lord, I was born a gobblin' man.

(guitar fadeout)
