The Lyrics

Inspired by Jon to write this one.
What makes some food taste better
More than just plain butter
And some crazy seasonings?
Something to rescue you from some very dry food?
In a boat, but not at sea
A great supermarket buy
Stock up and stay supplied
Who knows when you'll have company?
Always a demand
For these thick hot helping hands
With dry potatoes, waffles, and thick meat...

Pass the gravy
When your jawing overcooked meat
Pass the gravy
When your potatoes you can't eat
Pass the gravy
Belgian fries, is normal in their land
Pass the gravy, pass the gravy
A turkey meal makes far more grand
Pass the gravy
For that pot roast, hamburger steak, or lamb
Pass the gravy
When the biscuits taste too bland
Pass the gravy
Yes, even on your step mom's ham
Pass the gravy, pass the gravy, pass the gravy (it's so tasty)

On all dry foods, pours hot & smooth
Many flavors of which to choose

Always great at dinner
Gives the food more flavor
Mushroom gravy is a blast
Never hesitate
When dried meat is what you hate
Smother in gravy, make it fast
Especially on pork chops
Gravy always saves the day
Pouring and smothering
Gravy is a luxury
So pass the gravy
So we all can have a treat


On all dry foods, pours hot & smooth
Many flavors of which to choose


On all dry foods, pours hot & smooth
Many flavors of which to choose

Works on scrambled eggs, meatballs, taters
Everything cooked
Using gravy will get you hooked!

Pot pie too, makes it savory

Oh, the thickness
Saved this meatloaf which was crumbling

So much in use, pass the gravy... please
