The Lyrics

An ode to an essential part of lunch and dinner which even includes a mention for a well-known franchise and spokesman who would gladly agree about the benefits of gravy, if they were to read this.
Where can you taste texture
With a few minutes' stir, yeah
Learn high class gastronomy
Where can your belching take shape all thanks to one chew
Don't reach for the salt shaker
The calories are high
And pepper doesn't jive
Munch pork chops or vegies
Just drop your belt a notch
Don't spill it on your crotch
Just shout out "where's the beef?'

In the gravy
Yes, you can dip your brussel sprouts
In the gravy
Yes, you can flush your taste buds out
In the gravy
Mashed potatoes turn to cream
In the gravy, in the gravy
Dunk your bread like it's a dream
In the gravy
It's no chore to make your plate clean
In the gravy
Dive for carrots and for peas
In the gravy
Jared Fogle's on his knees
In the gravy, in the gravy, in the gravy (in the gravy)

They want you, they want you
They want you in the chicken stew

If you like your vegies
Don't make them feel lonely
Drown everything quick fast
Don't skip your main course
The desserts are just whores
Just flashing off all sugary fat
Diets are no excuse
For a dish that tastes bland
Just savour your meat and three veg
Whatever they may be
Lash your food with gravy
The cravings will have an orgy

In the gravy
Yes, you can dip your brussel sprouts
In the gravy
Yes, you can flush your taste buds out
In the gravy
Mashed potatoes turn to cream
In the gravy, in the gravy
Dunk your bread like it's a dream
In the gravy
It's no chore to make your plate clean
In the gravy
Dive for carrots and for peas
In the gravy
Jared Fogle's on his knees
In the gravy, in the gravy, in the gravy (in the gravy)

They want you, they want you
In the gravy
Yes, you can dip your brussel sprouts
In the gravy
Yes, you can flush your taste buds out
In the gravy
Mashed potatoes turn to cream
In the gravy, in the gravy
Dunk your bread like it's a dream
In the gravy
It's no chore to make your plate clean
In the gravy
Dive for carrots and for peas
In the gravy
Jared Fogle's on his knees
In the gravy, in the gravy, in the gravy (in the gravy)

They want you, they want you
They want you in the chicken stew

Who me?

They want you, they want you
In the gravy
Yes, you can dip your brussel sprouts
In the gravy
Yes, you can flush your taste buds out
In the gravy
Mashed potatoes turn to cream
In the gravy, in the gravy
Dunk your bread like it's a dream
In the gravy
It's no chore to make your plate clean
In the gravy
Dive for carrots and for peas
In the gravy
All cooks unite, and pour to please
In the gravy, in the gravy, in the gravy (in the gravy)

They want you, they want you
They want you in the chicken stew

But, but but I am a vegan.
Hey, there cook
Man, I get hungry even spillin' it on my jeans!

They want you, they want you in the gravy

It tastes good, yes.
What am I gonna with this Subway 12 inch?

They want you, they want you in the gravy
