The Lyrics

Don't know why,
They contrived up that soup of the day,
What this soup I see called celery?
My money spend,
I'd just like to have some stew with my,
Dinner, that all, with a glass of wine.
Ala carte OK?
I just want a little bowl of stew,
Is there nothing that you can do?

If I can't have stew,
I'll take hominy with gravy,
If I can't have stew, uh-huh, oh,
If I can't have stew,
I'll take hominy and gravy,
If I can't have stew, uh-ho.

Soup's a no, is there something battered you could fry?
Or some meat ball,
Cooked greasily,
That stew I'd love,
Some greens to savor sounds good too,
Hey but off the cuff, I'd like some stew,
Is there nothing that you can do?

If I can't have stew,
I'll take hominy with gravy,
If I can't have stew, uh-huh, oh,
If I can't have stew,
I'll take hominy and gravy,
If I can't have stew, uh-ho.

If I can't have stew,
I'll take hominy with gravy,
If I can't have stew, uh-huh, oh,
If I can't have stew,
I'll take hominy and gravy,
If I can't have stew, uh-ho.
