The Lyrics

Here comes Johnny stirring up some onions
We wanna a luau, baby what you say?
here comes Johnny singin' I got some ginger
Peanut oil frying, I'm a chef today
He got the apron, he got the pepper
yeah, the boy can cook
Little snow peas, water chestnuts
Turning around in the kitchen each way

He do the recipe he got from his grandmother
He hopes that he'll impress his wife
He do the wok, he do the wok of life

Here comes Johnny and he's slicing the beef thin
He's got on his cookin' shoes
Here come Johnny with the shrimp in a tin
Got those horseradish blues
He got the apron, he got the soy sauce
Yeah, the boy can cook
Slicing peppers, sipping Merlot
He's got em all, those gourmet clues

He do the recipe he got from his grandmother
He hopes that he'll impress his wife
He do the wok, he do the wok of life

Here comes Johnny slicing up some onions
We wanna a luau, baby what you say?
Here comes Johnny singin' I got some bok choy
Peanut oil fryin, I'm a chef today
He got the apron, he got the garlic
Yeah, the boy can cook
Little snow peas, water chestnuts
Turning around in the kitchen each way

And after all the folks have done their eatin'
There's just some dishes in the bubbles, says his wife:
"Please clean the wok, please clean the wok up right."

Eggsellent OS choice Royce. Say, would you mind driving the ( coincidental ) 555 miles to cook for me sometime? I'll clean the dishes.
