The Lyrics

Still working on my burger, still working on my fries
Got no time for lunch, so I eat while I drive
Dinner's been cancelled on account of workin' late
I can have a four course meal with my foot on the brake

Eatin' and a drivin' (eatin')
Drivin' and a eatin' (drivin')
Eatin' and a drivin', drivin' and a eatin'
Ain't lookin' where I'm drivin' 'coz I'm watchin' what I'm eatin'

Got no time for digestion cause I really gotta work
Saving 10 from my breaktime gives me overtime perks
At 80 miles per hour, I can put away the meat
And still have time for leftovers, eating carrots off the seat

Drivin' and a eatin' (drivin')
Eatin' and a drivin' (eatin')
Drivin' and a eatin', eatin' and a drivin'
Ain't watchin' what I'm eating 'coz I'm lookin' where I'm drivin'

ooh drivin' and a eatin'
ooh this sirloin needs reheatin'
ooh eatin' and a drivin'
ooh the spaghetti don't stop windin'

Pork chops and lo mein go down without a fight
Munchin' on a pizza slidin' through a yellow light
Drivin' on the streets, slurpin' sundaes without haste
If a cop pulls me over, I'll offer him a taste

Eatin' and a drivin' (eatin')
Drivin' and a bleedin' (bleedin'?
Bleedin' and a drivin'
Dyin' and a bleedin'
Don't know why I ain't movin', some truck turned me into puddin'

ooh got turned into puddin'
ooh got intestines mixed with noodlins

The autopsy's confusing
'Coz mac and brains got wounded
My stomach's right beside me
'Coz I fed it going 90
