The Lyrics

I ain't gonna eat this meal
I don't like the way it's tasting
I ain't taking a bite
No matter what you say
It's on the tip of my tongue
But it ain't getting past it
I'm gonna spit it back out
And wash the taste away

It's gonna take a lot of butter
Just to get this (to go) down my throat
Gonna take a lot of butter
Running all across the plate
Gonna smother the potatoes
The fried greens, and the casserole
Gonna take a lot of butter
To wash the taste away

Well, I wish I had a pizza
A burger with fries, or an ice cream cone
Or maybe I would rather
Have a steak, fresh from the grill
There wouldn't be no problem
Cause the taste would simply be divine
I could eat all day
And (I) never would skip a meal

It's gonna take a lot of butter
Just to get this (to go) down my throat
Gonna take a lot of butter
Running all across the plate
Gonna smother the potatoes
The fried greens, and the casserole
Gonna take a lot of butter
To wash the taste away

You feed me pinto beans
And collard greens
Pile spinach on my plate
You give me Brussels sprouts
Sauerkraut
And ya wonder why I'm losing weight?!

It's gonna take a lot of butter
Just to get this (to go) down my throat
Gonna take a lot of butter
Running all across the plate
Gonna smother the potatoes
The fried greens, and the casserole
Gonna take a lot of butter
To wash the taste away
