The Lyrics

We are young
Outside McDonalds we stand
No vegetables, nothing bland
Lunch is a Happy Meal

We make noise, better not take us to Roy's
Search through the box for the toys
All of us knowing
Lunch is a Happy Meal

I'm begging you to go, you're making me stay
Why is your cooking so bad?
Would it help if you knew
I won't whine on the way, cause it's the best food I've had
Believe me, it's greasy, the best you can buy
Cause I need those nuggets, and an order of fries

We are young
Outside McDonalds we stand
No vegetables, nothing bland
Lunch is a Happy Meal

We make noise, better not take us to Roy's
Search through the box for the toys
All of us knowing
Lunch is a Happy Meal

The arches are gold
And Ronald will say, why don't you come on inside?
And when I get old, will I still get to play
Or will I just supersize?
But if we wait much longer, I could start to cry
And if you keep me happy, you know what to buy

We are young
Outside McDonalds we stand
No vegetables, nothing bland
Lunch is a Happy Meal

We make noise, better not take us to Roy's
Search through the box for the toys
All of us knowing
Lunch is a Happy Meal

I always vote first, then go back and comment. I think some people get so caught up in commenting, they forget to vote...

(ABC) DKTOS, Jeff...but it looks as if I'm missing out on a good parody. Reads well anyway.

(ABC) Liked the line "And when I get old will I still get to play?" I've snuck down the slide in the McDonald's kids play area a couple of times! ;-)

very pertinent commentary on a controversial subject ... have you seen the movie yet????
Jeff Reuben - July 27, 2004 - Report this comment
I only try to do the really serious subjects =) Martha, haven't seen the movie yet...that's the one where someone lives on McDonald's food for 30 days and has serious health problems, right? Kind of the anti-Jared from Subway.

Holy Toledo - I didn't realise you'd done one so similar too, Jeff - and actually Lunch fits better too - in fact I like yours better overall - d'OH! - 555 :-)

That was really great! Sadly, I love that song, but that parody was fantastic- I have to show all my friends now.
Jeff Reuben - July 21, 2006 - Report this comment
Thanks Lisa! There is an awful recording of it up here as well (I'll have to try to redo it):
