The Lyrics

I guess I shoulda closed
Both my eyes before I took the egg
Counted one-two-three

See this is how we play it
First we both select eggs from the
Carton for all to see

Then we each take our turn
Lift them up and smash them on our foreheads
Yours isn't cooked, then you're done

Some folks say I'm way off base
Now I've got egg on my face
And you say, "Babe, omlettin it run"
And that's when I say

Russian egg roulette
Baby the yolk's on me
Russian egg roulette
You've got me whipped, now I've been beat

I guess I should have learned today
When you come out of your shell
You're hard boiled inside

Cause you're messin with my mind
Now all my thoughts are scrambled
And I wonder if my brain must be fried

If yellowy slime
Does trickle down my back
I'll hope for better luck the next batch

As I pick up the last one
Thinking I have this game won
Till you say, "Don't count, your chicks be-fore they hatch!"
Oh yeah

Russian egg roulette
Baby you like it raw (yes you do)
Russian egg roulette
Like Humpty Dumpty, I, head for a fall

Which one should I take (which one should I take)
Who's the rotten egg (who's the rotten egg)
Cause the end is near the pickins are lame (Cause the end is near the pickins are lame)

Eggs running low girl (eggs running low girl)
Choices are few (Choices are few)
And now we're gonna play the ultimate chicken game (And now we're gonna play the ultimate chicken game)

Russian egg roulette
Over all too easy
Russian egg roulette
Don't eat them raw, or you'll be feeling queasy

Russian egg roulette
Momma she must be so proud (Mom is so proud!)
Russian egg roulette
I grab my seat it's time to play more
Russian egg roulette in the next round

(Russian Egg Roulette)
Victory was poached (I said victory was poached)
Don't, don't act like an egghead (Russian egg roulette)
What's under that hard shell (hard shell)
If I could win, now that would be a coup!

Girl, you got huevos like I never seen
They're grade A...
If I could be your bunny
You could be my Easter Egg

Baby, it's just breakfast
Russian egg roulette
Just grab an egg, and smash it on your forehead
(Russian egg roulette)
And watch it drip down (It's gonna drip down)
Russian egg roulette

Now don't be sad, and don't be mad,
We're gonna turn your big frown up sunnyside down (up sunnyside down)
It's gonna drip down (down from your crown)
I run with the crown (a side of hash browns)

Russian egg roulette

Jeff - I've heard that in Imperial Russia, the Czar and his family played this game with Faberge' eggs. Either way, funny parody here. ;D

OMR--the visual of a video with a Russian Czar playing this with Faberge eggs is priceless! Glad you enjoyed :)

DKTOS since I'm at work, but I'll be back with more to say before SOTM ends. even on a free-read, 'off base/egg on my face' and 'up-sunnyside-down' are very punny, I mean funny

(SOTM) This onslaught of puns was incredibly funny and very well-written, and I don't even like eggs! 555!

You always go the eggstra mile with the puns, rhymes and flow. Well done, Jeff!

(SOTM) Really strange topic, but I like strange. Loved the wordplay you had in this one.

Keep egging it on, it's well done on the sunny side of things.
Agrimorfee - March 07, 2016 - Report this comment
Creativity here, even adding more humor via the ad libbing fadeout. Grade A, 555.

Ever since the rise in popularity of Jimmy Fallon doing this game on the Tonight Show, I really want to try it! Still a really funny spoof with so many great puns. Great work!

(Artistry) See above!

(Artistry) I remember reading this one a while ago. I still like how offbeat it is, however, this time around I found the pacing a little harder to follow. Prince speaks in such a way that's hard to emulate, so no knocks there. I still like this a lot! Way to bring back another good one.
