The Lyrics

Just so you know, "jelly" is supposed to be pronounced like "jellay" to go with the pacing of the song lol. Toast with butter and jam is something my husband got me into. At first I thought it would be disgusting but the salty and sweet flavour really appealed to me :)
*Upbeat music*
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4!

*Music*

They were open full time, from 9 to 9
I wanted something to eat
Jams, they had several kinds
I could choose so leisurely

I had at home close to nothing
Want something different from the day before
That's when I saw it, mmm I saw it
Sat in a glass jar, glass jar

I want some
Strawberry jelly
The kind you buy in a grocery store
Strawberry jelly
Toast that is warm, smeared with yummy jam
Strawberry jelly
I know I love it!

Craved like it was
Gets on my nerves, I'm hungry
Oh, I plan to eat, its awesome charm
So, see here
I put it in the cart
And I went to buy it
Went back to my own house to munch

I eat now, the taste rouses my tongue
Something about the mix of jam and marg'rine
The day is so bright
The toast I could smell as the mixture hits me
My tongue really got its kicks

I want some
Strawberry jelly
The kind you buy in a grocery store
Strawberry jelly
Toast that is warm, smeared with yummy jam
Strawberry jelly
I know I love it!

It's a pain and I may seem like a goof
And the grocers stare at you wondering who are
Blocking it out hope that my craving ceased
You feel like you are really starved

Listen
The first time you try might not be the greatest
But I tell you
Give it a chance to try it just once and maybe again
It tastes so good
'Cause it's yummy on toast
With a jam as fine as it is, yum

Strawberry jelly
The kind you buy (The kind you buy)
The kind you buy
Oh toast, toast
(Strawberry jelly)
(Toast that is warm)
Like to slather it with some yummy jam
Yum (Strawberry jelly)
OWWWW!

I know I, I know I, I know I want some

Strawberry jelly
Toast, toast, toast
Toast, toast, toast (The kind you buy)
In a grocery store
Strawberry jelly
Yummy
Where has all my strawberry jelly gone? (Toast that is warm it's)
Slathered with yummy jam
Strawberry jelly
Enjoy. This parody was sort of hard to write, to try to match the pacing but enjoy.
