The Lyrics

From The Album "The Self Titled Debut Album"
I got a coupon, a special
I head right for the plate
Some rice and some chicken
I drooled on the case
The waiter said right to me
You're such a disgrace
Eleven eggrolls, some noodles
The crab rague was good
Egg fu young and kimchi
I'd get more if I could, keep eating, and eating
I'll be hungry soon, yet again

Tempted to go back to the buffet
Tempted but I'm so full there's no way
I can eat some more, passed out on the floor
I'm forced to pay
Tempted to go back to the buffet
Tempted but I'm so full there's no way

I'm on the toilet, the crapper, chunderland hotel
The Chinese food keeps flowing
Ain't feeling quite so well
I went back to the table
I got two meals on the bill
Took my napkin, cleaned the table, and even took the fork
They tell me that they're closing
I'm yearning for some pork
And crab legs, Maybe pudding, I want liver chops

Tempted to go back to the buffet
Tempted but I'm so full there's no way
I can eat some more, passed out on the floor
I'm forced to pay
Tempted to go back to the buffet
Tempted but I'm so full there's no way

I got a discount
Some chopsticks
A fortune cookie too
I put them out of business
Now they sell tattoos
A new buffet has opened
This the day they'll rue

Tempted to go back to the buffet
Tempted but I'm so full there's no way
I can eat some more, passed out on the floor
I'm forced to pay
Tempted to go back to the buffet
Tempted but I'm so full there's no way

(SOTM) DKTOS - I saw an episode on COPS once where a guy refused to leave a Chinese buffet. "You been here four hour, you go now you no come back". This parody reminded me of that.

(SOTM) I'm off of chinese food for a month.

(SOTM) This parody (and Guy's comment) reminds me of comedian John Pinette's routine about Chinese buffets, when the maitre'd yells at Pinette, "YOU GO, NOW!" :)

(SOTM) While we're on the subject of this parody reminding us of stuff, I just say "AARRRH, that be no man but an eatin' machine!" Phully phat parody, MysteryGoat.

If thereĀ's a theme to be found on the SOTM smorgasbord of january it must be health problems...

(SOTM) DKTOS, but it made for interesting and filling reading. :D

Wow, can't believe so many DKTOSs. Very good; liked the tattoo line best.

I love Squeeze (I just did a parody a few days ago that no one knew.) I find it incredible that this was their biggest hit, since Glen Tilbrook is such a great singer, and this one is almost the only one he doesn't sing. You did great with it.

(SOTM) DKTOS, but I loved this :-)

I liked the tattoo bit best too. Nice work, Magical Mystery Goat. And ask Rick if he's ever been tempted by the flute of another.

DKTOS, I'm afraid - but I enjoy the all-you-can-eat Chinese food buffets as much as I enjoyed this offering :-)

(SOTM) "chunderland hotel" is frikkin' genius.

I'm not sure how kimchi slipped into a Chinese food buffet, but I liked the tattoo verse and the whole parody.

SOTM - DKTOS (this seems to be a recurring statement) but i can relate to the topic

You too fat, you go home now. No eat my restaurant. It not say 'all you can eat', it say 'all ewe can eat', and ewes no eat much. Hehe nothing like neverending crab-legs to bring friends together, good one MG.

You complained in the January SOTM voting thread about the number of people who DKTOS on this one. And then in the ABC'05 A Round, you said DKTOS on *14* of the 16 other entries, including such obscurities as Let it Be. THE BEATLES' LET IT BE!!!

Do they not have radio where you're from? Just curious.

Don't listen to The Beatles dude, sorry.
