The Lyrics

I’m cookin’
Natural products
I grow my
Own potatoes
Unrefined, not fancy
Steak up? I can’t eat you

Here in my restaurant
Whoahoho
I got some wild, wild rice
I got some greens to sell you
Whoahoho
And lots of wild, wild rice
Here comes the hostess in charge
Whoahoho
She’s pluggin’ wild, wild rice
Ain’t that the way it should be?
Ho ha!
Eatin’ wild, wild rice

You wrestle with your conscience
You wrestle with that menu
Gnawin’ on a carrot stick, and your
Waistline will notgrow more

Check out our new business lunch
Calories low
From all the wild, wild rice
Vegetarian for a change
Get it to go
Take out some wild, wild rice
Bake it up lots of tofu in store
And stilll more wild, wild rice
I know that’s the way I like it
We grow
Lots of wild wild rice

Orange rind?
Coffee cake?
Jelly roll?
You get a pie anytime you like

Like eatin’ at moms, we’ll feed you
It’s from the heart, it’s all terrific

Sleep it off, the stuff you ate
Yaw-aw-awn
So much wild, wild rice
Check-a please, I’m checkin’ out
Must go
I ate that wild, wild rice
Ate it all with honey and thyme
Oh, no no
Ate too much wild, wild rice
We wanna dine, where we dine, where we dine
Let’s go-oh
Where they serve wild, wild rice
I love it, that’s where it’s at
Oh oh
Swim in wild, wild rice
It’s a fixture, here in the city
We go go
To nosh on wild, wild rice
You’ll grow so tall, but not too fast
You mofo
Wild wild….
I know that’s the way you like it
For sho, sho
Eatin’ wild wild wild rice

Um, can I substitute some taboulle for the wild rice? Great work to an OS I haven't heard in a while, but still know by heart. 555

I used to sing this OS in a cover band I was with in the '80s. Got an email from John Small today. Haven't chatted with him, nor you, for that matter, in some time now. Keep at it, Rick!
