The Lyrics

Ah yes. I remember my first job.
Well I started out as a fast food grunt
Makin' shakes one by one
Then the buns came round and the pickles, dill
I stacked them up, the boss was thrilled

I'm learnin' to fry
All these chicken wings
Grease "em down
Boy, that hot stuff stings

Well, then burgers came, but at first I burned
And the cheese did melt, as I flipped and turned

I'm learnin' to fry
All these chicken eggs
Grease "em down
Boy, I've tired legs

Well, some say work is quite a drag
Pays like crap, and the diners nag
But I'm starting out- I'm just a teen
And I want a car, must get some green

I'm learning to fry for hungry crowds
The order's up, keep it down

I'm learnin' to fry
All these chicken parts
Grease "em down
All the lungs and hearts

I'm learnin' to fry
I'm learnin' to fry
