The Lyrics

Three food-related Mother Goose rhymes are interpreted by a very hungry person.
One, there was this kid who
Sat down in the corner while he ate his pumpkin pie
But when he finally ate it
His thumb went in and pulled out a big plumb
Said, "What a good boy am I"
That pie was so delicious

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

One, there was this girl who
Sat down on her tuffet while she ate her curds and weigh
But when she finally ate it
She saw a spider sit down beside her
It frightened poor Miss Muffet
The curds and weigh were so good

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

All the kids know all these rhymes
They've heard them fifty billion times

And then, there was this egg who
Built himself a wall one day and starting climbing up
But when he finally sat on it
They say that this poor egg had a great fall
And all the King's men couldn't put him back together

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

(Sung over the chord progression from the bridge/outro)
The pie, curds, and eggs I ate

(Continue with the "Yums"/fade out)

Hey, man, is there a reason why you submitted this one twice?

Like the song, but it's "whey," not "weigh."

Excuse me, Excuse Me, but I probably forgot to mention that the server was busy when I submitted the parody. If you want to comment or vote, this is the one to vote in as of the end of the sentence I am typing right now. Did you at least enjoy my parody?

Yes, I did. By the way, I'm the one who commented as "Excuse Me", so you can delete my above comment.
