The Lyrics

When I got the job I was overjoyed
KFC - I'm employed
Not to burn myself did require much skill
Of hot grease I'd soon have my fill

I'm learning to fry the thighs, legs and wings
Wond'rin' why there's no onion rings

E-leven secret, spices and herbs
Is what people eat out there in the 'burbs

I'm learning to fry all manner of things
Not convinced these are chicken wings

I asked the boss and he just frowned
"Just ensure in grease they're drowned"
"You just fry them up - put the tray there"
"But then past that point you should not care"

I'm learning to lie - pleasin' the crowds:
'Healthiest meal in town'

I'm learning to fry but this job sure stinks
Splatterin' grease makes a nasty sting
I'm learning to fry - scorched my skin
Swear I won't eat chicken again

I'm learning to fry
I'm learning to fry
