Randy Newman Eating The Peach Lyrics

Last updated: 06/28/2012 11:00:00 AM

I've eaten many strange and scrumptious dishes in my time
Like jellied bugs and curried slugs and earwigs cooked in slime
And mice with rice is very nice
When they're roasted in their prime
But don't forget to sprinkle them with just a pinch of grime

I'm crazy 'bout mosquitos on a piece of buttered toast
And pickled spines of porcupines
And then a great big roast
And dragon's flesh, quite old, not fresh
It costs a buck at most
It comes to you in barrels if you order it by post
(It comes to you in barrels if you order it by post)

For dinner on my birthday shall I tell you what I chose?
Hot noodles made of poodles on a slice of garden hose
And a rather smelly jelly
Made of armadillo's toes
The jelly is delicious, but you have to hold your nose

Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach

I crave the tasty tentacles of octopi for tea
I like hot dogs, but I love hot frogs
And surely you'll agree
A plate of soil with engine oil's a super recipe
(Recipe)
I hardly need to mention that it's practically free

Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
We hardly need to mention that it's practically free

Now comes, my fellow travelers, the burden of my speech
These foods are rare beyond compare
And some right out of reach
But there's no doubt I'd go without
A million plates of each
For one small mite
(One small mite)
One tiny bite
(Tiny bite)
Of this fantastic peach!

Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
This fantastic peach!
