Gravy and Rice

Parody of the song "18 and Life" by Skid Row.

Ricky was a young boy
Had taste buds made of stone
Lived in a bachelor suite
And ate all his meals alone
Just couldnít find someone
Who loved the food he loved
They all wanted sushi
Sandwiches, pizza, or cheap pub grub
He had no interest
Ooh not for that trash
Yes he only liked one thing
Canít believe you had to ask

Of course itís...

Gravy and rice, you want it
Gravy and rice in a bowl
Your tummy's growliní and itís
Gravy and rice in your soul
Gravy and rice, you want it
Gravy and rice in a bowl
Your tummy's rumbliní and itís
Gravy and rice to go...

That gravy in his heartbeat
His veins burned Uncle Benís
It kept his body moving
But it never made him friends
He didnít like McDonaldís
Rickyís the weird one
He always skipped dessert
Never wanted to have fun
Yum yum, in his tum
Always gravy and rice
You canít think of other foods
When that combo tastes so nice

Of course itís...

Gravy and rice, you want it
Gravy and rice in a bowl
Your tummy's growliní and itís
Gravy and rice in your soul
Gravy and rice, you want it
Gravy and rice in a bowl
Your tummy's rumbliní and itís
Gravy and rice to go...

Rickyís mamma told him heíd need veggies and fruit
So he left home when he was 12
Itís no wonder heís such a strange dude...

Gravy and rice, you want it
Gravy and rice in a bowl
Your tummy's growliní and itís
Gravy and rice in your soul
Gravy and rice, you want it
Gravy and rice in a bowl
Your tummy's rumbliní and itís
Gravy and rice to go...
