Lyrics

Everything?s Chicken but the Gravy

Chorus:
Everything?s chicken but the gravy (3X)
and there?s some feet sticking out of that.

Went down to the curb the other night,
it was late, I thought I?d get myself a bite;
just past the corner, near the laundromat,
I happened to run into strange-looking cat.
He had on checkered pants and a pinstriped jacket;
he was working on a coconut, trying to crack it.
I said: ?Hey, buddy, where?s a good place to eat??
He looked up,and then he pointed down the street,he
said:
Chorus
I thanked him profusely and went on my way,
a few doors down was the Bird Cafe;
as I got up to it, a lady came out;
She slammed the door, she was wearing a pout.
I thought: ?I?ll ask her, how?s the food??
She seemed to be in a pretty bad mood,
but I asked her anyway. She stared real mean,
she said: ?The service is o.k. and the place is clean,
but:
Chorus
I went inside, and there before my eyes,
was every kind of chicken: there were chicken pot
pies,
arroz con pollo, chicken stew,
southern fried chicken, and vindaloo.
The guy behind the counter had on a dashiki,
his name was Raoul, and the waitress was Kiki.
I ordered chicken sushi with a side of hiziki,
Raoul looked at me like I?d said something freaky, and
said
Chorus
After that night I went there quite a lot;
the Bird Café became my favorite spot
Kiki and I got married last Spring?
We fed all the wedding guests Chicken a la King
We?re moving out of town to a bungalow,
raising free range chickens for the Co-op store.
Now Raoul?s v vegetarian,
but we?ll stick with chicken till we?re octogenarians:
