Lyrics

We leave in the dark as quiet as a mouse
The sun comes up at The Waffle House
It's Dunkin' Donuts about 10:30 Lots of cholesterol but we ain't worried
Then it's lunch at Mickey D's A truck stop burrito at quarter to three
We nibble on Fritos and Raisinettes We check the clock is it suppertime yet?

C:
Eatin' on the road eatin' on the road
We're drivin' all night and we're puttin' on a load
We can't stop eatin' 'cause we gotta stay awake
Burgers and tacos and supersize shakes
We'll gain ten pounds from this trip we gotta do
Gonna look like donuts before we're through

It's time for supper so we go inside Long John Silver's it's all deep fried
We ate some fish so "What could it hurt?"
Dairy Queen that's our desert
Then back in the car 'til half past nine We need caffeine so it's Starbuck's time
That'll keep us goin' til midnight or more
But just in case we got chips on the floor

2C:
Eatin' on the road eatin' on the road
We're drivin' all night and we're puttin' on a load
We can't stop eatin' 'cause we gotta stay awake
Twinkies and snowballs and little chocolate cakes
We'll gain twenty pounds from this trip we gotta do
We're gonna be Big Macs before we're through

Now it's two in the morning We're startin'' to drag
So we grab some pork rinds from out of the bag
We munch and I crunch 'til the whole thing's gone
We get rocks in our stomachs 'til just about dawn
We chew some Tums and hope they really work
We sip on Pepsi 'cause that'll make us burp
We stagger from the car in the morning light
We ate like pigs but we made it through the night

3C:
Eatin' on the road eatin' on the road
We're drivin' all night and we're puttin' on a load
We can't stop eatin' 'cause we gotta stay awake
Our pants are tight our belts will break
We'll gain thirty pounds from this trip we gotta do
We're Goodyear Blimp before we're through

4C:
Eatin' on the road eatin' on the road
We're drivin' all night and puttin' on a load
When we get home it's always nice and quiet
We sleep all day and go on diets
We eat real healthy Granola's our friend
'Til we go back out there and do it all again
