Greasy Grit Gravy

(Shel Silverstein)

Mama, mama, me oh my

I don't want no catfish eyes


I don't want no lizard spleens

Gimme greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.



Greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens


Big fat pie and mobo beans

Make you wanna split your jeans

Eatin' greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.


Hey Marie will you be mine

I'm gonna take you out to dine

We're gonna live beyond our means

Eatin' greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.


I kissed my wife and sold the baby

A goin' off to join the navy

All they eat on submarines

Is greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.


Greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens

Big fat pie and mobo beans

Make you wanna split your jeans

Eatin' greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.

Me and little English Alice

We went down to Buckingham Palace

Walked in on the King and Queen

Eatin' greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.



Greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens

Big fat pie and mobo beans

Make you wanna split your jeans

Eatin' greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.


Doctor, doctor, help me please

I'm neurotic as I can be

I keep doin' it in my dreams

Oh, greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.


Dixie Bell she's southern fried

She don't want no champagne wine

You wanna get into her jeans

Give her greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens.


Greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens

Big fat pie and mobo beans

Make you wanna split your jeans

Eatin' greasy grit gravy and gizzard greens..

It's actually fairly old ... if you're familiar with Dr. Hook at all, the doctor is Ray Silverstein. Shel (the author of this, and a lot of Dr. Hook songs) is his brother. The tune is classic, 3 chord country, and borrowed from another song, which I can't bring to mind. Maybe someone else will know :)
