CHICKEN LIPS AND LIZARD HIPS

Original Nancy Cassidy version


Oh, chicken lips and lizard hips and alligator eyes
Monkey legs and buzzard eggs and salamander thighs
Rabbit ears and camel rears and tasty toenail pies
Stir them all together, it's Mama's Soup Surprise

Oh, when I was a little kid, I never liked to eat
Mama put things on my plate, I'd dump them on her feet
But then one day she made this soup, I ate it all in bed
I asked her what she put in it, and this is want she said:

Oh, chicken lips and lizard hips and alligator eyes
Monkey legs and buzzard eggs and salamander thighs
Rabbit ears and camel rears and tasty toenail pies
Stir them all together, it's Mama's Soup Surprise

I went into the bathroom and I stood beside the sink
I said "I'm feeling slightly ill, I think I'd like a drink"
Mama said "I've just the thing, I'll get it in a wink
It's full of lots of protein, and vitamins, I think."

Oh, chicken lips and lizard hips and alligator eyes
Monkey legs and buzzard eggs and salamander thighs
Rabbit ears and camel rears and tasty toenail pies
Stir them all together, it's Mama's Soup Surprise
Stir them all together, it's Mama's Soup Surprise
