I like to eat lovely things, lovely things all day.
I want to eat lovely things in a lovely way.
Lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely things for you.
I think you might love to eat something lovely, lovely too.
Yes, I think you might like to eat something lovely, too.

I think we all might enjoy
to eat something quite nice.
Have you considered mice and something frozen in some rice?
I think that it might quench your thirst if you would give it chance.
And if you like it, I can bring some more over from France
Yes, if you like it I’ll bring more from France.

Have you considered locusts? They are a kosher, kosher dish.
I think they might like taste quite like something crunchy in a dish.
They are really nice to snack on, if they have eaten crops.
But not if they have scoured flesh from rocks, not from rocks.
Do not eat them if they’ve scoured flesh from rocks.

I think you might’ve confus’d something like locusts with a bunch
of nasty slimy critters coming over from space.
The space critters want to eat us and I am pretty sure
that it will be sad when they’re out the door, out the door.
It will be quite sad when they are out the door.

I think you might like to eat something that is not moving.
I don’t eat moving food and I have heard that it can sting.
Well, at least if it has a stinger or a tail swash
or perhaps claws to poke and grip your tongue, tonsils and such.
Perhaps if it has claws to poke and to crunch.
