Chicken Lips And Lizard Hips (Springsteen Bruce)

(J.& N. Cassidy) When I was a little kid I never liked to eat Mom would put things on my plate And I'd dump 'em 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 what 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 'em all together And it's mama's soup surprise" I went into the bathroom And I stood beside the sink I said, "I'm feeling slightly ill And 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 'em all together And it's mama's soup surprise"
