And crowd the kitchen floor,                                                     And eat a lot of beans

We can't get near the door,                                                       We're bursting at the seams--

We're packed so close together                                                I'm squished into a corner by a

And a passing pot of chili                                                          I'd like to know my relatives,

Is burning my behind!                                                                But not as well as that!

 

 

 

 

                 Let's all go to Lucy's--

                      "We're really glad you're here!"

                 Let's all go to Lucy's--

                  "Oh, have another beer!"

                  My belly is distended

                      My bladder's like a rock,

                                       But the line for the bathroom stretches

                        Halfway down the block!

 

 

 

 

Let's all go to Lucy's                                                               Let's all go to Lucy's

To air political views.                                                                And celebrate the child--

Let's all go to Lucy's                                                                 Let's all go to Lucy's

You greens and reds and blues--                                               Where children can run wild.

We've got loonies, kooks, and wackos, and                              I'm plowing through a pile of kids

No one is talking sense,                                                            It's prompting me to state:

'Cause the well-informed and moderate ones                             We need some different hobbies

Are sitting on the fence!                                                            Besides to procreate!

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                                               Let's all go to Lucy's

                                                                                                                       With yours and mine and ours  

                                                                                                                              Let's all go to Lucy's

                                                                                                                      They'll scream and shriek for hours--

                                                                                                                           But when you are leaving

                                                                                                                            You really, really ought

                                                                                                                          To take home an equal number

                                                                                                                           Of children that you brought!

                                                                                                                    [That's "No Child Left Behind" Marquez-style!]

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                                                                            (slower)

Let's all go to Lucy's                                                                 We've all been to Lucy's

It's getting very late                                                                   It really was a treat.

Let's all go to Lucy's                                                                 We've all been to Lucy's

I can't see my own plate.                                                           And had too much to eat--

I drain the contents of my cup                                                   We really ate our fill outside

And suddenly I find                                                                   But find out the next day

A cocktail of tequila,                                                                 That mosquitoes have

    Baby formula,                                                                             Reunions too.......

                                                                        And lime!                                                                          And WE were the buffet!
