I've eaten many strange and scrumptious dishes in my time
Like jellied bugs and curried slugs and earwigs cooked in slime
And mice with rice is very nice when they're roasted in their prime
But don't forget to sprinkle them with just a pinch of grime

I'm crazy 'bout mosquitoes on a piece of buttered toast
And pickled spines of porcupines and then a great big roast
And dragon's flesh, quite old, not fresh, it costs a buck at most
(Does it come with gravy?)

It comes to you in barrels if you order it by post
It comes to you in barrels if you order it by post

For dinner on my birthday, shall I tell you what I chose?
Hot noodles made of poodles on a slice of garden hose
And a rather smelly jelly, made of armadillo's toes
The jelly is delicious, but you have to hold your nose

Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach

I crave the tasty tentacles of octopi for tea
I like hot dogs, but I love hot frogs, and surely you'll agree
A plate of soil with engine oil's a super recipe
(Recipe)

I hardly need to mention that it's practically free

Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach

We hardly need to mention that it's practically free

Now comes, my fellow travelers, the burden of my speech
(You show off)
These foods are rare, beyond compare and some right out of reach
(Nice inn commodore)
But there's no doubt I'd go without a million plates of each
(Out of my face)

For one small mite
(One small mite)
One tiny bite
(Tiny bite of this fantastic peach)

Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
Peach, peach, peach, peach, peach, peach
And this fantastic peach
