They Might Be Giants – Dinner Bell lyrics

Lyrics taken from

    This song seems to be the thoughts of a dog in the test where they rang the bell, then gave the dog food. After repeating the test several times, they found that when the bell rang, the dog's mouth began to salivate, even when it wasn't given any food. (i have derived this information from the lines describing the different foods going through the dog's mind, as well as the lines "experimental dog/salivating dog/good dog".
