Firesign Theatre – Rat In A Box lyrics

(Also heard on the Nick Danger "Yolks" video)
When you can't stand the pace
In the Big Rodent Race
'Come on in where it's safe
Where the menu is tref... ###- "tref" means "non-kosher"

There's a smell in the air
That reminds you of hair
You've got something to get
And it looks like your pet!
(aren't you hungry?)
First we take some rat parts
And fry them up real nice..
Then we skin the kitties,
And barbeque the mice!
Guts in a Cup! (Yum!)
Mouse on a Stick! (Wow!)
French-fried Fleas
And Beer-battered Ticks!
Ra-aaat in a box...
(We fry what you won't--)
Ra-aaat in a box...
(We fry what you won't--)
Ra-aaat in a box...
(We fry what you won't... Touch!)
