It Tastes Like Chicken

from Dr. Des Moines by Skyscape



It tastes like chicken
Oh, I like chicken

Well, I can contend
That it tastes like chicken to me
But my buddies all pretend
That this life’s artificial meat
Is it bread?
Is it life?
Is it plain or full of spice?

It tastes like chicken
Oh, I like

We all live under one big sun
Each day we all rise to greet it
Everybody picks his or her nose
Some people even eat it
Everybody farts sometimes, my friends
Everybody belches
And everybody’s shit smells just as bad
As everybody else’s

Well, it tastes like chicken to me
On a Tuesday sour sweet
Are there hidden innuendos in the KFC?
Now my head
Is extra crispy
But your extra-crispy politics
Are too right-wing for me

I’d like to teach the world to think
In perfect harmony
I’d like to buy the world a clue
’Cause who knows more than me?

It tastes like chicken
Oh, I
Oh, I
Oh, I love chicken
