Great Green Gobs of Greasy, Grimy Gopher Guts Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Great Green Gobs of Greasy, Grimy Gopher Guts” is an old children’s folk song from the United States with disgusting lyrics related to food using the literary device of alliteration; for this reason it’s very popular in school lunchrooms and at summer camps where kids get amused to sing about animal parts and other stuff that is not for eating. As is the case with public domain culture, there are many different versions all over the country.

Dating back to at least the mid-20th century, the song is sung to the tune of “The Old Gray Mare”. It has been performed by Mika Seeger in the Smithsonian Folkways collection of traditional children’s songs “A Fish That’s a Song”. Another amusing version is the 1967 song Great Green Gobs by Tom Glazer where three new verses are added to the traditional chorus.

Lyrics (version 1)

Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
mutilated monkey meat, French fried flamingo feet.
French fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood
and me without my spoon!

Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
mutilated monkey meat, bitty baby birdy feet
French fried eyeballs soaking in a pool of blood,
and me without a spoon!

Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
mutilated monkey meat chopped up birdies’ feet
great big eyeballs, swimming in a Pool of Blood
Gee! I forgot my spoon!

Great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
mutilated monkey meat chopped up parrot feet.
French fried eye balls, swimming in a pool of blood,
eat it without a spoon!

Lyrics (version 2)

Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
mutilated monkey’s meat, concentrated birdie’s feet
a great big jar of all-purpose porpoise pus
and me without a spoon!

Lyrics (Tom Glazer’s  version)

Chorus:
Great, green gobs of greasy, grimy, gopher guts,
Mutilated monkey meat, itty bitty birdie feet.
Great, green gobs of greasy, grimy, gopher guts,
And me without a spoon.

Some people eat hamburger meat while others like potatoes,
And some must chew their Irish stew along with ripe tomatoes.
I can’t understand why in every land, they serve such peculiar dishes.
For wherever I go, they always say “No!” when I tell them what my wish is.
I scream for … (Chorus)

I can pay my way in a French cafe which is big and quite expensive,
Where the diners dine and the wine is fine, but I’m always apprehensive.
When the menu comes, I twiddle my thumbs at the list of fancy dishes:
Caviar and steaks, champagne and cake, is never what my wish is.
I beg for … (Chorus)

In the life to come, I intend to hum this hymn to old Saint Peter:
I won’t need much, when my harp I touch, and become a heavenly eater.
I won’t ask for money or milk and honey, and my voice will never falter
While the trumpets blare on the Golden Stair as I stand at the Shining Altar.
I yell for … (Chorus)
And me without a spoon! Yuck!
