I Like Toast (song from Chicago's Bob & Tom Show. This performance by Camp Fitch)

all around the country coast to coast,
people always say what do you like most,
I don't wanna brag i don't wanna boast,
I always tell 'em I like toast.

yeah TOAST (yeah TOAST)

i get up in the mornin' bout six AM,
have a little jelly have a little jam,
take a piece of bread put it in the slot,
push down the lever and the wires gets hot,
i get toast.

yeah TOAST (yeah TOAST)

now there's no secret to toasting perfection,
there's a dial on the side and you make your selection,
push to the dark or the light and then,
if it pops too soon press down again,
make toast.

yeah TOAST (yeah TOAST)

when the first caveman drove in from the drags,
didn't know what would go with the bacon and the eggs,
must have been a genius got it in his head,
plug the toaster in the wall,
buy a bag of bread,
make toast.

yeah TOAST (yeah TOAST)

oui monsieur bonjour coquette,
uh huh croissante vous a ver,
maurice chevalier effeil tower,
oh oui maria bagette bon soir,

You're neither up nor down.

Old Lady Leary not an action song, but fun
Late one night, when we were all in bed,
Old Lady Leary lit the lantern in the shed,
And when the cow kicked it over, she winked her eye and said,
“There’ll be a hot time in the ol’ town tonight!”
FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

Ten nights dark, when bed we were all in,
Old Leary lady hung the shed her lantern in,
And when the kick cowed it over, she eyed her wink and said,
"There'll be a town hot in the time ol' tonight!"
IFER! IFER! IFER!
