Lyrics

Blowfish for Breakfast

What’s this I’m eating
Can you tell me please?
In English dear Sir
I don’t speak Japanese

Will it give me the mud butt
Or some rare disease
What’s this I’m eating,
Can you tell me please?

Blowfish for breakfast
That’s fugu you’re told
Drop of its poison
You’ll never grow old
Never pay taxes
Never sell ‘em your soul
Blowfish for breakfast
You’ll never grow old

Tastes just like chicken
I know that sounds dumb
My lips I’d be licking
But they have gone numb

A tingle, a tickle
It’s really not bad
A man with a frown
Asks how many I’ve had

Blowfish for breakfast
That’s fugu you’re told
Drop of its poison
You’ll never grow old
Never pay taxes
Never sell ‘em your soul
Blowfish for breakfast
You’ll never grow old

Years to learn how
Too late for that now
You’re dying
What’s that strange sensation?
An endless vacation?
You’re flying

Can’t seem to breath
But it was quite delish
Not a great white
But one hell of a fish

Tetrodotoxin
Will soon paralyze
Blowfish for breakfast
Will be my demise

Blowfish for breakfast
That’s fugu you’re told
Drop of its poison
You’ll never grow old
Never pay taxes
Never sell ‘em your soul
Blowfish for breakfast
You’ll never grow old

What’s this I’m eating
Can you tell me please?
In English dear Sir
I don’t speak Japanese
