All U Can Eat

Original Artist: Ben Folds

Son; look at all the people in this restaurant
What do you think they weigh?
And out the window to the parking lot,
At their SUVs taking all of the space

They give no fuck;
They talk as loud as they want
They give no fuck;
Just as long as there's enough for them.

Gonna get on the microphone down at Wal-Mart
Talk about some shit that's been on my mind
Talk about the state of this great nation of ours
People, look to you left, yeah, look to your right.

They give no fuck;
They buy as much as they want.
They give no fuck;
Just as long as there's enough for them.

So I'm looking at the people lining up for plastic
Wouldn't you like to see them in the National Geographic?
Squatting bare-assed in the dirt eating rice from a bowl
With a towel on their head and maybe a bone in their nose.

See that asshole with the peace sign on his license plate?
Giving me the finger and running me out of his lane?
God made us number one cause he loves us the best.
Well maybe he should go bless someone else for a while, give us a rest.

(They give no)
Yeah, and everyone can see
(They give no)
We've eaten all that we can eat.
