lyrics

Well we're all impressed
with how quickly you've progressed.
You figured out that guitars are made of wood
and that comes from a plant.
So you think you can eat it, but you can't.

No matter how big you are,
no matter how tough you are,
no matter how hungry you are,
you still can't eat my guitar.

You can eat your shoe
like Charlie Chaplin tried to do
back in the gold rush in black and white.
Those guys were hungry all right.

In a Blondie song
that guy's appetite was mighty strong.
He ate guitars and some cars and bars.
But that guy was from Mars.

No matter how big you are,
no matter how tough you are,
no matter how hungry you are,
you still can't eat my guitar.

If I were paying attention to you biting my guitar
instead of making light of how you're biting my guitar
I would have recognized the poisons that reside in my guitar.
It's very old.
Back in the day,
they made guitars a different way,
with aresenic and mercury and PCBs and lead,
killing all those delicate baby brain cells in your head
and there goes our Nobel Prize.

No matter how big you are,
no matter how strong you are,
no matter how hungry you are,
you still can't eat my guitar.

No matter how big you are,
no matter how determined you are,
no matter how hungry you are,
you still can't eat my guitar.
