Tradition is wonderful!

I love teaching my grandkids the things that I enjoyed as a kid. I’m currently teaching my grandson a song that I sang as a youngster and he loves it. I thought he might, it does seem to be a boy’s song.

All I remembered of the song was the line “great big gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts” but thanks to the wonderful Internet, I found the rest of the song. If you have little boys in your life, sing it for them, they love it:

Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Petrefied porpose puss
great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
and me without a spoon
—-

Scab sandwich puss on top
Monkey vomit, camel snot
Parrot eyeballs dipped in glue
Scab sandwich just for you!
—-

(I remember the first part as basically the same)
then ….All wrapped up in all-purpose porpoise pus
and me without my spoon
– but I got my straw (followed loud slurpy noise)
—-

great green gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts,
itty bitty birdie feet,
big fat monkey meat,
luke warm pidgeon puke,
and I forgot my spoon.
——

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Walkin’ down the dirty street
Mutilated monkey meat
Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
And I forgot my spoon!
——

Great big gobs of greasy, grimey gopher guts,
Mutilated monkey meat,
Toasted little birdie’s feet,
French fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood —
And I forgot my spoon! 😦

Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts
Chopped-up monkeys’ feet
Assasinated birdy’s beak
French-fried eyeballs smoked in a bloody pot
That’s what [insert taunted person’s name here] is made of.
—–

Great big gobs of greasy grimey golpher guts
Hairy little piggies’ feet
Mutilated monkey’s meat
All cobbed off with ventilated vulture’s vomit
And I forgot my spoon
I for got my spoon
I forgot my spoon
Great big gobs of Greasy grimey golpher guts
and I forgot my spoon

Great green gobs of greasy, grimy, gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Little dirty birdie feet
French fried eyeballs rolling in a bowl of blood
I forgot my spoon
-But I’ve got my straw
—–

OK..Here’s what I did. I took words from your original post, the 3 other
people that responded, and my own recollection, tried to keep the lyrics
so that they would all fit into the same “tune” that I remember. I’m sure
that this result wasn’t an actual song because it’s a compilation, but,
here goes! John

Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Petrefied porpose puss
Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
And me without a spoon

Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Scab sandwich puss on top
Monkey vomit, camel snot
Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
And me without a spoon

Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Parrot eyeballs dipped in glue
Scab sandwich just for you
Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
And me without a spoon

Great big gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Toasted little birdie’s feet
French fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood
And I forgot my spoon

Great big gobs of greasy grimey golpher guts
Hairy little piggies’ feet
Mutilated monkey’s meat
All cobbed off with ventilated vulture’s puke
And I forgot my spoon


Yep, kids are great, aren’t they? I’m so proud to hear that little boy singing this song with a smile on his face. I put that smile there!

  1. here’s the one I knew when I was younger:

    Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
    Mutilated monkey meat
    Birdies little bloody feet
    One quart jar of all-purpose porpoise puss
    floating in some pink lemonade.

  2. Actually, I rather like your version!
