I'm Working on the Food Chain (Mark Graham) I'm working on the food chain, and I'm looking for a bite to chew Out here on the food chain, and I'm telling you, boys, it's true You are what you eat, and you also are what eats you. At the top of the food chain, and you've got yourself a mighty fine view Of a little old chicken for a little old chicken stew A ten-foot rooster with teeth and a shotgun would be looking down at you. I've got a food-chain mama, and my baby she draws the line At munching on a morsel that was walkin' or swimmin' or flyin' But if I was a bean sprout, she'd be no friend of mine. Well I don't like bean sprouts, but a pork chop suites me fine Just put it in a skillet, and get that little old pork chop fryin' Out here on the food chain, you either diet, die or dine. I'm working on the food chain, and I'm looking for a bite to chew Out here on the food chain, and I'm telling you, boys, it's true When you're working on the food chain, the food chain's working on you.
