Fat and weak what a disgrace.
Guess the champ got too lazy.
ain't goin' to fly now.
He's just taking up space.
Sold his gloves, threw his eggs down the drain.

But he's no bum he works down the street.
he bought the neighbourhood deli
Back on his feet now he's chopping up meat.
Come inside maybe you'll hear him say:

try the rye or the kaiser
they're our special tonight
if you want you can have an appetiser
You might like a salami and the liver's alright
And they'd really go well with the rye or the kaiser

Never eats while on the job
he heard it's good to stay hungry
but he makes a pretty mean shishkebab
have a taste they were made fresh today

try the rye or the kaiser
or the wheat or the white
maybe i can suggest an appetizer
stay away from the tuna it smells funny tonight
but you just can't go wrong with the rye or the kaiser

So today his deli comes first
Steady dreams of his past days of glory
goes in the back and beats up on the liverwurst
all the while you can still hear him say

It's the rye or the kaiser
it's the thrill of one bite
let me please be you catering advisor
If you want substitutions I won't put up a fight
You can have your roast beef on the rye or the kaiser

the rye or the kaiser

the rye or the kaiser
