I've been leaving on my things
So in the morning when the morning bird sings
There's still dinner on my dinner jacket
'Til the dinner bell rings

Experimental dog, salivating dog, good dog
Waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell, dinner bell ring

I've been leaving on my things
So in the morning when the morning bird sings
There's still dinner on my dinner jacket
'Til the dinner bell rings

I don't want a pizza, I don't want a piece of peanut brittle
I don't want a pear, I don't want a bagel, I don't want a bean
I wouldn't like a bag of beef or a beer or a cup of chowder
Corn, cake, or creamed cauliflower
'Cause I'm waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell dinner bell ring

Shoulder, bicep, elbow, arm
Forearm, thumb, wrist, knuckle, palm
Middle, pinky, index, ring
Dinner bell, dinner bell ding

I don't know whether I'd rather be having a bottle of vinegar
I don't know whether I'd rather be having an egg
I don't know whether I'd rather be having an order of bacon
Or whether I'd rather be having a basket of garlic bread
I don't know whether I'd rather be having some pie or saving my appetite
'Cause I'm waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell dinner bell ring

I've been leaving on my things
So in the morning when the morning bird sings
There's still dinner on my dinner jacket
'Til the dinner bell does the bell thing
Dinner bell, dinner bell, do the bell thing
I'm waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell, dinner bell ding, ding, ding

Waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell, dinner bell ding, ding, ding
Waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell, dinner bell ding
