I'll have some clam chowder followed by beef steak on rye
Pumpkin pie, whipped cream and coffee
I wanna green salad on the side, don't forget the French fries
Pizza pie, garlic and anchovies

I keep burning up calories
As fast as I keep putting them down
Eat food, put it in my mouth
Chew it up, swallow it down

I'll have two eggs, over light, homemade apple pie
Cole slaw as a side order
I gotta stay fit, stay alive
Eat food to sustain a non-stop high-grade performer

The pace is continual
Sure keeps running me down
Don't you know that you gotta eat food?
Don't you know that you gotta refuel?

I'm a maximum consumption, super-grade performer
High powered machine
Go steady on my clutch, go easy on the hills
And you'll get a lot of mileage out of me
I'm so easy to drive and I'm an excellent ride

Hey baby, [Incomprehensible] need to talk

Excessive living sure keeps running me down
You've got to learn to use the maximum juice
That's how you get the maximum use

Life keeps using me, keeps on abusing me
Mentally and physically
I gotta stay fit, stay alive, need fuel inside
Eat food to survive

Maximum consumption sure keeps running me down
Don't you know that you gotta eat food?
Don't you know that it's good for you?

I'm a maximum consumption
Non-stop machine
Total automation, perpetual motion
