Eat the tables, the chairs, the napkins, who cares?

Everybody Eats When They Come To My House
Cab Calloway

Have a banana, Hannah
Try the salami, Tommy
Get with the gravy, Davy
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Try a tomato, Plato
Here’s cacciatore, Dory
Taste the bologna, Tony
Everybody eats when they come to my house

I fix your favorite dishes
Hopin’ this good food fills ya
Work my hands to the bone in the kitchen alone
You better eat if it kills ya

Pass me a pancake, Mandrake
Have an hors d’oeuvre-y, Irvy
Look in the fendel, Mendel
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Hannah, Davy, Tommy, Dora, Mandrake
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Pastafazoola, Tallulah
Oh, do have a bagel, Fagel
Now, don’t be so bashful, Nashville
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Hey, this is a party, Marty
Well, you get the cherry, Jerry
Now look, don’t be so picky, Mickey
‘Cause everybody eats when they come to my house

All of my friends are welcome
Don’t make me coax you, moax you
Eat the tables, the chairs, the napkins, who cares?
You gotta eat if it chokes you

Oh, do have a knish, Nisha
Pass him the latke, Matke
Chile con carne for Barney
Everybody eats when they come to my house

Face, buster, chair, chops, fump
Everybody eats when they come to my house

— Cab Callloway, Everybody Eats when they come to my house
