lyrics

Oh some think that the Lord is fat
And some that he is bony
But as for me, I think that He
Is like an abalone

Oh some drink rain and some champagne
And whiskey by the pony
But I will try a dash of rye
And a hunk of abalone

Oh some like ham and some like jam
And some like macaroni
But our tomcat gets nice and fat
On juicy abalone

The more we take the more they make
In deep-sea matrimony
Race suicide will ne’er betide
The fertile abalone

I telegraph my better half
By Morse or by Marconi
But when in need of greater speed
I send an abalone

Oh Mission Point’s a friendly joint
Where every crab’s a crony
And true and kind you’ll ever find
The faithful abalone

Some live on hope and some on dope
And some on alimony
But bring me in a pail of gin
And a tub of abalone

Oh some folks boast of quail on toast
Because they think it’s tony
But I’m content to pay my rent
And live on abalone

Oh some folks say that pain is real
And some say that it’s phony
But as for me when I can’t agree
I eat an abalone
