SANDWICHES

Cho: Sandwiches are beautiful, sandwiches are fine                       

I like sandwiches, I eat them all the time                                      

I eat them for my supper, and I eat them for my lunch                    

If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once!                   

                                                                                              

I’m a-roamin’ and a-ramblin’, and wanderin’ alone

And if you care to listen I will sing a happy song!

I will not ask a favor and I will not ask a fee

But if you have yourself a sandwich, won’t you give a bite to me!?

Chorus

 

Once I went to England, I visited the Queen

She served the smallest sandwiches that I have ever seen

I told her for a shilling I’d be willing to eat more

So she handed me the smallest one and threw me out the door!

Chorus

 

Once I met an old man, he had a loaf of bread

He saw that I had tuna fish, he looked at me and said

“Your tuna fish is lonely, and my slice of bread is bare,

But we could have some sandwiches if you would care to share!”  I said,

Chorus

 

Now a sandwich may be egg or cheese, or even peanut butter

But they all taste so good to me, it really doesn’t matter

Ham or jam or cucumber, any kind will do

I like sandwiches, how ‘bout you?

Chorus

If I had a hundred sandwiches, I’d eat them all at once!
