I'll Eat You, I'll Drink You
Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

I'll eat you, I'll drink you
Yum yum yum yum yum.
I'll drink you, I'll drink you
Slip slop slippy slippy slop.

Well, I'll eat you and you'll eat me
And I'll eat you and you'll eat me
Sody pop, ice cream, sugar in my tea
1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3.
Ho ho ha ha hee hee hee,
And I'm a-gonna eat you up.
I'm a-gonna drink you down.

I'll bite you, I'll chew you
Yum yum yum yum yum.
I'll gulp you, I'll slurp you
Slip slop slippy slippy slop.

Well, I'll eat you and you'll eat me
And I'll eat you and you'll eat me
Sody pop, ice cream, sugar in my tea
Ha ha ha ha 1, 2, 3,
Ho ho ho ho hee hee hee.
And I'm a-gonna eat you up.
I'm a-gonna drink you down.

I like you, I love you
Yum yum yum yum yum.
I smell you, I taste you
Slip slop slippy slippy slop.

Well, I'll eat you and you'll eat me
And I'll eat you and you'll eat me
Sody pop, ice cream, sugar in my tea
1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3.
Ho ho ho hee hee hee,
And I'm a-gonna eat you up.
And I'm a-gonna drink you down.

I touch you, I feel you
Yum yum yum yum yum.
I pat you, I rub you
Slip slop slippy slippy slop.

Well, I'll eat you and you'll eat me
And I'll eat you and you'll eat me
Sody pop, ice cream, sugar in my tea
1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3.
Ho ho ho ha ha hee,
And I'm a-gonna eat you up.
I'm a-gonna drink you down.
I'm gonna eat you up.
I'm gonna drink you down.
