Take Your Elbow Out Of The Soup You're Sitting On The Chicken

This song is by Ian Dury and the Blockheads and appears on the album Laughter (1980).

To be simple and wise
Never tell lies
Always pick on someone my own size
Would be quite a thing
And when I make it swing
I'll write you a letter or I'll give you a ring

Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the chicken
Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the chicken
Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the chicken
Holding you tight is extremely all right
If ain't called love then it ain't like a light, sailor

To be sweet and true
To the likes of you
A promise that time will not undo
Would be truly smart
And when I make a start
I'll come and pick you up in my horse and cart

The mouse runs up your leg, it's 1 O'clock in china
The mouse runs up your leg, ooh, it's 1 O'clock in china
The mouse runs up your leg, oh, it's 1 O'clock in china
Oh for the wings of a dove, goodness me, I'm in love

Are they shut or open? Always all around you close
And there's poor darling and I love you
And I might one who cares

Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the kittens
Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the kittens
Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the kittens
Take your elbow out of the soup, you're sitting on the kittens

To be simple and wise...
