Everybody Eats When They Come To My House
Cabell Calloway Lyrics


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

Try a tomato, Plato,
Here's cacciatore, Dorie,
Taste the baloney, 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, Talullah!
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,
Here, you get the cherry, Jerry,
Now, look, don't be so picky, Micky,
'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, Nishia,
Pass me the latke, Macky,
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!

Everybody eats when they come to my house!

Another hit of the sticky, Ricky?
Go ahead and tap the bong, Wong
A little OG Purple Haze, Reyes
Everybody tokes when they come to my house

Now won't you spark up the weed, Creed?
Don't lose that cherry, Jerry
Roll up another spliff, Heathcliff
Everybody tokes when they come to my house

I pack the bowl with your favorites
A little shatter will thrill ya
Hit the blunt or the joint, getting faded's the point,
You better dab if it kills ya

Have a pot cookie, Snooki
Try this sativa, Diva
Maynard just got his weed card
Everybody tokes when they come to my house

Come in, be a smarty!
The shindig's 'bout to starty!
The gang's all here!
Let's give a cheer...
For the big wrap party tonight!
There's chow galore!
So open the door...
To the big wrap party tonight!
We're dining buffet style
With food from every nation.
So plan to stop a while
And join the celebration!
They've come for fun and feastin'.
We've even let the Beast in.
Let's go hors d'oeuvre-in'
And see what they're servin'
At the big wrap party tonight.
There's manicotti for Dotty,
Soft shell taco for Yakko,
And Wakko is ready
For a truck load of spaghetti
At the big wrap party tonight.
Hello Nurse is eating liverwurst,
Thaddeus Plotz has red hots.
Ralph the Guard is cooking with lard.
The apron that's cute is Dot's
Take a whiff, Dr. Scratchansniff.
No veal in the meal for Miss Flamiel.
The Flame keeps a-glowin'.
The punch bowl's overflowin'
At the big wrap party tonight.
The Randy Beaman kid
Is eatin' fried squid
At the big wrap party tonight
The pasta by Pesto is the besto.
Bobby helps Squit, who's choking on a pit!
The cheese balls are nectar
To Mr. Director...
At the big wrap party tonight.
The Great Wakkorotti
Has gone to the potty
At the big wrap party tonight.
Runt bakes the bundt cakes.
A pocket of pita for Rita.
Nuttin' but mutton
For Mindy and Buttons.
Sylvester wants a parakeet-ah.
Katie Ka-Boom can clear out a room.
A pie, key lime...
Is headed for the mime!
Chicken Boo
Is eating tiramisu
At the big wrap party tonight.
The entire crew
Came from Acme Loo
For the big wrap party tonight!
Get another nappy for Slappy.
More bean dippy for Skippy.
Extra chippos for the Hip Hippos.
The Brain's eating pizza that's drippy.
Minerva Mink's leavin' with Steven.
A hot cocoa drinky for Pinky.
Yakko and Wakko
Don't allow tobacco
At the big wrap party tonight!
It's happy hour
In the water tower
At the big wrap party tonight!
In our toon careers,
These are the golden years!
We've loved the jokes,
So thank you, folks!
You've eaten your fill,
Now here's the bill
For the big wrap party...
Pay with your credit cardy!
At the big wrap party tonight!
The big wrap party tonight!

I'm 59 years old and I'm slowly discovering all the great entertainers of the 30's and 40's. I love Cab's music!

Francois Degroen

Suggestion: Anything by Fats Waller - lots of youtube good clips, someone also posted a documentary from the 1970s about Fats - sometimes divided into 3 or 4 parts - well worth the effort. For film of similar hidden talent,, try starting with STORMY WEATHER. CARMEN JONES, with Harry Bellafonte, is another must-see . I might have her name wrong, but rock solid talent that didn't flinch breaching very real barriers that were more normalized then. I'm stoked you're discovering this stuff - a real American treasures. Start a toe-tapping', Good luck, Donald. Peace. Its great therapy nowadays. See you in the world.🙃

I’ve been listening since I was about 5 or 6.

Face Howard

I'm 46 and I always love it. Hahaha. Good music isn't colorblind.

john thomas

everything new sucks, so have to keep finding old things to like.

Pav Man

I find myself lucky that my favourite film from 5 years old was the blues brothers. Gave me the taste for big band sound that popular music sorely lack

Cab was in a class by himself. Love him endlessly.

+Dana Carpender I'll add: Still the best party music.

Calloway's voice is so lovely to listen to

Armand Di Meo

"Pasta fagioli, Talulah" is my favorite line (it does not rhyme in print). I heard this on the radio today for the first time (college radio jazz show). This is one of the greatest feel good songs of all time.
