Great Green Gobs

Great green gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts,
Mutiliated monkey meat,
Chopped up birdie feet!

French fried eyeballs mixed in with baby mush,.

I for-got my spoon!

So I'll use a straw. .

Almost all begin with "Great green gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts,' (although one person wrote in that it was "18 pounds").

From there the variations on ingredients are endless: It could have "little bloody birdies feet" or "chopped up parakeet" or "tiny pickeled piggy's feet".

It may have eyeballs "simmered in a pot of blood" or "floating in all-purpose porpoise puss" or "dipped in kerosene".

The song is frequently sang whilst kids are camping, or at a Scouting event.

"Great Green Globs" is an anonymous folk song popular with school children. The tune of "The Old Gray Mare" is usually used to accompany the words. There are many regional and local versions but a large number of them utilize the phrase "greasy, grimy gopher guts" in the opening line.

The fun part of the song for children is the description of disgusting foodstuffs that are not usually for consumption. Mae Whitman (Maggie Taylor) and George Clooney (Jack Taylor) sing this song in their 1996 movie One Fine Day.

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

Slightly different lyrics in this version but still gross

Gross green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Little birdies bloody feet
French friend eyeballs rolling down the street
Oops, I forgot my utensils.

Another disgusting version!

Big fat gobs
of greasy grimy gopher guts
mutilated monkey meat
evaporated turkey feet
one full quart of all purpose puss
floating in pink lemonade and me without a spoon.

A horrid ending in this version!

Mutilated monkey meat,
Camel snot and stinky feet.

So they gave me a scab sandwich
with puss on top.


Great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts.
Mutilated monkey meat.
Chopped up baby parakeet.
French-fried eyeballs rolling down a muddy street.
That's what we eat at school.

Disgusting lyrics sung to one of our users by their Dad!

Great big globs of greasy grimy gopher guts
mutilated monkey meat
dirty little birdies' feet
great big eyeballs rolling down the muddy street
and I forgot my spoon.
But I had my straw, so I ate it all!

One more!

Great big gobs or greasy grimy gopher guts
mutilated monkey meat
hairy little piggy's feet
all served up with vegetated vulture's vomit
and eaten without a spoon.

Another One You Might Enjoy

Great big globs of greasy, grimy, gopher guts
Mutilated, monkey's meat
Little birdies, turdy, feet
All washed up in alligators purple pee.

You forgot your spoon!

Snails sandwiches, pus on top
Elephant vomit, monkey snot
Cows eyeballs dipped in glue.

Eat it (insert name), it's good for you!

One verse to sing to

Boys are made of greasy, grimy, gopher guts,
Marinated monkey meat,
French fried parakeet,
All that gooey stuff walking down the
Country street wish I had a spoon.

We have more of them

Great big gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts
Little dirty birdy feet
Marinated monkey meat
One quart jar of all-purpose porpoise pus
And I forgot my spooo --oo--on.

This works as a recipe

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
Contaminated monkey meat,
Roasted toasted parakeet,
All mixed up with really dirty birdies feet,
Buy it at your favorite store.

Yet another version:

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts,
Mutilated monkey meat,
Constipating birdie's feet
One whole pint of all purpous porpoise pus
And I forgot my spoon
But I got my straw
My wife heard the verse as
French fried eye balls swimmin in a bowl of blood
And I forgot my spoon
But I got my straw
I'm from Philly she from Ohio.

Drinkable version:

Greasy grimy gopher guts
mutilated munkey meat,
dirty little birdy feet,
all laying out in the
middle of a busy street
And I forgot my spoon
but I've got my straw.

As learned in Iowa:

Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher meat,
Dirty little birdies feet,
French fried eyeballs dipped in kerosine,
That's what I had for lunch!

Similar to the one above:

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher meat
constipated monkey brains
helped make the ancient rains
That's what we ate in school.
