    Lyrics

    We're gonna have a supper
    We'll eat some food that's rare
    And at the head of the table
    We'll place brother Henry's chair
    Invite all the local big dogs
    We'll laugh and talk and eat
    But we'll save the bones for Henry Jones
    'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

    Today I'll go to market
    Buy up a lotta fish
    Well, that will thrill brother Henry
    'Cause fish is his special dish
    Get a large can of molasses
    Have something really sweet
    But we'll save the bones for Henry Jones
    'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

    Henry is not a drinker
    He rarely takes a nip
    He don't need a napkin
    'Cause the things he eats don't drip – blip!
    One day we had a banquet
    It really was a bake
    They started off with short ribs
    Then finished off with steak
    But when the feast was over
    Brother Henry just kept his seat
    And we served the bones to Henry Jones
    'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

    Our banquet was most proper
    Right down to demitasse
    From soup to lox and bagels
    And pheasant under glass – class!
    We thought the chops were mellow
    He said his chops were beat – reet!
    We served the bones to Henry Jones
    'Cause Henry don't eat no meat
    He's an egg man
    Henry don't eat no meat
    He loves a pullet
    Henry don't eat no meat
    A vegetarian
    Henry?
    Coming mother!
    Soup's on
