    Lyrics

    Everything was in there
    That you'd want to see
    Corned beef and onions
    And true love
    Turnips and tinned tomatoes
    Parsnips and a few potatoes
    A couple extra blessings
    From above

    Now this here mingle-mangle
    Was my best one yet
    A big old bad goulash
    Worth waiting for
    And I'm just about to dip my can
    Taste some brotherhood of man
    When I get a feeling
    That there's a flaw

    Who put old pigweed
    In the mulligan
    Was it you
    Who put old pigweed
    In the mulligan stew
    I close my eyes
    For just a minute
    What do you do
    Who put old pigweed
    In the mulligan stew

    You won't find self-improvement or philosophy
    In a dumpster sitting by
    The kitchen door
    There's plenty leek and humble pie
    Ain't too much ham on rye
    Sometimes I wonder
    What I'm looking for

    But a spoonful of forgiveness
    Goes a long, long way
    And we all should do our best
    To get along
    Add a pinch of kindness crumbling
    To your loving dumpling
    Okra for thickening
    When something's wrong

    But who put old pigweed
    In the mulligan
    Was it you
    Who put old pigweed
    In the mulligan stew
    I close my eyes
    For just a minute
    What do you do
    Who put old pigweed
    In the mulligan stew
