Oddities and Rarities - Chocolate and Chips

well, i woke up late
and i woke up hungry
emptied my pockets
not a whole lotta money
a few bucks in tips
enough to buy me
some chocolate and potato chips
chocolate and potato chips

put on my coat
headed out the door
figured i'd hit
that vietnamese store
they got package liquor
pigs lips
chocolate and potato chips
chocolate and potato chips

on the way
i met sammy's brother
i said "hey junior
i knew your mother
when she still carried you on her hips
and bought you
chocolate and potato chips"
chocolate and potato chips

but junior
he was not impressed
took a baseball bat to my chest
said "gimme your money
or i'll break your ribs"
i didn't
so he did

that boy left me in a bad way

i went to the doctor
she called the nurse
said "it looks bad
but i seen worse"
gave me a shot and an i.v. drip
said "if you're real good
nurse will get you
some potato chips"
chocolate and potato chips
and you know what?
she never did

but there was a vending machine
down the hall
i could hardly walk
and so i crawled
reached in my pocket
my pocket was ripped
counted my change
i had zip
for chocolate and potato chips
i was ready to die
so i did

now i didn't go straight
to the pearly gates
i told st peter
he'd have to wait
while i made a short trip
to the vietnamese store
for package liquor
pigs lips
chocolate and potato chips
