I eat heavy metal and gargle premium gas
I drink heavy water and nitro-demi-tasse

I eat heavy metal, I chew up limousines
I munch barbed wire in my submarine

I like stainless razor, sharpen appetite
I can swallow a laser if I'm eating light

I like anchor sandwich served on aluminum side
I like rusty fences, and locomotive pie

[interlude]

I eat heavy metal, I don't truck with tinsel
I drink heavy water, I eat turbo schnitzel

I eat big transformers, I like stoves and cans
Tasty rolled-steel-girders, I chomp copper pans

I eat heavy metal and I gargle premium gas
I drink heavy water, nitro-demi-tasse
