Gopher Guts T-Shirt

Hey Fans of Gross Food Diagrams! I've got a new t-shirt up for sale at Shirt.Woot! for a limited time only. It's another installment in my ongoing obsession with an (apparently obscure) kids' folk song.
The way I always learned it (in Louisville, Kentucky) goes something like this:
Great Green Gobs of Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts
Rolling Down the Bloody Street,
Mutiliated Monkey Feet
French-Fried Eyeballs,
Dipped in Kerosene
And me without a Spoon.
But I still have a straw! SLLLLUUUUURP!

But I also factored in the possible variants of Itty-Bitty Birdie Feet (in lieu of the monkey's) and Octo-Pus Tentacles in place of the eyeballs. Enjoy!

that gopher seems surprisingly upbeat about this situation.

that's weird, i didn't know it was obscure, it's a song I remember learning in cub scouts.

I used to know a variation of this song. I like the sketch version too.

The way i learned it was:
Big green gobs of greasy, grimy, gopher guts,
mutilated monkey meat,
itty bitty birdy feet,
french-fried eyeballs rolling down a dirty street,
and I forgot my spoon....
But I have a straw!
