lyrics

CHORUS

Eat a hot dog
Eat a hot dog, baby [dude]
They're America's food
Eat them all up, baby [dude]

Eat a hot dog
Eat a hot dog, baby [dude]
Show them that we're hungry
Stuff 'em all in, baby [dude]

VERSE 1

I am meat!
I am beef and pork and mechanically separated turkey
I am fat, salt, preservatives and mystery spices most quirky
But don't dwell on my ingredients; they do get kind of murky

I am creative!
You can broil, steam or fry me, or just throw me on the grill -- I'm ready quick
You can eat me on a bun or on a roll or in corn batter on a stick
Embellish me with sauerkraut, mustard or any other topping
It's yours to pick

CHORUS

VERSE 2

I am summer!
I bring smiles to the faces of small children at the local county fair
Dads and sons buy hot dogs at the ballgame, a prized moment to share
The sun sets on backyard cookouts, neighbors laughing, talking, eating without a care

I am America!
I may not be high cuisine, but what I am is damn full of pride
I take unwanted, wretched, cast out scraps of meat -- and invite them all inside
Together we are something special, that so-called grade-A cuts of steak
Simply can't provide

CHORUS

VERSE 3

I am hot dog!
I am special in small moments and I'm happy just to discover
I've helped someone make a new friend or enchant a brand new lover
Because life without hot dogs would be just a little bit duller

Yes, I am hot dog!
And as a hot dog I am part of much bigger moments too
Piled on a plate with my brothers, my big contest debut
And though I may be eaten oh so quick, and though my eater may not chew
In that moment of consumption, to my very best self I am true

Chorus x2
