Eco-terrorists are on the loose
We can’t undo what might be done
if they’re successful

One dispatched nefarious Gertrud
an ending shocking everyone
(don’t be forgetful)

I’ve got to find these cads
and stop their plot, so we will have tomorrow, son
and can be restful

They will poison our dish most preferred
Most fiendish caper ever heard:

Green chicken soup, oh what a crime
Not a dish that we would want at our mealtime

Green chicken soup, oh what a crime
O-o-o-o-oy, O-o-o bo-o-oy
Not a dish that we would want at our mealtime
They’ll not destro-o-oy, O-o-o-o-oy

Green chicken soup, oh what a crime
O-o-o-o-oy, Oh, what a plo-o-oy
Not a dish that we would want at our mealtime
We can’t en-jo-o-oy, O-o-o-o-oy

They’ll start with soup and escalate
Green bagels, lox, gefilte fish
Abominations

Green cholent (what would Sonja say?)
and emerald kreplach, kugel, knish
We don’t want mutations

Saint Paddy’s is still ten days off
No need to put your tukhes oyfn tish
Please, no fixations

They will poison our dish most preferred
Most fiendish caper ever heard
Now sing together:

Green chicken soup, oh what a crime
O-o-o-o-oy, this does ano-o-oy
Not a dish that we would want at our mealtime
O-o-o-o-oy, don’t quash our jo-o-oy

Green chicken soup
Yeech!
