First you take a giant bowl
and put a waffle in it,
then you add a bunch of jam
and stir it for a minute.

After that you get a cup
and fill it up with custard,
then dump it in with mushroom soup
and just a little mustard.

Squeeze a lemon right on top,
add peanut butter—oodles,
but don’t forget the applesauce
and two big scoops of noodles.

Then nuke it in the microwave.
That’s it, you’ve got a winner.
Get the plates out now and yell,
“Come and get it! Dinner!”
