Pizza in his Pocket lyrics - Zain Bhikha

Pizza in his Pocket - Zain Bhikha

Did you ever hear about the boy

Who ate and ate and ate!

He ate early in the morning

And he ate when it was late.

 

But he didn't thank Allah for all the yummy food he had

And he ate so much it made him sick!

Which really made him sad.

 

He ate dates in Damascus, which he thought were very nice.

And hot samoosas in Sumatra, seasoned with a special spice.

He had tacos in Tijuana with some sauce he got from Spain

And a bowl of fresh bakalava that he bartered in Bahrain.

 

He said gyros made in Cairo are a taste that can't be beat,

And the lemonade in Yemen made a very special treat.

But the turkey made in Turkey

Could still use a pinch of salt.

If you ever visit Malta, you should

Have a chocolate malt!

 

He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt,

And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldn't miss dessert.

 

He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt,

And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldn't miss dessert.

 

On a bay in the Bahamas,

He ate bon-bons in a bunch.

And then he rushed back

Home so he could make it

Just in time for lunch!

 

Then one day he saw a little girl, who held her tummy tight,

And he walked over and asked her if everything was alright.

She said she was so hungry and had been hungry for so long,

Then he realized the way he ate was very very wrong.

 

He looked down at his own tummy and he started feeling pain-

Pain from eating too much food, but he knew not to complain.

So he brought the girl some food, shared it with her family,

Then they thanked Allah for what they had, and then he let them be.

 

So let's try to learn a lesson and let's try to do what's right.

Eat the food your parents give you without a fuss or fight.

Always be thankful to Allah for all your yummy food,

Share what you have with others, because not sharing is rude.

Being thankful is what's really great.

Eat the veggies on your plate.

 

And don't be like the boy who always ate and ate and ate!

He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt,

And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldn't miss dessert.

 

He had pizza in his pocket, he had ketchup on his shirt,

And he bought an ice-cream sundae, so he wouldn't miss dessert!

 

Being thankful is what's really great.

Eat the veggies on your plate.

And don't be like the boy who always ate and ate and ate!
