Beef, chicken, pork again
Same menu in Saudi everyday
Isn’t pork forbidden by Islam
I’ve never seen a pig here anyway

Same menu in Saudi everyday
Maybe it’s camel or scorpion
I’ve never seen a pig here anyway
Haven’t seen cows or chickens

Maybe it’s camel or scorpion
Mike always gets the grilled cheese
Haven’t seen cows or chickens
Maybe Mike’s onto something

Mike always gets grilled cheese
Isn’t pork forbidden by Islam
Maybe Mike’s onto something
Beef, chicken, pork again
