The Scrambled Yegg

Scrambled eggs
I’m going to cook them in my pan today
add some salt into the play
for my stomach substance begs

Add some toast
thick with butter on one side
down my throat soon it will slide
while some coffee I do roast

Why it cooks so slow I don’t know
I’m so hungry and soon must go

Add some jam
pretty up my dismal am
mix some jelly into plan
slide down throat to belly cram

In hot butter sizzles yellow
I am such a lucky fellow

Oh I ate too much
and my stomach I do clutch
now I cannot eat my lunch
since I’ve scrambled up this bunch

Paul McCartney said the tune to Yesterday came in a dream, and until he wrote the lyrics, he called it “Scrambled Eggs.”
