Well I was on a cruise ship out at see
My fiance and me
The ship went down
Everybody drowned
and I was just glad the sea didn't swallow me

Hey I was in distress
'cause my hair was such a mess
and so I washed up on a beach
Twelve hungry eyes were staring down at me

I'm in the middle of a cannibal buffet
I'm feeling well, they like me that way
So if you really wanna know what's eating m e
It's the man-eaters on the coast of Barbary

Oh, trouble was afoot they were eating mine
Toe in the party line
I was starting to feel, these guys are heals
Well truth be told these cannibals have got soul

Hey numbskull look at me
I've got a bone to pick with thee
you ain't humorous, stop ribbing me
If you had a spine you'd come and set me free

I'm in the middle of a cannibal buffet
I'm feeling rare, they like me that way
So if you really wanna know what's eating me
It's the man-eaters on the coast of Barbary

Missionaries came to this place
They taught us manners
Now we cannibals always say grace
...and then we eat your face

I'm in the middle of a cannibal buffet
I'm feeling well, they like me that way
So if you really wanna know what's eating me
It's the man-eaters on the coast of Barbary
Ow, oo, ow, ow, not my pee pee !

    Lyric CorrectionWell I was on a cruise ship out at sea
    My fiance and me
    The ship went down
    Everybody drowned
    and I was just glad the sea didn't swallow me

    Hey I was in distress
    'cause my hair was such a mess
    and so I washed up on a beach
    Nine hungry eyes were staring down at me

    I'm in the middle of a cannibal buffet
    I'm feeling well, they like me that way
    So if you really wanna know what's eating me
    It's the man-eaters on the coast of Barbary

    Oh, trouble was afoot they were eating mine
    Toe in the party line
    I was starting to feel, these guys are heels
    Well truth be told these cannibals have got soul

    Hey numbskull look at me!
    I've got a bone to pick with thee
    you ain't humerous, stop ribbing me!
    Have a spine! Bone up on settin' me free!

    I'm in the middle of a cannibal buffet
    I'm feeling rare, they like me that way
    So if you really wanna know what's eating me
    It's the man-eaters on the coast of Barbary

    Missionaries came to this place
    They taught us manners
    Now we cannibals always say grace!
    (Thank you good lord for this weiner
    we're about to eat and the sweet buns
    we're gonna stick it in!)
    ...and then we eat your face!

    I'm in the middle of a cannibal buffet
    I'm feeling well, they like me that way
    So if you really wanna know what's eating me
    It's the man-eaters on the coast of Barbary
    Ow, oo, ow, ow, not my pee pee !
