The Kinks

The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, by brothers Ray and Dave Davies in 1964. Categorised in the United States as a British Invasion band, the Kinks are recognised as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country. Ray Davies (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Dave Davies (lead guitar, vocals) remained members throughout the group's 32-year run. Original members Pete Quaife (bass guitar, vocals) and Mick Avory (drums and percussion) were replaced by John Dalton in 1969 and Bob Henrit in 1984, respectively.

I'll have some clam chowder, followed by beef steak on rye
Pumpkin pie, whipped cream and coffee
I wanna green salad on the side
Don't forget the french fries
Pizza pie, garlic and anchovy
I keep burning up calories as fast as I keep putting them down
Eat food, put it in my mouth
Chew it up, swallow it down
I'll have two eggs, over light, home made apple pie
Cole slaw as a side order
I gotta stay fit, stay alive, eat food to sustain a non-stop high-grade performer
The pace is continual, sure keeps running me down
Don't you know that you gotta eat food
Don't you know that you gotta refuel
I'm a maximum consumption, super-grade performer
High powered machine
Go steady on my clutch, go easy on the hills
And you'll get a lot of mileage out of me
I'm so easy to drive, and I'm an excellent ride
Excessive living sure keeps running me down
You've got to learn to use the maximum juice
That's how you get the maximum use
Life keeps using me, keeps on abusing me, mentally and physically
I gotta stay fit, stay alive, need fuel inside, eat food to survive
Maximum consumption sure keeps running me down
Don't you know that you gotta eat food
Don't you know that it's good for you
I'm a maximum consumption
Non-stop machine
Total automation perpetual motion
