WrapRap by Guy Stephenson

I slice the jalapeños
an’ scatter them aroun’
add the crumbled feta
an’ pepper that is groun’
smoke’ chicken, pickle’ garlic
are added to the mix
oh this is such a mighty meal
that I am gonna fix –
lollo rosso next, o’ course
an’ then a squirt of mayo
an’ last of all the chilli sauce
or mustard that is yellow.

I’m cool with this ‘ol cookin’ jive
I don’t get in a flap
I’m cool with this ‘ol cookin’ jive
I sure can roll a wrap.
