UNKNOWN Dunderbeck Lyrics
DUNDERBECK

G - D7 G / G - A7 D/ C G Am D7 / G - D7 G

There was a man named Dunderbeck, invented a machine,
For grinding things to sausage meat and it was run by steam.
Now kitchen cats and long-tailed rats will never more be seen,
They`ll all be ground to sausage meat in Dunderbeck`s machine.


Oh Dunderbeck, oh Dunderbeck, how could you be so mean
To ever have invented the sausage meat machine?
Now long tailed rats and pussy cats will never more be seen,
They`ll all be ground to sausage meat in Dunderbeck`s machine.

One day a little fat boy came walking in the store.
He bought a pound of sausage and laid them on the floor.
Then he began to whistle, he whistled up a tune,
The sausages, they jumped, they barked, they danced `round the room.
CHORUS

On day the thing got busted, the darn thing wouldn`t go,
And Dunderbeck, he crawled inside to see what made it so.
His wife, she had a nightmare, she was walking in her sleep
She gave a yank and turned the crank and Dunderbeck was meat.

CHORUS

-----------------------------------------------------------------

This version is a combination of the versions from `Folk Songs
for Fun` and `101 plus 5 Folk Songs for Camp`.

From 101: `Recently the newspapers uncovered a story about some
major meat packing concerns who were packing their ground meat
with horse meat and kangaroo meat. Evidently, this practice
isn`t new and here`s a song about Dunderbeck and his meat
machine. It reminds me of a sign I saw in a meat packing plant
in Rutland, Vermont, `USE MEAT CUTTING KNIVES CAREFULLY -- DON`T
PUT YOURSELF INTO YOUR WORK`.`
