Carnivores, herbivores, insectivores and omnivores are the subject of this song. If you don't know these words already, you'll never forget 'em after you hear this, one of Lucas Miller's most popular tunes captured live back in 2008. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

It was a beautiful day, so I headed down to the zoo
I took a walk around for an hour or two
I got hungry; I saw a Tex-Mex food stand
I was happy 'cos I am a chimichanga fan
That's when they take a big tortilla and they stuff it with the stuff you like
Then they drop it a big deep fryer, 'til it's fried up just right, it's fried up just right

I got in line like I'm supposed to do
Ahead of me I saw a kangaroo
And a snake and a frog, you can imagine my surprise
And then that frog stepped right up and said with a gleam in his eye

"I'm an insectivore (he's an insectivore)
So gimme what I adore (what do you adore?)
I want some bugs, bugs, bugs in my chimichanga!
Like some crickets and some beetles, and big cockroach-a-roo
'Cos they're so tasty and delicious and nutritious, too
I want some bugs, bugs, bugs in my chimichanga
Make it humonga!"

That frog hopped off and he found a seat
With his deep-fried flies and he started to eat
Then the snake slithered up with a smile and a hiss
She ordered her order, it went something like this:

"I'm a carnivore (she's a carnivore)
So gimme what I adore (what do you adore?)
I want some meat, meat, meat in my chimichanga
Make it humonga!
Like some mousies or some birdies or a big old rat-a-roo
'Cos they're so tasty and delicious and nutritious, too
I want some meat, meat, meat in my Chimichanga
Make it humonga!

The snake slithered off with her fuzzy-wuzzy dish
It was kangaroo's turn now to declare her wish
With slobber and drool drippin' down off her chin
She stepped right up and said with a grin,

"I'm a herbivore! (She's a herbivore)
So gimme what I adore! (What do you adore?)
I want some plants, plants, plants in my chimichanga
Make it humonga!
Like some grass and some leaves and some sprouts and shoots-a-roo
'Cos they're so tasty and delicious and nutritious, too
I want some plants, plants, plants in my Chimichanga
Make it humonga!

Kangaroo hopped off with her vegetarian treat
It was my turn now to say what I'd like to eat
After all I had seen you might think I'd feel ill
But I stepped right on up; I said, "I want my fill!"

"I'm an omnivore, 2X, so gimme what I adore (2X)
I want some meat and plants in my chimichanga
Make it humonga!
Like some chicken and some beans with a little rice-a-roo
'Cos they're so tasty and delicious and nutritious, too
I want some meat and plants in my chimichanga
Make it humonga!
