Muncha Buncha Lunch


Muncha Buncha Lunch

Muncha Buncha Lunch
is the nickname of a kid
who eats everybody's lunches
that aren't locked up or hid.

If you ever turn your back on him
for even half a minute,
when you turn back to your lunch box,
that ole Muncha Bunch is in it.

He eats chips and grapes and
pears and soup and sandwiches galore.
And when he's done with all of that,
he still can eat some more.

He munches, crunches, gulps and swallows
everything in sight.
He eats lunch for breakfast...dinner too,
and even at midnight.

I wonder what would happen
if somebody had a hunch
and sent all the school kids home at noon
except for Muncha Bunch.

Then whose bananas would he steal?
Whose pretzels would he take?
He'd probably end up eating all the chairs,
for goodness sake.

That Muncha Buncha's appetite
is just too big to stop.
Next time he tries to eat my lunch,
I'm gonna call a cop!

That will teach him not to be
so gluttonous and rude,
cuz then all he'll have left to eat
is yucky prison food!
