There are many variations of this song!
Great green gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,
Multilated monkey meat,
Little dirty birdie feet,
French fried eye-balls,
Rolling down a muddy street,
And I forgot my spoon.
But I brought my straw.

"Growing up we sang this with 'crushed up parakeet' as the third line." -Gary
Here's the version Gary grew up with:
Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Crushed up parakeet
French fried eyeballs
Rolling down the dirty street
and then something about forgetting or bringing a spoon ...
