People.  People who eat people
Are the hungriest people in the world.
Some parents, fed up with being parents,
After tanning their children’s hide,
Fried all the meat inside,
And fed starving children their children.

Miners are tough and stringy people.
They’re the hungriest people in the world.
With one person, one tough and stringy person,
A feeling deep in your gut
Says you were starved, now you’re not.
No more hunger and thirst,
Be the first on your lifeboat to eat people.
People who eat people
Are the hungriest people in the world.
