Eddie Spaghetti



Eddie Spaghetti with the meatball eyes,
Put him in the oven and you get french fries.
Sprinkle on the cheese, if you please,
Be careful with the pepper, 'cause you just might sneeze!






This song is originally from my cousin Ed's childhood, and now Ed and Carey sing it to their 10 month old baby, Lil' Eddie.  At our annual day after Thanksgiving party, we decided that each year we will come up with a new verse to the song.  By the time Lil' Eddie is 13 he will have so many versus, he won't know which one to be embarrassed by the most!

This is one of my favorite days of the year.  Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!!

HI, after a google search, you seemed to have the most complete version of Eddie Spaghetti. Do you or your cousin know where it came from? I had a cousin who liked to sing it back in the 1960's, but I can't seem to find where it came from.
Thanks!

No, this is from my brother's childhood:

Eddy spaghetti with the meatball eyes.
Put him in the oven and make French fries.
Eat for breakfast. Eat him for lunch.
Every time you eat him he goes crunch, crunch.

OMG... we used to sing this to a boy named Eddie in kindergarten. I thought we silly kindergartner girls made it up. I had no idea it was a real chant! SOOO funny!
