Mother-in-law with Oregano

My mother-in-law, my mother-in law [Dassn't Say]

I've chopped her up and made some slaw [d]

But where to find some mayonnaise? [Kansas Sam]

I've heard they sell it down at Ray's [N]

I'll go there soon, but first I'll plot [Dassn't Say]

To fill the Colonel's coleslaw pot [Kansas Sam]

With shredded carrots--pepper, too [F]

And possibly a noxious brew [quasi]

Of Mom, amid her herbs and spices [Kansas Sam]

Paper-thin fleshy slices [F]

Tasting rather bitter, though [Anon.]

(Pass me Mom's oregano) [Kansas Sam]

My brother-in-law, my brother-in-law [Anon.]

Ate all of his gruel then went back for more [Padfoot]

The upshot was, he spends his days [Beefy ]

Drinking quarts of vin de pays [Ethetran]

I'll join his quaffing, once I've got [Beefy ]

A big cornish pasty (served cold or hot) [Padfoot]

Made with lamb, turnips -- spuds as well [Fatty]

Use lamb in a pasty you'll sure go to hell! [Padfoot]

Just leave us to our own devices [Beefy ]

And serve your in-laws with tasty spices [Dassn't Say]

Then watch the "tastes like chicken" show [Kansas Sam]

And step aside when chunks do blow [Karin]
