Do you oft bite off
more than you can chew?
Who doesn't want his cake
and to eat it too?
Bad apples fall not far from the tree.
Bad eggs can become the big cheese.
Ginger is one spicy carrot top.
Full of beans, she's the cream of the crop.
Hazel Nutt is out to lunch.
Will she ever come back?
Well in a nutshell,
She's a hard nut to crack.
Pie in the sky is half-baked.
Where's the steak?
The gravy train crashed and spilled the beans.
A surprising yet appetizing scene!
Hot potatoes don't quit cold turkey.
Cows are had before beefs become jerky.
The couch potato is slower than molasses
Drinking like a fish from half-empty glasses.
Breadwinners make the cheddar
and bring home the bacon.
There's an apple in her eye
and a bun in the oven bakin'.
Joe's cup of tea.
Hot Tamales --
Honey is bittersweet.
He egged her on when she buttered him up.
That's the nature and the flavor
of sugarcoated love.
Humble pie takes the cake.
That's the way the cookie breaks.
