"Eggs" is the second song of The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure, and it focuses greatly on the sly and sneaky nature of Ozzy and his love for eggs, as well as Strut's vegetarian traits and his desire to eat leaves. It is the first song to be sung by villains of the Land Before Time franchise.

Ozzy & Strut

Ozzy the Struthiomimus singing "Eggs".

Lyrics

Ozzy: When I wake up, first thing I do...

Eggs

...is to look around for something to chew

"Eggs-actly"

Feeding myself is very, very tricky
because you see, I'm ridiculously picky

Eggs


Strut: Excuse me, Ozzy, I-

Ozzy:This Struthiomimus won't settle for the dregs
I'll borrow; I'll beg
I'll even kiss you

Strut: Kiss me?

Ozzy: For my dear beloved dose... of eggs

Strut: Hurry, Ozzy, I'm so hungry. I can't wait for another minute
Here's a juicy little leaf with a beautiful stick in it
Can't I have a taste... if I promise just to lick it?

Ozzy: Strut!

Strut What?

Ozzy: You imbecilic eater. Great, green globs couldn't possibly be sweeter than a pile of eggs
You've got to smell them; feel them, crack them open for a great big nest full I am hoping

Strut: I'm starving!; I'm weak! There's nothing in my tummy.
Why the mold on that tree is starting to look yummy

Ozzy: The colors and shapes and assorted sizes.
Gobble them all for appetizers.

Eggs-tasy


Strut: Ozzy, what's the matter with a little vegetation?
Ozzy: I've had it up to here with this aggrevation!

Strut: Can't I have this piece of a tree?

Ozzy: Why can't you be more like me? You leaf-loving,...

Strut: Hey!

Ozzy: ...bush-burping, stem-smelling, garden-gorging,...

Strut: Wait a minute!

Ozzy: Plant-popping, tree-tasting, dirt-devouring beast!

Strut: Ozzy!

Ozzy: You've got to have eggs, thrice a day at least.
