"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.
Is to look around
for something to chew
Feeding myself is very, very tricky
because you see, I'm ridiculously picky
Excuse me, Ozzy, I-
won't settle for the dregs
I'll even kiss you
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?
great green globs couldn't
possibly be sweeter
than a pile of eggs
for a great big nest full I am hoping
There's nothing in my tummy
Why the mold on that tree
is starting to look yummy
gobble them all for appetizers
Thrice a day
- This song is notable as being the only occurrence of mentioning the actual name of a species, which in this case is Ozzy and Strut's (Struthiomimus).
- After years; the song has held up much recognition and popularity; as of today the song "Eggs" has been used by fans as a cult reference and meme; this specifically being using a clip or image of Ozzy's close-up the moment he says "Eggs". It has even been used on TheGamingBeaver's YouTube channel in some videos.
- "Eggs" has become so widely popular amongst The Land Before Time fans it has earned several parodies on YouTube. One of the most recognizable parodies, was rough sketch animation with the song being used while Madagascar characters, Kowalski and Private portray Ozzy and Strut respectively; this relates well to the characters as Jeff Bennett voiced both Ozzy and Kowalski and used the same voice; while Private and Strut have both British accents and share similar characteristics.
- On The Songs from the Land Before Time soundtrack CD and digital, the song is actually sourced from a PAL-formatted version of The Land Before Time Sing-Along Songs VHS tape, resulting in a slightly higher audio pitch than normal.
