"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.

Trivia

  • 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.[1]
    • "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.
