Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

The Rigatoni Song

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1973 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2001. This song was inspired by one of Steve Goodman‘s children.

I know a little girl,
She likes to dance and sing,
She likes to make up funny words,
And that's another thing;
She calls this thing my rigatar,
She likes to hear it sound,
So while I play a rigatoon,
We'll rig-a-jig-jig a round.

Oh rigatar, rigatoon, rigabeat.
Rigatoni's good to eat.
