Down By the Dinner Plate

ALF singing "Down By the Dinner Plate."

"Down By the Riverside" is a traditional African-American gospel song. ALF sings his own impomptu parody of the song in the episode "Turkey in the Straw: Part 1."

ALF's parody lyrics are as follows:

I'm gonna lay down my fork and spoon

Down by the dinner plate

Down by the dinner plate

Down by the dinner plate

I'm gonna lay down my fork and spoon

Down by the dinner plate

And eat this with my hands.

Cast he,s gonna use his fork and Spoon

Alf Down by the dinner plate x3

Cast he,s gonna eat this on the plane

Alf Down by the Dinner plate x 3

Cast he,s gonna eat this in the restaurant

Alf Down by the Dinner plate x 3

Cast did he have a pudding to

Alf Down by the dinner plate x 3

Cast did he eat this on his own

Alf down by the dinner plate (back to chorus) lib to fade
