Leftovers Goulash is a song performed by Arthur, D.W. and David in the episode Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival, where the three talk about the dishes cooked by David Read. The song appears on the Arthur and Friends: The First Almost Real Not Live CD (or Tape) as track 18. Unlike most of the songs in the album, the song is set to the tune of several classical and operatic pieces, such as Jacques Offenbach's Cancan, and La Toreador from George Bizet's Carmen.

Lyrics

Dad: Arthur! D.W.! Dinner!

Arthur:

My dad's a chef
You think that's great?
Just try to guess
What's on your plate He mixes things
And then he bakes
Why can't he stick
To chocolate cakes?

I want some ice cream
Chocolate would be good
Ice cream that tastes...
Just like it should!

Not broccoli
Turkey or a lima bean
It's got to taste like ice cream!

Dad:

You have to try
My latest treat
A jellied fish
Inside a beet

(Arthur, D.W.: Yuck!)

Why should we eat
The same old meals?
Wait 'til you taste
My garlic eels


There are so many things to make
A custard soup, a liver cake
A curry pie, with prunes and squash
How 'bout Leftovers Goulash?
(Hey!)

D.W.:

Nothing brown
And nothing soupy
Nothing slippery
And nothing gloopy

Nothing mashed
And nothing steamed
And nothing runny with eyes or feet
That smells or wiggles when you touch it                  

or with crusts
and nothing creamed!

This smells like fish!
I can't stand fish!
I can't believe this cookie

Smells like fish!


(Arthur: Ice cream!)
It tastes like fish! (Arthur: Ice cream!)
Like chocolate fish! (Arthur: Ice cream!)
Why would anybody eat a cookie fish?

Dad:

There are so many things to make
(D.W.: It tastes like fish! Arthur: I want some ice cream!)
A custard soup, a liver cake
(D.W.: I can't stand fish! Arthur: I want some ice cream!)
A curry pie, with prunes and squash
(D.W.: I can't believe this cookie smells! Arthur: Not broccoli, not turkey!)
How 'bout Leftovers Goulash?                                 

(Arthur: It's got to taste like ice cream! Hey!)
(Arthur and D.W.: Hey!)

Dad:

Take a pot
And add a lot
Of codfish mash
And kidney hash!

Let's add some snails
And catfish tails,
Some brains and feet
Can't wait to eat!

A sloppy scoop
Of runny gloop
A squid on toast
A rhubarb roast

Some tofu stew
With extra goo
Leftover squash
It's called goulash!
(Hey!)

(Arthur and D.W.: We're not hungry anymore! Hey!)
