It’s a fun song to dance to, and the beat is kinda like Steve Martin’s old “King Tut”, from the 70’s: yer s’posed to do Egyptian-type moves (like the hieroglyphics), or imagine yourself a camel gallumping along. Lots of snaky neck movement…SCOTS is all about theatrics, and getting the audience to let go and dance.
The lyrics weave in the snack cracker reference “Don’t go around hungry now” is the slogan of Lance snacks, a southern staple. As said, the oatmeal pie reference is to Little Debbie snacks, another southern favorite. The connection might be that them snacks are what sustain you on the culinary desert of road life, and SCOTS is on the road a lot, for 20 years. Sounds like Rick Miller(lead singer, guitarist & writer) just got to having some fun with that juxtaposition.
Good question, though, what he meant by it. You can ask the question at their website, in the “Dave’s Mailbag” section, under the Contact section. I’m curious, too, now, though, about the camel/snack connection, and Mr. Miller is an old friend of mine, so I’ll ask him next time I see him.
