Songs with a Food Reference

I ain't sure if this has been done before. If so, I apologize and stand duly chastised.
I thought it might be interestin'.
I will start it off with a song written by Shel Silverstein and recorded by Dr. Hook.

  • Honey Pie - Beatles
  • Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Beatles
  • Octopus's Garden - Beatles
  • Scrambled Eggs (original working title for "Yesterday") - Beatles
  • Cold Turkey - John Lennon
...and don't forget they recorded on Apple records.

Others:
  • American Pie - Don McLean
  • All That Meat and No Potatoes - Louie Armstrong
  • Red Beans and Rice-ly Yours - Louie Armstrong
  • Orange Crush - R.E.M.
  • I Want Candy - The Bow-wow-wows

I couldn't think of only ONE song. As soon as I did, another one would pop into my head.

Steve forgot the best one........


Cheeseburger in paradise
By: jimmy buffett
1978
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits
Made it nearly seventy days
Losiní weight without speed, eatiní sunflower seeds
Drinkiní lots of carrot juice and soakiní up rays

But at night Iíd had these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat
Not zuchinni, fettucini or bulghar wheat
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
Not too particular not too precise (paradise)
Iím just a cheeseburger in paradise

Heard about the old time sailor men
They eat the same thing again and again
Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
Well it reminds me of the menu at a holiday inn

Times have changed for sailors these days
When Iím in port I get what I need
Not just havanas or bananas or daiquiris
But that american creation on which I feed

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Medium rare with mustard íbe nice (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
Iím just a cheeseburger in paradise

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well good God almighty which way do I steer for my

Chorus:
Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Makiní the best of every virtue and vice (paradise)
Worth every damn bit of sacrifice (paradise)
To get a cheeseburger in paradise
To be a cheeseburger in paradise
Iím just a cheeseburger in paradise

Me thinks he had to jump on a conf call. I didn't see Margueriteville (J Buffett) on Steve's list...it is definitely on mine!
