From: Áine
Date: 21 Feb 00 - 04:01 PM

This CHALLENGE! is being posted by popular demand (it would seem) and/or by thread creep from another thread. (For info and inspiration, check out this thread).

The CHALLENGE! is to write a song about food -- your favorite food, your least favorite food, the things in your refrigerator, etc. Any food-based topic is fine. Suggested titles are:

My Bulgur Is A 'Bulgin';
A Smoothie In The Morning And I'm Fit For Love;
Why Waste Two Dollars On Cheap Rotel When A Plunger And A Privy Will Do Just As Well;
You're My Peanut, I'm Your Butter;
My Lettuce Done Growed Legs And Walked Outa My Life

. . . I think you get the idea. OK, go for it CHALLENGE!RS!!

Ahhh....foo songs. I have written many Campbell's soup songs, along with my sister....and we also, over the course of 4 years, wrote more than 100 Damon's Ribs songs, anything from imitation-rap to Renaissance ballads. Ahh..you shoulda been in Printmaking class with me this morning...we were all cracking up, including our hilarious teacher, over musical Printmaking jokes. I'd tell them, but they'd be kinda hard to grasp...if you want to see some soup and/or ribz songs, I'll be happy to oblige!

Cracker meal, cracker meal
I love the way you make me feel
It never has been known to fail
Especially when eaten stale!

Come on, Mbo -- The challenge is to write a new, complete song -- no relying on your own mouldy oldies now. I think a couple of good titles for your song could be Cold Hocks, Cold Heart or Keep Your Hands Off My Ham Or I'll Drop My Hocks On You or My Bacon Is Taken or My Heart Is Sugar Cured Over You . . . come on, be a mensch!

Today the Chocolate Left Me Brown

Summer day, flies a-swarmin' On your skin, sweat's a-formin'. Come the three o'clock snackie blues The chocolate bar begins to ooze.

Oh dear, what's the matter? The sweetie is stuck to the wrapper. There's this yearning in my glands, But now the stuff's all over my hands.

I'll never get a mouthful In this dragonfly-time of the year. So I'll dream of firm brown fields And shed a tear.

Oh Bulgur is a tempting treat
So nutritious and so sweet
Bulgur wheat, bulgur wheat
Makes my little ticker beat
Bulgur bulgur bulgur wheat
Garnished with a bit of peat
Oh give me bulgur straight or neat!

There's Mazzeppa's fighting band
A bulgur smoothie in each hand
Bulgur fresh, bulgur canned
I wish I was in bulgur land
bulgur bulgur bulgur and
More b-bulgur white as sand
On Tahiti's sunny strand!

Wars have came and wars have went
All for bulgur's tempting scent
Bulgur mortgage, bulgur rent
For it I'd give my last red cent
Every dollar would be spent
Till all my body's pores would vent
Bulgur bulgur permanent!
Buuuuuuuuulgur! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuulgar!

You're making me hungry!!

Forever is a long time,
Your life you cannot plan.
I want to tell you this, my dear -
I love you more than spam.

Life is short, or brief.
The sandwich of time pauses for no man
Or cat or dog whose food looks and smells
Remarkably like spam.

So when I say I love you
Compare yourself if you can
To the over-processed, over-priced, pink, salty, barf-inspiring meat flavoured food
Called Spam.

Apologies for lack of scantion etc. I'm on my way to work, and haste makes for bad rhyming and rhythmning!

This is based on an actual event in my life...

Long, long time ago
I can still remember
How fudge ripple used to taste so grand
And I knew if I held it right
And kept the cone out of the light
Maybe it would not melt on my hand
But though I thought I was quite tricky
I couldn't keep from getting sticky
Bad news when the top scoop
Fell on a pile of dog poop
And I recall I cried like hell
And wasn't feeling very well
The day my ice cream fell

And I was singing:
Farewell, I thought you were swell
But in a test for the best it was too soon to tell
I was standin' there a-holdin' just the sugary shell
The day my ice cream fell

Sub-Chef Food Poisoning Blues

(Note:  If you haven.t heard Dylan sing the original on the Bringing it All Back Home
album, listening to it is a pre-requisite. Otherwise it looks entirely erratic instead of
divinely subtle and fragrant)

(Open to the sounds of a country rock boogiewoogie intro joined by
slick steel slides setting the nasal whing-ding urban stomping  tone).

Spaw's old medicine
Started growing fur again
Put it on the pavement
Leave it to the government
The man in the cook's coat
Laid out his hot dog,
Says he's got sea weed
Wants to put it in a log

Look out man
It's mold in a can
God knows why
But it isn't gonna fry
You better dice and sliver
Heatin' up the liver
The man in the dhoti,
 fixing up a roti,
Handin' out sorbet
Wants to find a new way!

Maggie brings brown rice
Says it makes the soup nice
Talkin bout a paté
Gonna make a bouchée
Goin' back to New York
Bring back jerk pork
Goes with a light port
Good enough to export

Look out girl
It's startin' to curl
Gotta keep the heat low
When ya make a compot
Better pick a clean stick
Pinch and peel and tater prick,
Keep sauteeing
Keep up with the flaying
You don't need an aubergine
to keep the sweet medaillion,
Ahh,
WIne kebab, mekitsas
Deep pan pizzas
Feta cheese and chicken
Lady-finger-lickin!
Fry bread, cheese head
Scald, roast, cream, shred
Drop a good toredo
FIx it up Alfedo!

Look out, goil
You're soups gonna boil!
Tabasco, gallo
Wasabi and volaille-o
Zup au poivres, darjeeling
Keep up with the peeling
Girls gonna get fazed
By my smoked beef glaze,
Don't do the tango!
Watch the sorbet mango!
Ah mill it, fillet, don' ask how they kill it,
Short cuts, beef butts,
Get the extra Virgin dressed
Bound ta be a  success
Please her, please him,  purée
Chopped ice, flambé,
Set it to 350
And get busy on the sautée!

Look out kid
You're liftin the lid!
Better chop the nuts up finer
Serve it to the diner
No Coriander!
We aren't here to pander!
Eggs and spring onions
Gonna cure your bunions,
The chef is  gonna killya if you fill it with vanilla!!
 

(Whining steel slides and rhythm fade out)

PO' FOOD BLUES
by Praise

I was lookin' in the icebox,
I didn't see no food.
I was lookin' in the icebox,
I didn't see no food.
Oh momma won't you feed me,
Something hot and good.

Now she's lookin' in the pantry,
She say she see some grits.
Oh now she's lookin' in the pantry,
She say she see some grits.
I had 'em six times last weekend,
I like to had the fits [sh*ts].

Well she's cookin' at the woodstove,
She got the heat up high.
Yes she's cookin' at the woodstove,
She got the heat up (way up) high.
Say she makin' something special,
Hey honey, make it right.

Well you know I love my po' food,
Never throw it out.
Sure you know I love my po' food,
Never throw it out.
Grits with redeye gravy,
Grits all in my mouth.

Now I could use me some sweet dessert, babe,
Come on and do me right.
Sure do need your sweet dessert, babe,
I know you do me right.
Honey you know I love my po' food,
I could eat it all the night.

Mother Hubbard's Blues.

My fridge is empty and my pocket book is too
My fridge it is empty, and my pocket book is empty too
If I can't find something to eat right soon, God knows what I'm a-going to do.

Looked in the larder, all I saw there was an empty plate,
Looked in the larder, nothing there except an empty plate,
And a bowl of cat food - and I tell you, that cat food looked just great.

I looked at the cat, and the cat looked me in the eye,
I looked at the cat, and the cat, she looked right back in the eye,
She says, "You touch my food mister, I swear it won't be long before you die."

Grabbed hold of that bowl, and then I grabbed hold of a spoon,
Grabbed hold of that bowl, and then I grabbed hold of a spoon,
Cat was scratching and biting and chasing me all round the room.

Woke up this morning, feel so sick and so sore
Woke up this morning, feel so sick and so sore
Got scratches all over my hands - and my pussy cat don't love me no more.

Looked in my larder - it was empty, the cat food was gone
Larder was bare, and all of the cat food was gone.
Looked out the window - why, that dog's got a fine juicy bone...


Now that is a song in exceedingly poor taste. (Some Dog biscuits on the other hand taste quite good, I used to sneak them when I was a kid. And I can remember my mother asking the butcher for a nice juicy bone for the dog, and we'd make soup out of it before he got it. But Cat food -I never could fancy it.)

'Nuther SPAM one. (oh, another tidbit of info that you really didn't need to know, but oh well: My friend met the guy who shoveled the first load of spam ever!)

The SPAM Blues. (To the tune of Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis) (Anyone want to help with the title?)

Stepped outta my house this evenin'.
Tryin' to find some food (to eat).
Went on down to the corner store,
But all they had was canned meat!

Oh I'm so hungry baby.
Oh I'm so hungry.
Oh I'm so hungry, I could die.

Now I may not be the smartest,
But I know one thing for sure,
If I eat some o' that there SPAM,
My insides will rupture.

Oh I'm so hungry baby.
Oh I'm so hungry.
Oh I'm so hungry, I could die.

So I'm standing in the corner store,
Looking longingly at the shelves,
Thought I might try some o' that there SPAM,
To satisfy my self.

Oh I'm so hungry baby.
Oh I'm so hungry.
Oh I'm so hungry, I could die.

Well I bought all o' that there SPAM,
I took it all home to eat.
I fried it all up in a nice clean pan,
And almost died from the heat.

Oh I'm so hungry baby.
Oh I'm so hungry.
Oh I'm so hungry, I could die.

Guitar/Piano solo. for a while.

It was an hour before I could touch it,
And by that time I was almost dead,
I took one whiff of the smell of the stuff,
And almost fell right on my head.

Oh I'm so hungry baby.
Oh I'm so hungry.
Oh I'm so hungry, I could die.

Wow (again)! Three wonderful blues songs in one day and each one Blue Fume Shield worth -- I'm flabbergasted!! Go CHALLENGE!RS Go!

However, having had to make due with Spam when the money didn't stretch far enough for anything else when I was little -- I just may have to work on a song in its defense. (Barky -- it does NOT smell like feet!). I have to say that it was probably due to my mother's excellent skills as a cook that I have no horrid memories of this particular processed food. My father, being a WWII veteran, held fond memories of this stuff from his army days and relished eating it with a poached egg on top of a big fat slice. Of course, he did his duty at Los Alamos, and there probably was some leakage . . .

Barkster, I'm not sure anyone can beat your Dad at songwriting. I sure can't! I'm much more of a music person, and mind you, if it's a tune any of yous is wanting for your songs, I'm the dude to call. Haven't written a song tune in a good long time!

Mbo, you and I think along the same lines. I'm pretty good at writing tunes m'self. I'm sure you are much better than myself, being more advanced in years. (not very many, though) =)

SPAM is short for SPiced hAM.

I Draw The Line

Now ev'ry body gots somethin,

Gots somethin they won't eat.

Child you know it's true.

Yeah ev'ry body gots somethin,

Some people won't eat chittlins,

Other folks don' like pigs feet.

Now I will eat most anythin,

That you can serve up on a plate,

Or in a bowl.

Yeah I will eat most anythin,

Yhat you can serve up on a plate.

It don't need to be special,

It don't need to be nothin great.

Cause I'll eat alligator and I'll eat possum too.

Sorry Spaw

You know I'll eat alligator,

And I'll eat possum too.

I loves that cracklin cornbread,

A great big heapin bowl of catfish stew.

Eat snakes and snails and spinach,

Eat sardines right out the can.

With chocolate milk.

Eat snakes and snails and spinach

Sardines right out the everlovin' can.

Eat eggs and pickeled herring,

eat a sandwich made of Spam.

But ev'ry one gots someplace.

Gots someplace where they draws the line.

You know they do now.

Lord Lord, ev'ry one gots someplace.

Baby where they draws the line.

Yeah ev'ry one gots someplace,

And babe you know that I gots mine.

I'll eat what you gots to offer,

And I'll say it's mighty fine.

You know I will

I'll eat what you gots to offer.

Yes I'll say it's mighty fine.

But don' you feed me no eggplant

Cause eggplants where I draw the line.

Well...there's some contention about that! Tunes come to me very easily if I have words to work with--part of being LI (Lyrically Impaired). Also, if I'm writing a parody of an existing song, it find it easier to write new words. But writing from your own mind requires lots of time to think of ideas. Writing purely musical tunes is often a bit harder...there are so many possible tunes floating through your mind, sometimes you really have to concentrate hard, and use your big net to try and fish out something good.

I don't know...after reading "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair, it makes you kind take a second thought at what's exactly in canned meat products! Blarg!

I know. That's one scary book. Between that and peoples frozen ears snapping off, and bludgeoning cattle with sledgehammers--almost makes you want to be veggie. I said almost! This was all happening in the '20's. Hopefully things have changed since then.

The lord of the Spam is a jolly little elf.

You can find him in a can on the supermarket shelf.

You can share him with a friend,you can keep him for yourself,

The lord of the Spam takes care of your health.

Ch. Spam, Spam, wherever you may be.

I am the lord of the Spam said he.

I live in a can with a little metal key,

And I'll teach you all to love Spam, said he.

Now we don't know where it comes from and we don't know what it's for,

But we know that it will laqst through a thermonuclear war.

You can eat it in a sandwich, you can tile your bathroom floor.

These are not the only uses hteres about a zillion more for

ch.

sung to the tune of "Lord Of The Dance". No, I didn't write it. I wish I had.
