Not a folk song, but "Food, Glorious Food!" (from "Oliver!") would seem an obvious candidate...

From barley we get home-brewed ale,
From malt our whiskey comes,
But from the oats in Staffordshire
Do come our lumpytums.

*

There's folk that's teetotalers, they drinks water neat.
It must rot their gullets and given them webbed feet,
But I always say that a man can't grow stale
On boiled beef and bacon and good English ale.

Ale, ale, glorious ale!
Served up in pewter, it tells its own tale.
Some folks likes cabbages, some curlye kale,
But give I boiled parsnips,
And a great dish of taters,
And a lump of fatty bacon,
And a pint of good ale!

hooray for the fresh and spicy additions to this smorgasboard of tunes.
Yes, it was while listening to Deb Cowan's version of Good Fish Chowder that I decided that my thanksgiving show would be centered around food! inspiring, that! luckily listening to songs about food is not likely to add pounds as actually consuming it does!

Kate Campbell has several songs about food...Funeral Food and casseroles as well as holy tomato seeds -- Jesus and Tomatoes coming soon! Let's see... who does Animal Crackers in my Soup? oh yes, Shirley Temple!

I never did get litigious with the company that produced those awful tasting dills but I did get a great song out of the deal. I figure a jar full of sour pickles in exchange for a sweet song is a fair trade.

Hmmm, I'm rather surprised after viewing my post in this thread from way back on March 15th of 1999. In that post my song suggestion is linked, via some strange computational algorithm, to another song, not the song that I had in mind. Weird!

I, too, enjoy food songs. I've written a couple of them since then. A nice video of my latest food songMakin' Bacon was captured on April 4th, 2012 as I was offering it to listeners at Sliders Cafe in Carnation, WA.

And here's a link to an audio file of my song A Dilly Of A Tale (The Pickle Song). This song was inspired into existence via a thread post that I was answering right here at The Mudcat Cafe. I recall that we were having a conversation about a woman who was going to take McDonalds to court, because she burned her lip on hot pickle. As I was writing my response, about having recently consumed some just plain bad dill pickles and wondering if I had a case of my own, my song was born. Enjoy!

Christine Lavin made a compilation CD, One Meat Ball with some great versions of food songs, including Dave Van Ronk explaining the title song, Tom Paxton singing "Bottle of Wine" in French, and Debi Smith singing "Pie" with Doc Watson accompanying.

Though the Berrymans' witty When Did We Have Sauerkraut? song was mentioned earlier, they regularly mention food in their songs. Crab Canape is a lovely duet of dueling food sensibilities. Orange Cocoa Cake is a whole recipe interspersed with mom-to-kids chat interruptions. As your show is Thanksgiving-oriented, their Uncle Dave's Grace would be a gem. Hills, Herdman & Mangsen recorded a great version of it on one of their Winter albums.

Cindy Mangsen's Cat Tales album includes Open That Can detailing food cravings feline, canine, and human.

Deb Cowan's latest album has a fun (how to sing along with) version of the previously mentioned Good Fish Chowder (and is one of MANY reasons to get this excellent album) Also previously mentioned Dad's Dinner Pail is the title song of another album of hers.

Hot Soup's Soup Happens has the song Soup detailing the pleasures of hot soup on cold winter days.

Chicago's duo Small Potatoes Time Flies album has their Avocado song that was featured in a car's sound system sample.

Les Barker is a great source of parody songs featuring food (for as many as there are, he ought to be a good deal wider than he is...) Besides Custard Creams and Hard Cheeses of Old England my favorite is My Husband's Got No Porridge in Him (Food and Fractured Faerie Tales all in one!). I can't remember the rest without digging the albums out - I just remember more.

Long before I got in over my head in folk, I had a brief flirtation with light Jazz, after falling in love with the writing of Michael Franks who does several food songs, though admittedly dripping cutesy innuendo. His Art of Tea album has what might be his best known song Popsicle Toes along with Eggplant

Good luck with your show & happy food contemplation for Thanksgiving

Joanne in Cleveland

Isn't there a cowboy song about biscuits and gravy? (all i could find was this parody by Lady Antebellum www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXsN-J-ASqg

we sing several food songs including GROUNDHOG.

i just found an all girl bluegrass band called Sweet Potato Pie.
Their title song is featured online...

Subject: Lyr Add: TASTES LIKE CHICKEN (Austin Lounge Lizard
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 21 Aug 08 - 08:34 PM

Transcribed from an archived radio program (and then I found it here). To hear it, click here and then advance to 00:24:43.

TASTES LIKE CHICKEN
Hank Card/Conrad Deisler/Gail Fisher/Eamon McLoughlin/Kristen Nelson Card/Tom Pittman/Boo Resnick

I have traveled round the world from Fiji to Nairobi,
Sampled the exotic fare from Chihuahua to the Gobi.
From Land's End to Helsinki and all points in between,
I've been fed the finest Finnish food and British haute cuisine

From the malts of Montezuma to the s'mores of Tripoli,
From the mints of Machu Picchu to the doughnuts of the deep Dead Sea.
Let me set you straight, my friends: it always seemed to be,
Mammals, fish, and reptiles all taste the same to me.

Chipped beef on toast, have a friend for pot roast,
Tender little piggy toes with a bit of Bordeaux,
French-fried mince pies right between the fish eyes,
Half-baked pound cake, Shake 'n Bake, and rattlesnake,

Slop, glop, (taste like chicken)
Gruel, drool, (taste like chicken)
Spumoni, baloney, (taste like chicken)
Taste like chicken to me.

Quattro formaggi in an ancient Tuscan palace,
Mystery meats impaled on sticks at the State Fair in Dallas,
Leaning towers of pizza and spaghetti bolognaise.
How I love thee, pu pu platter! Let me count the ways.

I've scouted out the finest kraut in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
I've filled a dish with gefilte fish with a Jew named Ole Yohnson,
The joys of vegan nut loaf with a side of lychee ramen.
From French nouveau to lutefisk, they all have this in common:

Alligator, Darth Vader skewered on a light saber
Burger topped with special sauce, a bit o' car exhaust
Hot corn, cold corn, bring along a demijohn,
Kumquats, Tater Tots, Devon cream with lots o' clots,

Stones, bones, (taste like chicken)
Slush, mush, (taste like chicken)
Hummus, pumice, (taste like chicken)
Taste like chicken to me.

Fillet of bunny when it's sunny is lip-smackin' good.
Monkey brains when it rains is my favorite food. [Pronounced to rhyme with "good"]
Artichoke is okey-doke with a slice of tongue.
Manatee's a dream to me, especially when it's young.

Catguts, rat butts, any-way-you-can nuts,
Groundhog, boiled dog, love a little legless frog,
Orange pop, gumdrops, Shari Lewis lamb chops,
Collard greens from New Orleans, Chianti and fava beans,

Blubber, flubber, (taste like chicken)
Masa, kielbasa, (taste like chicken)
Lizards, gizzards, (taste like chicken)
Taste like chicken to me.

Chalupas, pupas, (taste like chicken)
Cookies, Wookiees, (taste like chicken)
Soda, Yoda, (taste like chicken)
Order, chaos, (taste like chicken)
Dopey, Grumpy, (taste like chicken)
Donner and Blitzen, (taste like chicken)
Democrats, Republicans, (taste like chicken)
Betty, Veronica, (taste like chicken)
Taste like chicken to me.

From: Stewie
Date: 04 Oct 07 - 11:31 AM

And a classic from Robert Crumb's Cheap Suits:

GET A LOAD OF THIS
(Armstrong/Dodge)

My girlfriend's over but I sent her away
'cause she almost knocked the supper off my TV tray
Bring a loada'
RC Cola
TV Dinner
A plate of Twinkies
It takes a pink burrito
For to keep me clean
(For to keep me clean)

TV dinner is the meal that I'm lovin'
Take off the foil, 30 minutes in the oven
Bring a loada'
RC Cola
TV Dinner
A plate of Twinkies
It takes a pink burrito
For to keep me clean
(For to keep me clean)


Don't like no carrots, can't stand no peas
But a pack of Ding Dong bring me down to my knees
Bring a loada'
RC Cola
TV Dinner
A plate of Twinkies
It takes a pink burrito
For to keep me clean
(For to keep me clean)

Girlfriend's sweet, she ain't like no other
Let's me spend all day in front of that 24-inch color
Brings a loada'
RC Cola
TV Dinner
A plate of Twinkies
It takes a pink burrito
For to keep me clean
(For to keep me clean)

Only one thing makes me jump up and holler
TV breaks down during Bowling for Dollars
Get a loada'
RC Cola
TV Dinner
A plate of Twinkies
It takes a pink burrito
For to keep me clean
(For to keep me clean)

(Oh yeah)
(That's right)

Perhaps this is stretching a bit, because gum doesn't really count as food (and it's a TPA novelty song), but I've always loved "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight," if only for its very evocative title.

This isn't quite a food song, but Marti Brom has a great one called "Eat My Words", about love gone wrong. The chorus goes:

"Well, gimme a fork, gime a knife,
I'm gonna eat my words . . .
Yeah, sit me down, fill me up a platter,
Great big platter of that love chitter-chatter,
And if I need a drink on the side,
I'll take a little swallow of my pride."

We sing it "Fifty pounds of 'possum". Five pounds is the appetizer. Shish-kebab if you can get enough of them.



I hope to God I never actually see a fifty-pound possum, though. Yikes.

Without resorting to novelty tunes:

Old-time edibles that don't involve alcohol

How Many Biscuits Can You Eat?
Corn & Beans
Ida Red [even if it's not named for the apple]
Red Apple Juice
Greasy Meat [good tune, lousy title]
Sugar in the Gourd [both of them]
Tater Patch
Crow Black Chicken / Old Joe Clark/anything involving the "chicken pie" verse

Others

Wayne Hancock's "Smell that Bread"
Crabs in the Skillet

I'm not going to speculate on how many of those are actually about sex, in the tradition of old-time/country/rockabilly/bluegrass borrowing blues themes.

HOT CHILI
by Tim Davis (as sung by the Steve Miller Band)

Sittin' here thumbin' through the pages of a magazine
The pages tell me come right away, you know what I mean
The air is so spacey, the ladies are lacey
And there is nothing you gotta do
But eat hot chili

Hot chili is groovy
After a movie or watching TV
But when you order
South of the border
Soon you see
It's hotter than noon
It will melt your spoon
So buddy, you better get ready
For eatin' hot chili
It's not silly
To eat hot chili

Passport in hand
I made my plan to get away
Hopped on a plane
Rode out of the rain the very same day
Soon as I landed
My wish it was granted
Lovely senoritas always drinkin' tequila, yeah, yeah, yeah
And eatin' hot chili
Eatin' hot chili
I love hot chili

Ooh I love it hot chili
Hot chili, ooh
