Name That Tune Again


It happened again. A tune got stuck in my head, so I just had to deal with it. And this is how I do that. If you recognize the meter and guess the tune, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re old, but you’re probably on your way in that direction.

Donuts, Cake, Pie, Brownies, Too

I need wholesome food, it’s true,
but just beans will never do;
So I beg of you:
Donuts, cake, pie, brownies, too.

Salad’s fine, but not alone;
Soup is good, but when I’m done,
I need sweetness, too:
Donuts, cake, pie, brownies, too.

Bring me a burger, bring me some fries,
Bring me a milkshake, and please supersize;
Show me you love me with a big slice of pie;
Mix up some batter, get ready to fry.

I don’t mean to be so sad;
It’s been so long since I’ve had
Even just a few
Donuts, cake, pie, brownies,
Donuts, cake, pie, brownies,
Donuts, cake, pie, brownies, too.

There. Now, when my song-writing career takes off, you’ll be able to say you knew me when.
