Hi, all,

 

No, this is not a serious song...just something to make you laugh. (Might go best with a big glass of wine!)

 

The Cheese Song

 

When you’re standing in the kitchen

And your appetite is itchin’

For something more than leftover Chinese

You could have a piece of jerky

Or a slice of roasted turkey

But you know that what you really want is Cheese

 

You can slice it, you can grate it

You don’t have to complicate it

It’s a balm for all the troubles of the day

Whether Swiss or Brie or Cheddar

Cheese makes everything much better

Especially when you add some Chardonnay

 

Cheese

Makes me weak in the knees

You don’t need advanced degrees

To know the ecstasy of Cheese

 

Those nights when you’re a single

And your preference is to mingle

You don’t need a group of friends to feel at ease

Grab some Parm and Gorgonzola

Pepper Jack and Cambozola

And embrace the camaraderie of cheese

 

There is a minor downside

They say cheese affects the backside

The heart and maybe arteries to boot

But the joys of cheese are multiple

So I decline on principle

To settle for a low-fat substitute

 

Cheese

Makes me weak in the knees

You don’t need advanced degrees

To know the ecstasy of Cheese

 

Cheese comes in such varieties

You can face social anxieties

But I say “Be Yourself,” and here’s the proof:

After many-a Margarita

I chose to serve Velveeta

And my status as a host went through the roof

 

There’s burrata, mozzarella,

Emmentaler, appenzeller

You don’t have to master what the difference is

But if you seek a designation

That reflects your education

Study hard and earn the title of Cheese Whiz

 

Cheese

Makes me weak in the knees

You don’t need advanced degrees

To know the ecstasy of Cheese

I really liked this. Good fun read - and cheesy of course!

Flows nicely and trips off the tongue - like wine and you know what.

Grate stuff. Err I mean great.

This is great. Reminds me of the masters of the genre, Donald Swan and Michael Flanders; they would be delighted with it. Needs to be out there now.

I think this is great. Stellar in fact. Nicely done. If I had to really dig in and nitpick about something. If I was forced to make some sort of comment, I see something very, very minor and I could just be off my rocker.

 

You don’t need advanced degrees

To know the ecstasy of Cheese

 

To me, advanced degrees and ecstasy don't go together perfectly. For example: I could see "You don't need advanced degrees to know the genius of cheese."  That's not a fix necessarily, just illustrating what I mean. I really like the use of "ecstasy" though when describing food. I will also add that if I heard this in a song I wouldn't give it a thought. It's only because it's in the lyrics critique section that I made the comment. And I know how you darned perfectionists are. LOL Great lyrics. :)

Thanks, guys!  I just threw it in here for fun, and it's nice to hear that you like it. 

 

Now, what do i do with it?  Call the National Cheese Council, if there is such a thing?

Haaa!! That's pretty good!! (I'm also a cheese fan, especially blue and even sometimes a good English stilton).

 

"Difference is" / "Cheeze Whiz" were awkward rhythm and rhyme lines, but otherwise that lyric could be a cheese jingle, dontcha think?  :-)

JohnCraig: You sent me to the internet to research Donald Swan and Michael Flanders.  New to me. Thanks!

Just1L: Thank you.  I appreciate your input and am glad you like the "ecstacy of cheese."

Peggy:  That's a high compliment, coming from you.  Thank you!

Scotsman89: Thanks for the post. Yes, it's a "cheesy" song!

Vara La Fey: I always like hearing from you. We're on the same wavelength as far as talking to cheese marketers.  (In the works.)

Leo:  Thanks for the kudos. Glad you like it.
