Cold Pizza For Breakfast

from Future Fossils

Some people eat grapefruit for breakfast
Some people eat oatmeal
There are those
Who are sure
Granola is a very good deal
But not me
I don't go for that stuff
When it comes to nourishment
I get more than enough
Nothing satisfies my taste
Then sittin' down to a great big plate of

Cold Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of anchovies
Make this meal well rounded
I want Cold Pizza for Breakfast
And a pinch 'o cold spaghetti will do
But there's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza with you.

My man takes me out for the evening
He treats me so nice
We go to the movies
We go dancing
We go for more than a slice
Yes we order a pie
We eat what we can
We take the rest home
That's part of the plan
And in the morning when sun rise
He sees that crazy look in my eyes

I want Cold Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of onion rings
Make this world go round
I want Cold Pizza for Breakfast
And a pinch 'o cold spaghetti will do
But there's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza with you


NOTE FROM CHRISTINE:  I REWROTE THIS BRIDGE PART -- THIS IS THE ORIGINAL.  THE REWRITE APPEARS AT THE END OF THE SONG:

Herman Tarnower would never approve
I can hear him (I can hear him - I can hear him)
Spinning in his grave
He could be alive eating pizza right now
Except for when it came to dating women
The good doctor did not know how to behave
ya ya ya
Herman was healthy
But Herman is dead
(Pizza surely didn't do him in)
A Pizza surely didn't do him in
(Pizza surely didn't do him in)
Jean Harris is behind bars
Lookin' quite sad
And think, do you see what I'm gettin' at
You tend to kill when you're skinny
But not when you're fat

So gimmie Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of pepperoni
Make this girl well round, ah
Give me Cold Pizza for Breakfast
And a pinch 'o cold spaghetti will do
But there's nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza with you
Nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin' Cold Pizza oh oh oh
Nothin' in the world that I like better than
Eatin'
Cold Pizza
With you.

REWRITE OF BRIDGE:

I KNOW THAT OPRAH WOULD NEVER APPROVE
BUT OPRAH WINFREY HAS A PRIVATE COOK (SHE DOESN'T COOK)
SHE DOESN'T BUY GROCERIES BECAUSE SHE'S SO BUSY
STARRING IN HER VERY OWN TV SHOW
AND READING FANCY BOOKS (AND MEMOIRS)

OPRAH IS SKINNY -- WELL FOR A WHILE SHE WAS SKINNY
OPRAH ONLY EATS SENSIBLE FOODS
(NO JUNK IN THE TRUNK)
BUT WOULDN'T YOU JUST LOVE IT
IF MAYBE JUST ONCE
OPRAH CALLED HER LOCAL PIZZA PARLOR
AND SAID 'BOYS, I'M IN THE MOOD FOR . . .
