    Here's another song game. Post titles or lyrics that mention food.

    America The Beautiful: amber waves of grain.
    OLD MacDonald Had A Farm: chickens, pigs, cows.
    Molly Malone: Fish, cockles, and mussels.

    Shortning Bread. A song associated with Nelson Eddy. Vivian
    Vance is on the same Youtube page singing the same song w/
    help from her co-stars.

    Yes, We Have No Bananas.
    If I Knew You Were Coming, I'da Baked A cake.

    "MacArthur Park" Someone left the cake out in the rain

    "Come On'a My House" Apples, plums, apricots, grapes, etc.

    "The Good Ship Lollipop" Candy canes, chocolate bar, devils food cake, lemonade

    "Candy Kisses"

    "If I Had a Nickle" If I had a nickle, here's what I would do, I'd spend it all on candy and give it all to you

    Hi GB

    I couldn't think of a new game, so I recycled this one. A nice collection
    you posted. Interesting that all these songs are pretty old.

    I'm A Lonely Little Petunia In An Onion Patch
    One Meat Ball: You get no bread with one meatball.

    Hot Dog. The seem to be two songs with this title. One recorded by Elvis.
    One by Led Zeppelin.
    Three Little Fishes. Novelty tune.

    Yep, they're all old, like me. :) Guess no one writes 'food songs' anymore.

    "Tutti Frutti" by Little Richard

    "When the moon hits your eye like a big Pizza Pie..."

    "Tea For Two"

    "Blueberry Hill"

    "Shoo Fly Pie" and an apple pan dowdy..."

    Morning, GB Good ones.

    Here are two songs that mention lots of eats.
    The 12 Days of Christmas: partridges, doves, hens, geese, calling birds,
    swans, and pears.
    It Was A Real Nice Clambake from Carousel. Codfish, clams, onions, salted
    pork, lobsters, oysters.

    Hi Tiger Lilea

    "Honey, Honey" reminds me of Bobby Goldsboro's Honey. A big hit during 1968,
    the year I lived in Las Vegas. Seems like it was on the radio constantly along with
    several Glen Campbell songs. Bella is looking good. I 'spect you do too. I'm 78,
    but (as GB said) I can still pass for 108. She was topping my silly remark.

    Oranges and Lemons say the Bells of St. Clements. From The Bells of Rhymney.
    Gospel hymn. Bread of Heaven.

    Farmer in the Dell; Cheese, cow, pig.
    Battle Hymn of the Republic; grapes.

    This is the Land of Milk and Honey from the musical Milk and Honey.
    Written by Jerry Herman who wrote Hello, Dolly.

    Was asleep briefly. Going back to bed.
