Show Me The First Name Of My Baloney

Parody lyrics by Chris Chin
May 2001

Intro
Show me the first name of my baloney

So many brands for a luncheon meat
It's hard to shop in the grocery aisle
So much to buy; what's on sale, oh tell me
Frozen foods, on aisle one
Deli counter, bakery buns
My favourite sandwich will be done
Just tell me...

Chorus
Show me the first name of my baloney
O, S, C, A, R...I need to know it (tell me why)
M, A, Y, E, R's the last name too
There's something in my sandwich

Lunch goes on as it always will
Same old thing, but I love it still
I always say "it tastes okay"
Life is but an endless stream
A Wonder-bread-and-baloney dream
My favourite sandwich will be done
Just tell me...

Chorus, repeat

Bridge
There's no other brand
It's like no brand I know
The heart of my lunch, body and soul
How can it be you're asking me
To try a brand that I don't know

(guitar solo)

You are missing in my lunch
Tell me why, I can't eat there where you are

Chorus, repeat vocal ad lib to fade
