1. Peaches by The Presidents Of The United States Of America

Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin’ to the country,
Gonna eat me a lot of peaches
Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches

2. Dinner Bell by They Might Be Giants

I don’t want a pizza, I don’t want a piece of peanut brittle
I don’t want a pear. I don’t want a bagel I don’t want a bean
I wouldn’t like a bag of beef or a beer or a cup of chowder,
corn, cake, or creamed cauliflower
Cuz I’m waiting for the dinner bell to do the bell thing
Dinner bell dinner bell ring

3. Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk by Rufus Wainwright

Cigarettes and chocolate milk
These are just a couple of my cravings
Everything it seems I like’s a little bit stronger
A little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me

If I should buy jellybeans
Have to eat them all in just one sitting
Everything it seems I like’s a little bit sweeter
A little bit fatter, a little bit harmful for me

4. Cherry Pie by Warrant

She’s my cherry pie
Cool drink of water such a sweet surprise
Taste so good make a grown man cry
Sweet cherry pie, yeah

5. Eggs & Sausage by Tom Waits

nighthawks at the diner
of Emma’s 49er, there’s a rendezvous
of strangers around the coffee urn tonight
all the gypsy hacks, the insomniacs
now the paper’s been read
now the waitress said

eggs and sausage and a side of toast
coffee and a roll, hash browns over easy
chile in a bowl with burgers and fries
what kind of pie?

6. Savoy Truffle by the Beatles

Creme tangerine and montelimat
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes, you know it’s good news
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

Cool cherry cream and a nice apple tart
I feel your taste all the time we’re apart
Coconut fudge really blows down those blues
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

7. Milk & Cereal by G.Love & Special Sauce

Milk and Cereal
Cereal, Cereal
Milk and Cereal
Cereal and Milk, Cereal and MIlk…

I dont want my Wheaties
Give ‘em to the needy
Feelin kinda greedy
I keep em for myself (X9)

No Grapenuts for grandma
Mom likes Special K
You cant pinch an inch (X7)
They’re magically delicious
Ya can’t catch my Lucky Charms*
(pink hearts, yellow moons,blue diamonds, green clovers)
A is for Apple J is for Jack
You step on a crack
Youll break your mother’s back
Rice Krispies
Ooh Boo Berry

8. Cheeseburger In Paradise by Jimmy Buffett

Cheeseburger in paradise (paradise)
Heaven on earth with an onion slice (paradise)
Not too particular not too precise (paradise)
I’m just a cheeseburger in paradise

Heard about the old time sailor men
They eat the same thing again and again
Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
Well it reminds me of the menu at a holiday inn

9. Ham ‘N’ Eggs by A Tribe Called Quest

Gum drops and gummy bears tease my eyes
A sight for sore ones and some bore pies
And other goodies that are filled with goop
With fried apple roots
Delectable delights, control my appetites
Mine is for me, right, but I know what I like
Chicken for lunch, chicken for my dinner
Chicken, chicken, chicken, I’m a finger lickin winner
When breakfast time comes, I don’t recognize
Pig in the pan or a pair of bogey chides
Mixed with stewed tomatoes, home fried potatoes
Or anything with flair, cook it, I’m in there
Pay attention to the Tribe as we impose
This is how it goes

10. Artichoke by Cibo Matto

My heart is like an artichoke
I eat petals myself one by one
Until I feel enough
Until I lose to laugh
When I end to eat the last one
I will tear my drops
I will lose my lips
Though I can’t stop plucking off
I can’t see my core

11. All You Can Eat by the Fat Boys

(Prince Markie D): $3.99 for all you can eat?
Well, I’m a stuff my face to a funki beat!
(Kool Rock Ski): We’re gonna walk inside, and guess what’s up:
Put some food in my plate, and some Coke in my cup
(Prince Markie D): Give me some chicken, franks, and fries
And you can pass me a lettuce. I’m a pass it by
(Kool Rock Ski): So keep shoveling, (Ha!) onto my plate
Give me some sweets and lots of cake
(Prince Markie D): Give me some hot Macaroni and Cheese!
(Human Beat Box): Give me, some more food PLEASE!!!!
(Kool Rock Ski): Give me some buloni, salami, and ham
Toast with butter and strawberry jam
(Prince Markie D): I love it whether the food is cold or hot
Put a burger on the plate, and it’ll hit the spot
(Kool Rock Ski): We’ll eat everything. An incredible feat
$3.99 for all you can eat!

12. Eat it by Weird Al

Have some more yogurt, have some more spam / It doesn’t matter if it’s fresh or canned / Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it / Don’t you make me repeat it / Have a banana, have a whole bunch / It doesn’t matter what you have for lunch
