Yes, the song is inane, nothing profound in it - that is what I think everytime I hear the song.

But there might be more about it. It's just some thoughts about food in an ordinary person's mind - the most ordinary, that's the reason why it's the most odd song.

It reminds me of the Irish novel Ulysses and the musician John Cage, who composed the strangest pieces of music. As John puts, the real music are non-musical. Maybe the greatest lyrics are not poetic, and are just pieces of somebody's mind.

Maybe I've just thought too much about it. But at least it's a funny song!
