The lyrics were posted in a thread where they might get lost, so it might be a good idea to post them here. I think this is my favorite Christin Lavin song.

Here's a song for you Hippie Chick!

Cold Pizza For Breakfast

Words and Music by Christine LavinMusic ASCAP & Happy Valley Music BMI Copyright 1986, Palindrome Records, Philo


COLD PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST
(Christine Lavin)

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

Herman Tarnaur 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.


It's one of Nathan and my favorites!

Christine Lavin came out with "Cold Pizza" and "Sensitive New Age Guys? in the 1980s, I think. She has changed "Guys" over the years. Has she made changes to "Pizza," or doesn't she sing that one any more?
Poor Herman is long forgotten, and nobody's likely to get that joke any longer.
But cold pizza is still the Staff of Life, so the song must go on.

My wife performed Christine's Prince Charles song in the eighties at a few clubs and a festival. That one is no longer relevant.
I believe she still des Cold Pizza.

Thanks a lot Glenraphael. I'll give that a shot.

The FIRST version Christine did was about poor Herman. The SECOND version she did was called "Cold Pizza For Breakfast Redux". It featured brand new FULLY UP TO DATE cultural references in the bridge...that were based around Oprah Winfrey's weight loss.

So. Um. Yeah. I *guess* that's still kind of vaguely topical, but...

(Here's the Oprah version on youtube:

Cold Pizza Redux

I think it's time for a THIRD version of that topical bridge. so I wrote my own. I picture it as an argument over what constitutes a healthy and reasonable breakfast. Here's mine:

"Some say that Soylent is healthy and clean
If you like powder that's tasteless and green
The dough is full of carbs, and cheese is full of grease
You could try heating it first, but I'm just eating it
The worst part of pizza is when it's all gone
There was a price in the pounds I've put on
I'll lose it back next week - I might try Paleo
But a pizza-less diet's sure to...faileo"

So eat pizza for breakfast...

I'll likely include this in my set next month at gafilk.

OK, so here's my transcription of the REDUX, transcribed from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhQpm11JhhE. This is the "Oprah" version.

Eatin' Cold Pizza with you

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 a fabulous TV show and reading fancy books.
(and memoirs)
Oprah got skinny
Well, thank God not too skinny
But now Oprah only eats sensible food
(No junk in the trunk)
But wouldn't you just love it
If she called her local pizza parlor, said,
"Boys, this is Oprah. Guess what I'm in the mood for!"

Cold Pizza for Breakfast
Warm Coke to wash it down (Ahhhhh)
Maybe a couple of carrot curls
Make this girl well rounded.
Give me Cold Pizza for Breakfast
In a pinch cold spaghetti will do
For 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.
