Subject: cheese songs
From: GUEST,ed silberman
Date: 22 Jun 01 - 06:41 PM

Hi folks

I thought this might be fun. i was in a cheese shop where they had a cheese called Lincolnshire Poacher and I started to think about songs that have cheese in the title or in the lyrix and that it'd be fun to start a list of cheese songs. Right off the bat I thought of Les Barkers' "Hard Cheese of Old England" (of course!), "Here's to Cheshire, Here's to Cheese"(trad,Pete Seeger), "Butter and Cheese and All"(trad, Sam Larner), the "the cheese stands alone" verse to Farmer in the Dell(trad,Micheal Cooney), and a music-hally sort of thing I can only vaguly remember about "when the gorganzola cheese went wrong"(or some such). Let's see how a long a list we can make! Whenever possible, please indicate author or, if traditional, a singer associated with the song ( as I have done above) so that if people aren't familiar with a song you post they'll have a clue where to find it. Thank you.

A second list could be of musical cheese puns: "What A Freind We Have in Cheeses" and "Am I Bleu" for starters. Have fun!

Check it out. It's a chantey rhythm. Get the CD. The cheese shop should love it.

According to AMG - The All Music Guide:

On Pete Seeger's 1994 album "For Kids and Just Plain Folks," "Here's to Cheshire, Here's to Cheese..." is credited to somebody named Haworth.

Either way, it is apparently NOT traditional.

By the way, I entered "cheese" into the DigiTrad Lyrics Search and came up with 67 hits.

From: Joe Offer
Date: 23 Jun 01 - 04:39 AM

Dang! Here I am from Wisconsin, and I can't think of any cheese songs. Ah, but being from Wisconsin, I know that I can depend on the Berrymans. Here's one from their new CD, House Concert.

CHEESE & BEER & SNOW
(Lou & Peter Berryman, 2000)

Lunch & cheese & dinner & cheese
Fall & cheese & winter & cheese
Chips & cheese & jerky & cheese
Nuts & cheese & turkey & cheese
Cheese with pies & peppers & peas
Snow & beer & cheese
Cheese & snow & hockey & snow
Cows & snow, Milwaukee & snow
Boots & snow & dripping & snow
Ice & snow & slipping & snow
Wind & snow, a car that won't go
Beer & cheese & snow
Snow & beer & bowling & beer
Golf & beer & trolling & beer
School & beer & sledding & beer
Love & beer & (a) wedding & beer
Cold beer here, getcher beer here
Cheese & snow & beer
Slush & ale & Monterey jack
Flakes & brie & a cheap six-pack
Drifts & curds & a head of good suds
Cheese whiz, ice & couple of Buds
All keeps well at thirty degrees
Snow & beer & cheese

The above is a list of things that are at their peak at thirty degrees Fahrenheit, a common temperature in Wisconsin, my home state.



So, Ed, does this mean you have your own computer and Internet service and might become a Mudcatter, or are you still at the library? If you do a Mudcat search for your name, you will find that you are even included in the Digital Tradition (click), so maybe you'd better get in here and defend yourself.
By the way, if you have a CD player, I have a CD to send you with this song (click) on it. Also, be sure to check this thread (click).

Even if it is known who wrote "Here's to Cheshire, Here's to Cheese", I would count it as traditional in that it is a variant of "Froggie Went a-Courting", which (IIRC) was already in print in the 17th century.

If turnabout is fair play, one may mention a *cheese* that is about *songs*: Liederkranz.

Subject: Lyr Add: WHO CUT THE GORGONZOLA?
From: Sarah2
Date: 24 Jun 01 - 12:36 PM

From WWII...

WHO CUT THE GORGONZOLA?
by Frank Stanton, Paul Letram and Buff Nyveland
(C)1943 Top Music Publishers, Inc.
343 W. 87th Stt., New York City

Intro
I love the perfume counter, the smell of new mown hay,
My nose goes for the ozone that sweeps across the bay
A whiff of roasting coffee, a sniff of muscatel,
I cry for frying bacon and Number Five Chanel,
But

1)
Who cut the Gorgonzola? Oh! that awful cheese!
Who cut the Gorgonzola in the ev'ning breeze?
Open up the window; throw it out in chunks;
Plant it in the garden to scare away the skunks!
Who cut the Gorgonzola; was it friend or foe?
Give me a gasmask for my nose!
We'll take Swiss or Sweet Pimento, ev'ryone agrees
But don't cut the Gorgonzola -- choose another cheese!
Oh...

2)
Who cut the Gorgonzola? Tell me if you please!
One breath of Gorgonzola makes me wheeze and sneeze.
I don't mind Limburger, Roquefort, Dutch or cream,
But this Gorgonzola will upset all my dreams!
Who cut the Gorgonaolam rich and ripe and rare?
Why did he have to spoil the air?
Give me Smetena or Cottage, anything you please,
But don't cut the Gorgonzola -- choose another chhese!
Say,

3)
Who cut the Gorgonzola? Listen to our pleas:
Use it for the bombs on Hirohito's Japanese!
Send it to Benito -- that will fix his hash,
Spread it thick on Hitler, right on his trick mustache!
Don't spare the Gorgonzola, it will give 'em fits;
Let's have a Gorgonzola Blitz! With Fromage we'll sabotage 'em; we'll do that with ease
So, let's cut the Gorgonzola for our enemies!

***

Me mum can't recall if anybody actually recorded this little ditty -- but she remembers it being sung by some high-harmony group on the "Kraft Theatre with Bing Crosby" radio show.

Actually, my dictionary says Cheddar cheese was originally made in Cheddar in Somerset in England. That must have been before they started eating brie, eh?

I've been exiled in California for 25 years, kind of like Napoleon in Corsica, I think. They make something here they call Wisconsin cheese. Yuck.

Nobody mentioned What a Friend We Have In Cheeses yet?

Grab/Graham, you moved to the wrong side of the US. New England and New York have wonderful stinky cheeses. I remember when my family traveled, we'd make a point of going to a "country" store and buying a chunk cut off a huge wheel. Stuff smelled like socks you've worn for a month without washing, but it tasted great. Now there's Vermont Cheddar and New York Cheddar. I don't know why they kept "Cheddar" in the name. After all, even Cheddar cheese started as something else.

Double Gloucester...I love the stuff, but a tiny piece probably contains the cholesterol content of complete cow.

I lose the stuff in my refrigerator. Does that count as aging? I have new cheese and hairy cheese. I'm going to go shave myself a hunk right now...

Where in the States are you Grab? and for how long?

The nearest you'll find to a good Cheddar is a New York Extra Strong White Cheddar.

Choose a pack that looks as though it's been on the shelf for a while and you might get lucky. Occasionally the silly sods over here sell it off cheap when it gets old, so look in the bargain, specials or discount sections of several stores. I saw a couple of dozen packs like that once, going for half price. I bought the lot.

If you see cheese in plastic labeled "Cabot's" and called something like "Hunter's Cheddar," it's the best pre-packaged cheese I've ever tasted. Has a wide tartan stripe on it. (The package, not the cheese.)

Detroit. Maybe I just need to do a bit more asking around, or look in a Yellow Pages (is there a section heading for "Cheese shops"? or for "shops that sell foods not constructed by ICI"? or even for "shops that sell food that's reasonably natural and tasty"?) I thought about asking local ppl. Then I realised most of them are used to this plastic food. :-)

I can live with mild cheese though. What's harder to deal with is the lack of proper bread. Wholemeal bread simply doesn't seem to exist, it's all just varieties of white - and artificial cotton-wool white bread at that, not the fresh kind you'd get in France. The closest I've got is a small loaf of granary bread in Meijer (for non-Brits, that's brown non-wholemeal bread with grains) which was going to set me back $2.50 for about a 1lb loaf!

Any advice on places to start looking for _proper_ food? :-) Even the health-food shops don't seem too well-stocked...

And a short cheese horror story:

When I first moved up here to the boondocks, I was delighted to find a cheese and wine shop, advertising imports no less, so I toddled over to it to see if they had any Stilton. They did; I grabbed it up and went to the checkout, where I stood behind a couple who were insisting that the mold (mould on imports) be cut off the chunk they were buying. I was speechless (well, I was young then...). No, no, this is the horrible part: the clerk offered with great sincerety to cut the mold off my Stilton, too!

I knew I'd landed in the wastelands, then...

Unless you're lucky enough to find a good baker, then the nearest thing you'll get to bread is San Francisco Sourdough. We just make our own, then we can make it just how we like it.

LOL Sarah. We went into a store in Huntsville Alabama looking for some Romano. All they had was Made in USA. So I asked if they had any imported Romano. The girl said "This is Imported" I replied "It says here, Made in USA". She comes back with "Well we get it from Atlanta". I don't know how we managed to contain our laughter until we got outside the store.

A certain buffet-style restaurant near here had 2 prices posted on its menu, one for "Domestic beer" and one for "Imported beer." I ordered a locally made "craft" brew. I was surprised to see that the clerk rang up the "imported" price. I said, "Hey, that's not imported!" He replied, "Yeah, well, we classify it as imported because it's expensive."

Reminds me of the old saw about the Italian restaurant located somewhere outside of Italy. The owner was proud that they used only imported cheeses, "Much better than anything you'll get in Italy -- they use domestic cheese there!"

There are several web sites that contain a transcription of Monty Python's Cheese Shop Sketch. They must all derive from the same source because they all contain the same misspellings! It appears that the transcriber had no idea how to spell many of the varieties of cheese mentioned in the sketch, so he spelled them phonetically! LOL! Would you believe "Dorset Bluveny"? (see above)

Don't forget the chorus from by Greg Brown

Singing rooty toot toot for the moon
It's the biggest star I've ever seen
It's a pearl of wisdom, a slice of green cheese
And it's burnin' just like kerosene
Burnin' just like kerosene

I wrote the song 'Gloucester Cheese and Ale' but neither I nor anyone else sang it much. Questions: Is it the only song which is simply a recipe? Anyone remember the song? Anyone want it?

I'm surprised no one mentioned this song featuring the cheeses of Cheshire. Although it's mostly about a bear, and the cheeses seem to be thrown in as a afterthought, or maybe sponsored by the tourist board of Cheshire.http://www.mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=1323

"The cheeses of Cheshire are famed, but beware..."

You've probably seen this as a meme already, but just in case you missed it:

Sweet dreams are made of cheese
Who am I to dis a brie?
I cheddar the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for stilton
Some of them want to fondue you
Some of them want to be Roquefort Bleu....

Ahhhhhhhh so good guest! Glad we didnt get the rest of the meme as it would be a Fetta worse than death to have the whole song going round my Brien :-)

Cheers,
