That's a Steve Goodman song.

Can be found on "No Big Surprise" and other Steve Goodman albums.

"Do you see that old dog, he's out in the street, he's got a big smile on his face because they let him eat meat!"

CHICKEN CORDON BLEUS
(Paula Ballan / Steve Goodman / Tony Mandel)
As recorded by Steve Goodman on "Somebody Else's Troubles" (1973)

When I first met you, baby, you fed me on chicken and wine.
It was steak and potatoes and lobster and, babe, I sure felt fine;
But now all you give me is seaweed and alfalfa sprouts
And sunflower seeds and I got my doubts.
Babe, you left me here with the Chicken Cordon Bleus.

My stomach's so empty and all I got is food for thought,
And I been sittin' here thinkin' 'bout the twenty pounds of groceries we bought.
We bought ten pounds of brown rice and five more of beans,
And five pounds of granola and you know what that means:
I'm just a regular fella with the Chicken Cordon Bleus.

I'm starved for affection and, babe, I can't take no more.
You know, this stuff is so weird that the cockroaches moved next door.
Babe, can you see that old dog? He's out in the street.
He's got a big smile on his face 'cause they let him meat,
And, babe, I got the lemon and the Chicken Cordon Bleus

(spoken)

Babe, I'm goin' down to the bakery and I'm gonna find me a jellyroll
And some cannoli.
Some French pastry.
A chocolate eclair don't sound too bad.
How 'bout some lasagna?
You know fat is where it's at.
My shadow disappeared....

Gee, George - I'm surprised this one hadn't been posted before. It's a Goodman classic.
