OK, this requires a little story. In the late 1960's, I lived in Amsterdam. A song which was somewhat obscure in the United States (although it did make the top 100) was a major hit in the Netherlands: "Baby Won't You Leave Me Alone" by The Web. So much so that a parodist named De Zware Jongens also had a big hit there with what would now be considered politically incorrect parody called  "De Chinees Doet Veel Meer Met Vlees" (which translates to "The Chinese do very well with meat", although the dishes in the song are Indonesian, but that's quibbling). I am surprised that I remember enough Dutch to be able to understand most of the lyrics, but it IS illustrated, as well...

        Off the top of my head, I can think of three food-related songs:
         
        Red Foley's "Hominy Grits"
         
        The Hoosier Hot-Shot's version of "Yes, We Have No Bananas"
         
        and Tommy Duncan's "Who Drank My Beer While I Was in the Rear"

          Regarding the 1923 hit song, "Yes, We Got No Bananas", here's a lesser known "blues" tune from later that same year that bemoaned the popularity of the original.

                  Oh the Murphy's gave a party just about a week ago
                  Everything was plentiful, the Murphy's they're not slow
                  They treated us like gentlemen, we tried to act the same
                  But only for what happened, well it was an awful shame
                   
                  When Mrs. Murphy dished the chowder out
                  She fainted on the spot
                  She found a pair of overalls
                  In the bottom of the pot
                  Tim Nolan he got rippin' mad
                  His eyes were bulgin' out
                  He jumped up on the PI-A-NO
                  And loudly he did shout
                   
                  Oh, who threw the overalls in Mrs Murphy's chowder
                  Nobody spoke, so he shouted all the louder
                  It's an Irish trick that's true
                  I can lick the mick that threw
                  The overalls in Mrs Murphy's chowder
                   
                  So we dragged the pants from out the soup and laid them on the floor
                  Each man swore upon his breast he'd ne'er seen them before
                  They were plastered up with mortar and were worn out at the knee
                  They'd had their many ups and downs as we could plainly see
                   
                  When Mrs Murphy she came to she began to cry and pout
                  She'd had them in the wash that day and forgot to take them out
                  Tim Nolan he excused himself for what he'd said that night
                  So we put music to the words and sang with all our might
                   
                  Oh, who threw the overalls in Mrs Murphy's chowder
                  Nobody spoke so we shouted all the louder
                  It's an Irish trick that's true
                  I can lick the mick that threw
                  The overalls in Mrs Murphy's chowder

                    Here we come on the run
                    With a burger on a bun
                    And a dab of coleslaw on the side,
                    Oh your taste we will tickle
                    With a great dill pickle
                    And all of our potatoes are french fried, fried, fried,
                    Our burgers can't be beat,
                    'Cause we grind our own meat,
                    Grind, grind, grind, grind, grind,
                    When you drive away,
                    You'll really hear us say,
                    We bid you bye, bye, bye, bye, bye,
                    We bid you bye, bye, bye, bye, bye!
                    And as your on your way,
                    A tip upon our tray
                    We hope to find, find, find, find, find
                    We hope to find, find, find, find, find.

                                          On of my favorite camp songs from childhood:
                                           
                                          On top of spaghetti,
                                          All covered with cheese,
                                          I lost my poor meatball,
                                          When somebody sneezed.
                                           
                                          It rolled off the table,
                                          And on to the floor,
                                          And then my poor meatball,
                                          Rolled out of the door.
                                           
                                          It rolled in the garden,
                                          And under a bush,
                                          And then my poor meatball,
                                          Was nothing but mush.
                                           
                                          The mush was as tasty
                                          As tasty could be,
                                          And then the next summer,
                                          It grew into a tree.
                                           
                                          The tree was all covered,
                                          All covered with moss,
                                          And on it grew meatballs,
                                          And tomato sauce.
                                           
                                          So if you eat spaghetti,
                                          All covered with cheese,
                                          Hold on to your meatball,
                                          Whenever you sneeze.

                                                    A great version of a Robert Johnson song ( he was from Clarksdale MS).  Also done by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but the original version is still the best.

                                                      I love Clapton, but this version IS better.
