    Two Triple Cheese, Side Order Of Fries...by Commander Cody...circa early 1970's...
     
    This was an early one featuring Bill Kirchen, and was also a very early music video filmed at the Grand Lake Drive In (next to the opulant Grand Lake Theater, next to Lake Merrit in downtown Oakland, CA)...I think the video was released by Blind Pig Records...(???)
     
    Also released on an lp (you know, those flat pieces of black plastic with grooves that went around and around)

    This is more beverage related but it is hilarious.  At the end you will see a lot of familiar faces.

    "The Night The Chinese Restaurant Burned Down" by Sylvia Tyson comes to mind but it's not really about the food.

    "Weird Al" Yankovic has a whole compilation CD of his food song parodies:
     
    1. Fat (parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad")

    2. Lasagna (parody of Ritchie Valens' "La Bamba")

    3. Addicted to Spuds (parody of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love)

    4. I Love Rocky Road (parody of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock 'N' Roll")

    5. Spam (parody of REM's "Stand")

    6. Eat It (parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat It")

    7. The White Stuff (Parody of New Kids on the Block's "The Right Stuff")

    8. My Bologna (Parody of the Knack's "My Sharona")

    9. Taco Grande (Parody of Gerardo's "Rico Suave")

    10. The Rye or the Kaiser (Parody of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger")
     
    All classic Weird Al.
     
    And who can forget Butterbeans and Susie's classic "I Wanna Hot Dog For My Roll."  Never got tired of that one on Dr. Demento.

    Homegrown Tomatoes, Guy Clark

    Here ya go sk bob; Luv this song!

    Ain't nothin' in the world that I like better
    Than bacon & lettuce & homegrown tomatoes
    Up in the mornin' out in the garden

    Get you a ripe one don't get a hard one
    Plant `em in the spring eat `em in the summer
    All winter with out `em's a culinary bummer
    I forget all about the sweatin' & diggin'
    Everytime I go out & pick me a big one

    Homegrown tomatoes homegrown tomatoes
    What'd life be without homegrown tomatoes
    Only two things that money can't buy
    That's true love & homegrown tomatoes

    You can go out to eat & that's for sure
    But it's nothin' a homegrown tomato won't cure
    Put `em in a salad, put `em in a stew
    You can make your very own tomato juice
    Eat `em with eggs, eat `em with gravy
    Eat `em with beans, pinto or navy
    Put `em on the site put `em in the middle
    Put a homegrown tomato on a hotcake griddle

    If I's to change this life I lead
    I'd be Johnny Tomato Seed
    `Cause I know what this country needs
    Homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see
    When I die don't bury me
    In a box in a cemetary
    Out in the garden would be much better
    I could be pushin' up homegrown tomatoes

    Seafood Mama is the orginal name for what band? .25 cents to the first to post the correct response.
     
    And yes the King of the food songs is Cheeseburger In Paradise

    My favorite is still Slim Gaillard's "Yep-Roc Heresay", which, by all accounts, is about food:

    Don't know what it is, but it probably goes well with an "Atomic Cocktail" (b-side.)
