Pizza Sickness

Time to try something new. Don’t ask me how this idea came about – it’s a long story. But if you don’t like it, you can blame my best friend Chris. If you like it, though, you can give me all the credit.

Don’t worry, Chris, this will be great.

Have you guys heard the song Sleeping Sickness by City & Colour? If you haven’t, you should.

For my next trick, I am going to take the lyrics to that song and tweak them to turn the narrative of the song into something completely different. As you can tell from the title of this post, it’s going to revolve around pizza. Obviously.

So, here it is, Pizza Sickness.

I awoke, only to find my stomach empty
And through the night, so it seems I’m not eating
And now my meals, are nothing like the TV commercials
And I’m craving pizza, I think I’m craving pizza

And I’m afraid
To open the fridge because it haunts me
Fresh food is a big uncertainty
Maybe I’ll never find the food to eat
Which would completely fill me
And now I’m craving pizza, I think I’m craving pizza

Someone come and, someone come and bring me pizza
Maybe I’ll eat a caesar salad too
But now it’s like the delivery drivers are taking sides
With all the worries that occupy the front of my stomach
Could it be this pizza will suffice?

I’ve become
A simple customer of the local pizza place
And like the sea
My stomach is churning inside of me
Hunger fills my stomach and soul, if only I could swallow a pizza whole
Oh, how I’m craving pizza
I think I’m craving pizza

Someone come and, someone come and bring me pizza
Maybe I’ll eat a caesar salad too
But now it’s like the delivery drivers are taking sides
With all the worries that occupy the front of my stomach
Could it be this pizza will suffice?

Ohh will it suffice?

Someone come and, someone come and bring me pizza
Someone come and, someone come and bring me pizza
Someone come and, someone come and bring me pizza
Could it be this pizza will suffice?

Let me know if I should do this again. I take song requests.

About Paul

This is the part where I'm supposed to write something interesting about myself and you'll read it and think, "That's not that interesting." So let's not do that and just think about pizza instead, on the count of three. One, two, three. Donuts. Now, wasn't that interesting?

  8. Chef Paulo should take a shot at this. Feed him a song and see what comes out the other end. And speaking of Quinn’s suggestion…we will need audio. The world awaits.
