The Lyrics

I sent a recording of this song to Dr. Demento, but he never played it. I guess if I want my 15 minutes of fame, I'll have to get it here... (This may well be the only song every written to refer to Scottish meat pies - outside of Scotland, anyway)
It's five o'clock on a Saturday
A couple of friends happened by
And we feel like something good to eat
So I pick up the phone and I dial

I say, "Would you deliver a pizza here
A deep dish, with plenty of crust
With tomatoes and cheese, and no anchovies, please
And sausage and mushrooms and such?"

Chorus: Bring us a meal, you're the Pizza Man
Bring us a meal tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a pizza now
And you've got us wanting a bite

Now, John from next door is a friend of mine
And he thinks Chinese food's real neat
He likes burger and fries, he likes Scottish meat pies
But there's something that he'd rather eat

He says, "I do believe this is killing me
Seems like too much is never enough
Well, I'm sure that I'll gain twenty pounds or so
If I don't quit eating this stuff!"

Now some folks, they like it Chicago style
And some folks, they like it New York
Some will eat from the pan, some will eat with their hands
Some will eat with a knife and a fork

And a pizza is great for togetherness
Cause you can't eat all that on your own
When you're sharing a pizza with everyone
It's much better than eating alone

Chorus:

It's a pretty good meal for a football game
And for parties it just can't be beat
It's a winner for dinner, for breakfast or lunch
Yes, it's everyone's favorite treat

And the Pizza Man will deliver it
Anywhere, any time of the year
Forty minutes, no more, and he'll come to your door
Ring the bell, and say "Pizza Man here!"

Chorus:

This was plain, with no topping whatsoever. But it certainly was cheesy.
