The Lyrics

One more parody on this song. Inspired by a restaurant I went to once. Apparently, "pain" in French is bread, but I didn't know that at the time. Pronounce escargots as it looks.
Went to a French restaurant but I can't get what I want
I know the menu sounds real painful
They say that they've got some pain, I don't wanna eat no pain
I know I want food that's better

I wanna know, can you ever eat the pain?
I wanna know, have you ever ate the pain?
It sure sounds like it's painful

Yesterday in boiling pots, saw frog legs and escargots
I know, I don't wanna eat those snails
I don't eat frogs, no I don't, to me all this stuff is gross
I know, think I'll eat Italian

I wanna know, can you at least eat some pain?
If edible, it's sure got a real strange name,
It still sounds like it busts my tooth

Yeah, I wanna know, are they just yankin' my chain
Just wanna eat, better than stuff on a plane
Eatin' pain on a rainy night

I can see the pain rising in the oven (and smell it, too), just like at Chez Nous. (I guess that's how you spell it.)

I've seen a place with pain in it - I didn't realize that meant bread. Nicely done with a great OS.

Great Job. And I thought the Rain in Spain would make you Deranged with Pain.

A mite clever and inane, but stressed out at times. Or maybe I just don't remember how to sing it right these days. Who'll stop the pain?
