The Lyrics

Long day at work, getting really hungry, the P.A. system playing some horrible disco tunes, then Sir Elton comes on, and I swear I heard "Cheesesteak" instead of "Freedom." Had to do this one. This is for all the guys at Pat's Steaks at South 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue in South Philly. A cheese-whiz/mushroom/wit -- that's a steak with cheese-whiz and mushrooms, wit' onions (if you don't want onions, say "wit'out") -- and a Pepsi, best seven bucks you ever spent. And cheaper than the food at the ballpark, a great warmup for a Phillies game.
I used to be a veggie guy, you know. It didn't seem so right
to fry up something that was flesh and bone.
I used to be a heart-healthy-eating one, but the times have changed.
I gotta push some cal'ries past my gums.

'Cause I gotta eat a Philadelphia cheesesteak.
From the day that I was born I need the snack.
Philadelphia cheesesteak with a Nehi can in hand
gave me peace of mind that PETA never had.

Oh, Philadelphia cheesesteak, come to me, I love ya!
Onions slide through the mouth of the one left behind!
Mushrooms on, piled high. Pile 'em high, won't ya pile 'em hi-i-i-igh!
Philadelphia cheesesteak, I lo-o-ove you! Yes I do!

If you choose to, you can live your life depressed
salads there in the city.
Some others choose cookin' like they got down-home.
I liked eatin' easy, no cholesterol ties
'til the guys at Pat's, they zapped me right between the eyes.

'Cause I gotta eat this Philadelphia cheesesteak.
Gotta head on down to 9th and Passyunk.
Philadelphia cheesesteak with a Nehi can in hand.
Don't ever let nobody tell ya the food is junk.

Oh, Philadelphia cheesesteak, come to me, I love ya!
Onions slide through the mouth of the one left behind!
Mushrooms on, piled high. Pile 'em high, won't ya pile 'em hi-i-i-igh!
Philadelphia cheesesteak, I lo-o-ove you! Yes I do!

Oh, Philadelphia cheesesteak, come to me, I love ya!
Onions slide through the mouth of the one left behind!
Mushrooms on, piled high. Pile 'em high, won't ya pile 'em hi-i-i-igh!
Philadelphia cheesesteak, I lo-o-ove you!
You know I lo-o-ove you!
You know I lo-o-ove you!
Yes I do!
Philadelphia cheesesteak! Don't you know that I lo-o-ove you! Yes I do!
Philadelphia cheesesteak! Don't you know that I lo-o-ove you! Yes I do!
(repeat 'til fade)
