The Lyrics

I must admit I am a big fan of cheese. Unfortunately, certain cheeses have intensive, pungent, rancid and offensive odours. Gorgonzola, Italian blue cheese, has one of the worst. Fortunately, it is also one of the tastiest cheeses available.
Gorgonzola, why do you smell so offensive?
Your odour is so intensive and so pungent now
Oh, you're soft cheese
I know that cheeses of blue mould
get quite stinky when old, they
smell bit strong somehow

Don't you spread that cheese on sandwich, boy
it'll numb your taste-buds certainly
You know that thin, slice is always best choice to do
Now it seems to me, some fine things
are acquired tastes, you sure are
But you only taste good to those who love you

Gorgonzola, when you age you'll get hotter
Your taste and your odour will fill up my brain
And neighbours, oh neighbours, they're getting alarmed now
They think that I've somehow have blown up the drain

Don't your taste warm me in the winter time?
You're soft and white when you're in your prime
It's easy to tell when you're ripe from when you're raw
you're gaining taste and your smell grow strong
If you don't believe, just open the fridge's door -

Gorgonzola, your smell is me not offensive
it's only intensive and you're yum-yummy now
Oh, you're rarebit, and you taste is like heaven
it's up to eleven when I'll get a chow!

What a "cheesy" title- 555!!! I prefer Munster not b/c it is German but due to taste; as Ke$ha put it in "Blow"- "lactose edible gold"!!! Otherwise, I buy variations of Swiss, love Pepperjack, Provolone, etc... and that weird hunger for goat cheese every now and then?!?

Don't know this cheese..sounds like it's something like Limburger.

Another 555 for this parody :) But I won't give a score to the Gorgonzola, I don't think. I don't even like the smell of Parmesan, so I reckon Gorgonzola would be a bridge too far for me. I'll stick with me Cheddars and Wensleydales, ta very much!

Loved the 'blown up the drain' line. Someday when I win the lottery and 'can really afford all that cheese' (old US lottery commercial) I will have to try some.

Great song match. I'm a gorgonzola fan too, also Roquefort and Danish blue. It's an acquired taste for sure, but like most such, worth acquiring. It took me several decades.

I would have kept the line about fine things laid on your table, the words seem a gift for the subject, but that's just me. It's funny, but I think your syl counts are a little off here and there and a couple of awkward constructions, e.g. 'They think that I've somehow have' so I'm the bastard who didn't give you 555s if you want to know. I appreciate English is a second language so kudos for that.

Good cheese is supposed to smell like poo. One of my favorites is Feta.

The subject matter stinks, but not the parody, great work Susanna ! I note the 2Eagle is unlikely to be scoring any jobs as a cheese advertiser in the near future...

Wow! Seems my little cheesy parody has gotten favourable comments. Seems also there are other cheese lovers onboard :-)

I just discovered a wonderfully stinky blue cheddar. Nobody else in my family likes it so MORE CHEESE FOR ME!
