The Lyrics

Little ditty bout
Black and Cayenne
Two peppers you use when your
food is quite bland

Black is on the table;
use a whole jar
Cayenne more pungent and a
little goes far

Put em on chili dogs
though I prefer cheese
Cayenne's sittin' on the shelf
It's mostly for recipes

Blackie say: --well, nothing;
it's inanimate you see
Look through those cookbooks that is
where they will be

And then you say
Oh yeah, spice goes on
Just grab you a mill
And grind until you're done

Oh yeah, spice goes on
Just grab you a mill
And grind until you're done

Black is put back because my
breakfast is donuts
I'll use him later; I make the
best baked beans

Well you know cayenne so
acrimonious and zippy
I only use it when I can't
taste nothin'

And then you say
Oh yeah, spice goes on
Just grab you a mill
And grind until you're done

Whether in a wok
or a bowl
Whether patty melt or a
casserole
You'll want to mix in
as strong as you can
Make an omelet real soon in a
simmering pan

Little ditty bout
Black and Cayenne
Two peppers that are good to have
In the kitchen

Claude, I just love your quirky humor!

Obviously, somebody likes to eat at Applebee's. Everything there is "blackened" or "Cajun" or "Tex-Mex." Yuuuuck. Burned things are generally not good, unless I'm burning someone with a parody. Could be worse, though: "Don't eat there at Subway, Jared..."

Thanks everyone for the comments. And LL, to answer your question, I can't remember...I just sneezed and there it was, I guess.

Glad I found this. Wildly creative and original. (Too bad there's not a category for that.)

Very nice. Gotta say when I hear Jack and Diane, this is the one I go with.....and the fact I remember this one and not the original. Great job
