The Lyrics

There's one food
That's pure heav'n
I eat it
At work at sev'n
Crisp bagel
Rich cream cheese
And I'll have some capers, please
Salmon's brined
And roasted good
Has veggies like it should
Haven't tried it? Well you should know

How does the lox taste?
De-e-e-e-e-licous
De-e-e-e-e-licous
De-e-e-e-e-licous
How's the lox taste?
Wow wow wow wow wow wow!
Wow wow wow wow wow wow!
Wow wow wow wow wow wow!
How's the lox taste?
I want, I want, I want more
I want, I want, I want more
I want, I want, I want more
How's the lox taste?
Yum yum yum yum yum yum-yum yum
Yum yum yum yum yum yum-yum yum
Yum yum yum yum yum yum-yum yum
How's the lox taste?

Nova lox truly rocks
Cold-smoked fish is such a dish
Cured gravlax's (a) flavor dream
And the rævesovs's so mean*
It's orange-red, the salmon flesh,
How the chef made it just right!
And when the clock says it's lunchtime,
I'll get my lo-ox at Einstei-ei-ei-ei-eins'
stei-ei-ei-ei-eins'
stei-ei-ei-ei-eins'
Go to Noah's or Einstei-ei-ei-ei-eins'
stei-ei-ei-ei-eins'
stei-ei-ei-ei-eins'

How does the lox taste?
Wow wow wow wow wow wow!
Wow wow wow wow wow wow!
Wow wow wow wow wow wow!
How's the lox taste?
I'm gonna, I'm gonna get one right now
I'm gonna, I'm gonna get one right now
I'm gonna, I'm gonna get one right now
How's the lox taste?
Creamy and salty
Overall savory
Creamy and salty
How's the lox taste?
Goooooooooooood
Goooooooooooood
How does the lox taste?

No secret I love lox
A de-li-ca-cy
On a deli display
I know it's waiting
Why's it so great?
I really don't know
It's quite a flavor symphony
Try it today!

Lox, a glorious sandwich,
First made by the Jews**
Lox is that great!
Now all of you know
To lunch now, to lunch now,
To lunch I'll go!
*Rævesovs is a Danish gravlax sauce. Ironically, its literal translation is "fox sauce." Fox sauce = lox sauce! **Lox comes from the Yiddish word for salmon. Lox, bagels, and cream cheese are a big part of American Jewish cuisine

Shockingly I'm not a fan of the original song. Or lox. (Loxes? Loxi?) You make it sound really good though; nice job.

Thank you! I think it's loxes, but loxi sounds good too!
