The Lyrics

Stephen King, the horror writer, on Twitter: "Until I was in my 30s, I thought that Roy Orbison song 'Only the Lonely' was 'Holy Baloney.' Ears not exactly too good." It's been a long time since a parody idea came rushing in to me and basically wrote itself. Then again, it's also been a long time since I've eaten a bologna sandwich -- and that's no phoney baloney.
Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, wah.
Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.
Holy baloney.
Holy baloney.

Holy baloney.
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)
That's what I will eat tonight.
(Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, wah.)
Holy baloney.
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)
Makes my stomach feel right.
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)

There goes my baby.
Takes out the bread.
Lays down the pork meat
on mustard she's spread.

And holy baloney
is wha-a-at
I got.
Holy baloney.

Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, wah.
Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.
Holy baloney.
Holy baloney.

Holy baloney.
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)
It's not kosher, that is true.
(Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, wah.)
Holy baloney.
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)
But the Pope, he likes it too!
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)

Maybe tomorrow
a new sandwich.
Corned beef? Pastrami?
No, I can't switch

Yoooooooooooooooooooooou've gotta make...
that baloney lunch-break.
Holy baloney!
(Yum, yum, yum, yummy, ooh wah.)
No, I don't know if Pope Francis actually likes baloney. But I had to work the "holy" part in somehow, and he is, at least ethnically, Italian, and baloney did originate in the Italian city of Bologna.

Found this gem "sandwiched" in between "Green Eggs and Ham" and "Lydia With Chlamydia". Considering the mysterious ingredients of baloney, how would one tell the real from the "phoney". Queen Elizabeth took the Pope a bottle of Scotch when she visited the Vatican. Ethnically, I would suspect Francis might prefer his baloney with a nice Chianti. Won't speculate about the fava beans. Back in the 1960's there was a pop version of "I've Got Rhythm" on the radio. Whenever my brother and I heard the intro, we thought they were singing "Tits, tits, tits...". Stephen King's hearing loss is AIR's gain.
