The Lyrics

Smorgasbord is one of very few originally Swedish words in the English language, with that in mind I have written two songs that ended up being about bistros, this one is the hors d'oeuvre, tomorrow I'll bring you the main course (for more about that, read the bottom comment).

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here.
If you serve at a Chef School bistro
Be sure to use no sour ordinaire
If you wait at a Chef School bistro
You're gonna note the cookfights everywhere

And those who come to Chef School bistros
Suppertime they'll want sommeliers
Ain't no beets at Chef School bistros
Ain't no pizza from flour 'less it's pear

Ale's an aberration
Scotch's a botch sedation
Sheeple buy potions
Those are just toxications
For askew exploitation
Sheeple buy potions
Sheeple buy potions

And you who cook at Chef School bistros
Be sure to send out swedes with blonde au pairs
If you run a Chef School bistro
Wine and dine's a gastric thoroughfare

If you're at a Chef School bistro
It's a crime to not be tipsy there
© Peter Andersson. (Tomorrow we'll be looking at the disgusting preprandial habits some people have at smorgasbords, especially young men at some on campus restaurants, touching stuff with their dirty fingers, copping a feel at everything, from melons to pies, before putting it back down or dropping it in the juice bowl - so stay tuned for "If you're groping at Strip School bistro").

I had a few and made some stew with you. Honestly, I saw 'Bistro' first and thought you were doing something in the H2G2 vein. Pleasant surprise and very good wordplay here. Especially enjoyed 'sommeliers/'less it's pear/blonde au pair/thoroughfare'

Actually, "if you're doing your math in bistros" was the H2G2 bistromatics idea I started with before it all degenerated into a simple food parody. :-)
