The Lyrics

A long, long time ago, I still remember,
Mama's cooking, warm and tender,
And I knew if I had my chance,
I'd make a pie with chicken and ham!

But September made me shiver,
With every slice, it delivered,
Bad news on the doorstep,
I couldn't take one more soup or salad prep.

So bye, bye to the chicken and ham pie,
Drove my taste buds to the bakery, but the bakery was dry,
Them good old flavors of chicken and ham,
Singing this'll be the dish that I'll enjoy, this'll be the dish that I'll enjoy.

Did you bake the pies we used to love,
And do you have faith in God above,
If this pie makes you quiver, how the taste does deliver,
Can you teach me how to savor real slow?

Well, I know you're in love with chicken and ham,
'Cause I saw you ordering seconds, man,
You both kicked off your shoes,
Man, those flavors were good news!

So bye, bye to the chicken and ham pie,
Drove my taste buds to the bakery, but the bakery was dry,
Them good old flavors of chicken and ham,
Singing this'll be the dish that I'll enjoy, this'll be the dish that I'll enjoy.

Now for ten years, we've been on our own,
And pie crusts crackle like a rolling stone,
But that's not how it used to be,
When the chicken and ham brought delight, you see.

Oh, and while the chef was looking down,
The pies they stole without a sound,
The dish that once brought joy and glee,
Now it's lost like a melody.

And there I stood, a hungry chap,
With taste buds that had taken a nap,
I smelled the scent of fresh-baked bread,
And I knew that pie would soon be dead.

The pie we used to love to eat,
Now just a memory, bittersweet,
And while the pies were going dry,
Them good old flavors said goodbye.

So bye, bye to the chicken and ham pie,
Drove my taste buds to the bakery, but the bakery was dry,
Them good old flavors of chicken and ham,
Singing this'll be the dish that I'll enjoy, this'll be the dish that I'll enjoy.

I met a chef who sang the blues,
And I asked her for some happy news,
But she just smiled and turned away,
I went down to the bakery on that tasty day!

And in the ovens, I saw pies,
Delicious, savory, and super-sized,
I knew the chicken and ham pie,
Would return like a clear blue sky!
