No Cheese On My Pizza

We all went down to Dominos.
Down by the middle schoool.
To get ourselves a pizza.
The thought just made me drool.

Teacher and the whole class
Were at the best place around,
But some baker making pizza
Burned the place to the ground.

No cheese on my pizza.
No toppings on my pie.
No cheese on my pizza.
(I'm gonna cry)

You know, he burned down the pizza place.
It burned with an awful sound.
Firemen were running in and out;
Mozzarella melting on the ground.

When it all was over
We had to find another place.
Lunch time was running out.
No pizza sauce on my face.

No cheese on my pizza.
No toppings on my pie.
No cheese on my pizza.
(I think I'm gonna die)

You know, we ended up at Unida;
My friend was working there.
He said we got there just in time
To get our pizza there.

Empty tables and some empty chairs.
We found ourselves a seat.
We ordered up our pizzas.
You know, we're ready to eat.

Now we have
Cheese on our pizza
And toppings on our pie.
Cheese on our pizza.
(We're on a pizza high!)

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
