I'm dancing on the White House lawn
Hanging round the gardens of Babylon
She gets more fan mail than the Pope
Like signing cheques to ward off double pneumonia
Life is a minestrone
Death is a cold Lasagne

Had an eyeful of the tower in France

And the flush of success
I'm like a gourmet in a skid row diner

Served up with parmesan cheese
Suspended in deep freeze
Upon a crepe suzette
But let us not forget
Life is a minestrone
Death is a cold Lasagne
