Tried to look at the whole thread so sorry if you already caught these:

Van Morrison - Tupelo Honey

Leonard Cohen - Suzanne (tea and oranges. . .)

Prairie Home Companion - the biscuit song, and Ketchup! Ketchup!

I can see I’m going to lose hours wandering through these links. Thanks!!

I’m only at post 255, so I may have missed this, but how about "Corn bread, hogmaws and chitlins!
Awwww BEEP BEEP!

“Bang! Bang!”

The food words don’t show up in the lyrics, but in the stuff in between .
The Spanish version.

And from Popmatters
" What they came up with was the sound of a raucous block party in el barrio – the voices of kids chanting “Bang! Bang!” stood out in the mix, and the track was recorded with an overhead boom-operated mic to create a “live” ambiance. But the words announced that this was a mixed party. Besides “cuchifritos” and “lechón”, there was soul food on the menu – “cornbread, hog maw and chitterlings”.

That’s what I’m talking about!

My dad had this album “Wings and Things” . I remember the cover, but learned about the music much later.

“Wings and Things”.

How about Pigmeat Markham and “Here Comes the Judge”.
Pigmeat Markham- Here comes the judge!
I sometimes think of that as the first rap song.

Lyrics

Not much in the way of food, but…

" Order in this courtroom, order in this courtroom
Judge, your Honorship, Hi sir
Did I hear you say “Order in the Court?”
Yes I said order in the court

Well, I’ll take two cans of beer, please
He is the judge, he is the judge
Everybody knows that he is the judge
I had a chat with Ho Chi Min

With cheap rice wine and chased with gin
Won’t take long unless I miss my guess
I’ll have you out of this doggone mess
I sent a cable to Bob and Mac"

Since Arlo is often in our thoughts and over the airways on Thanksgiving thought I’d post a different tune:
The Motorcycle Song
“I don’t want a pickle
Just want to ride on my motorsickle”
