Coconut by Widespread Panic - "I like coconuts, you can break them open and they smell like ladies lying in the sun. And if I had my way, I'd give a coconut to everyone."

Ice Cream Man by Van Halen - "I got good lemonade, Dixie Cups, all flavors and Push-Ups too. I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passin' by. All my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy."

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Buttermilk Biscuits by Sir Mixalot. Once the song gets going, it's pretty much entirely about food... buttermilk biscuits in particular.

It was suggested that we avoid drinks, as there are so many drinking songs and songs about specific drinks (usually alcoholic), which would drown out the food songs.

I love words puns and food so this song is just perfect.

Cheese is you friend, Cheese will take care of you, Cheese will never betray you, But blue mold will kill me.
