“Green Bean Casserole” (Tune: “Old Time Rock and Roll”; by Pr. Charles Henrickson)

BJS reader Dutch has requested a parody on potlucks. So, here ya go! The latest from the wag tailoring the doggerel . . .

GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE
Tune: “Old Time Rock and Roll”

Just put those old roasters in a line
It’s time for potluck and the pleasure’s mine
Today’s menus can’t fill the old hole
I like that green bean casserole

Don’t try to make me eat your tofu
You’ll sooner get to see me eatin’ dog food
I’ll start headin’ for the church basement door
I like that green bean casserole

Still like that green bean casserole
That kind of eatin’ just soothes the soul
I wanna know what’s on my plate and bowl
Like that green bean casserole

Don’t want shiitake or a mango
I’d rather eat some foods whose names I know
There’s only one sure way to get me to go
Start servin’ green bean casserole

Call me Midwestern, call my palate poor
Say I’m a Luth’ran, say I’m no connoisseur
Today’s menus can’t fill the old hole
I like that green bean casserole

Still like that green bean casserole
That kind of eatin’ just soothes the soul
I wanna know what’s on my plate and bowl
Like that green bean casserole . . .
