Simple Cheese

cvirtue brought out the parmesan tonight, which our kids refer to as "shaker cheese", and tossed out the idea of a song to the tune of "Simple Gifts". So I came up with this:

'Tis the cheese that is grated,
'Tis the cheese that's a treat,
'Tis the cheese we pour on what we want to eat.
And when we pour it out on the food just right,
'Twill be on the pasta of love and delight.

When grated parmesan is served,
We all shall get as much as we deserve.
To pour, pour will be our delight,
'Till by pouring, pouring, our food tastes right.

(Edited: "ground parmesan" instead of "parmesan cheese"; not quite accurate, but puts the stress on the right syllable.)

(Edited again: "grated parmesan".)

Oh, that is most excellent.

My I suggest that instead of "When true ground parmesan is served," that it might fit even better to sing, "When shredded parmesan is served," or "When grated parmesan is served."

Oooh -- delightful bit of filk. I may have to put that one into my campfire songbook: I'm immensely fond of the tune...
