O Pizza! My Pizza!
O Pizza! my Pizza! our fearful cooking's done,
The crust has weathered every turn, the sauce and cheese are one,
The table's near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While following the waiter's steps, the pie on high he's holding;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the floor my Pizza lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
If I Can Stop One Pizza from Burning
If I can stop one pizza from burning,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can stop one life the waiting,
On a parlor line with hunger pains,
Or help one sliding mushroom
Unto the pie again,
I shall not live in vain.
