Happy Truffle Day!

Sorry I didn’t post a song yesterday.  Did you miss me?  I didn’t think so!  Anyway, I took the day off, which I’ll make up later on.

Today, May 2, is National Truffle Day.  As you no doubt are aware, there are two different kinds of truffles—the rare fungi and a rich, creamy chocolate candy.  Today we celebrate the candy.

Our song for today is Savoy Truffle by The Beatles.  The song first appeared on the Beatles’ White Album.  The words are a bit  confusing, but it’s a great song, but very foodie.  Enjoy!

Looks good and sounds good, too!

Creme tangerine and montelimat
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart
A coffee dessert, yes, you know it’s good news
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

Cool cherry cream and a nice apple tart
I feel your taste all the time we’re apart
Coconut fudge really blows down those blues
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

You might not feel it now
But when the pain cuts through
You’re going to know and how
The sweat is going to fill your head
When it becomes too much
You’re going to shout aloud

But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle.

You know that what you eat you are
But what is sweet now, turns so sour
We all know Ob-La-Di-Bla-Da
But can you show me, where you are?

A coffee dessert–yes you know its good news
But you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle

Yes you’ll have to have them all pulled out
After the Savoy truffle
