Herman Cain Sings Imagine There's No Pizza

October 18, 2011

Former Godfather's Pizza CEO and current GOP presidential contender Herman Cain probably wishes The Omaha World-Herald hadn't uncovered this video from a 1991 Omaha Press Club performance. Cain spoofs John Lennon's legendary "Imagine" with these lyrics. 

Imagine there's no pizza
I couldn't if I tried
Eating only tacos
Or Kentucky Fried
Imagine only burgers
It's frightening and sad

You're lucky you have pizza
To feed for kids for you
Only frosting or cookies
And no dishes you must do
Imagine eating pizza
Each and every day

You may say that it's junk food
But to me it's so much more
It gives my life its meaning
And it makes a lot of dough

Imagine mozzarella
Anchovies on the side
And maybe, pepperoni
Rounds out your pizza pie
Imagine getting pizza
Delivered to your door

You don't have to give up now
On my skateboard I will go
I'll be back in 30 minutes
I just bought Dominoes

All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
Give pizza a chance!
All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
You've got to, got to give pizza a chance!

The song prompted a Twitter meme, #HermanCainPizzaJams. Talking Points Memo rounds up the best.
