SLS: How Do You Like Your Eggs?

Scrambled eggs and mushrooms

Jim’s prompt today was a bit of a challenge, even though I’m the one who suggested it! I thought there were songs about going to dinner, but I couldn’t find any. I didn’t want to use the obvious “Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch” by Weird Al, funny as it is. I figured one or more of y’all would take that one. So I turned to breakfast ~ the most important meal of the day, amirite? I found this really cute clip from a movie musical I never heard of… Rich, Young and Pretty, 1951. The song is “How D’Ya Like Your Eggs in the Morning,” and it was written by Sammy Cahn and Nicholas Brodszky. The movie introduces Vic Damone, and he sings the Breakfast song along with Jane Powell.

The following lyric text sample is from the Dean Martin/Helen O’Connell version of the song, but the video clip is from the movie. Enjoy!

(H) How do you like your eggs in the morning
(D) I like mine with a kiss
(H) Boiled or fried
(D) I’m satisfied as long as I get my kiss
(H) How do you like your toast in the morning
(H) I like mine with a hug
(H) Dark or light
(D) the world’s all right as long as I get my hug

(D) I’ve got to have my love in the morning
(H) Or the rest of my day is positively mayhem
(D) I’m a regular monster
(H) How do you like your eggs in the morning
(D) I like mine with a kiss
(H) Up or down
(D) I’ll never frown eggs can be almost bliss
(D) Just as long as I get my kiss

  8. Huh. There are plenty of songs featuring bars, but the only one featuring a place to eat that I can think of is Szsanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”.
