Cheese On Toast


You murdered love with cheese on toast
A soft rock murder ballad. Handle love Caerphilly.

It ain’t a pizza without bread of some description
It ain’t a pizza if it doesn’t have cheese
And it ain’t a pizza, of course without tomato paste, puree or sauce
And two out of three may be good enough for Meatloaf
But it’s not good enough for me. Can’t you see?

Cheese on toast
What we’re looking at is cheese on toast
And there’s no way to disguise it
With candles on the table and soft rock on the radio
Cheese on toast
Welsh rabbit if you want to boast
Whichever way you slice it
Love’s gone to waste for want of tomato paste
This is such a cheesy evening, our romance is toast

It’s still a pizza if it doesn’t have anchovies
Still makes the grade without some pineapple chunks
But it’s not Italian cuisine without a thin red line between bread and cheese
And I don’t want to fight but slapping own-brand cheddar
On top of some Mother’s Pride just ain’t right

Cheese on toast
What you’re giving me is cheese on toast
And there’s no way you can hide it
With candles on the table and soft rock on the radio
Cheese on toast
Now love has given up the ghost
And there’s no way we can fight it
Love’s gone to waste for want of tomato paste
And I think I should be leaving…

There’s no way to express the pain I feel
Without some blazing guitar
And a gratuitous change of key

GUITAR SOLO

Cheese on toast
You murdered love with cheese on toast
No matter how much you deny it
The proof is on the table, stack the pots while I get my coat
Cheese on toast
Exhibit A is cheese on toast
And any court would try it
There’s no trace of paste. I rest my case
Find another lover to deceive with your cheese
Your cheese on toast
