The fun prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, provided by Di of Pensitivity101, is ‘Novelty Songs’. Over the years there have been many that fit this category. Some are really funny and others are just plain stupid. If you are a fan of the long-running TV show, Saturday Night Live, then you should remember Adam Sandler singing the Lunch Lady song and featuring the very funny, late Chris Farley as the Lunch Lady herself. Who can forget the chorus? “Sloppy Joe, Sloppy Joe, Slop, Sloppy Joe”
Adam Sandler wrote the song & lyrics and performed it for one of the show’s skits and it became an instant classic. The song was on Sandler’s Album: “They’re All Gonna Laugh At You!”
Enjoy it and have a great Sunday.
"This is a song..." "This is uhh, This is a new song..." "It's through the eyes of one of the greatest people alive, I feel..." "The Lunchlady" [Laughing] Woke up in the morning Put on my new plastic glove Served some reheated salisbury steak With a little slice of love Got no clue what the chicken pot pie is made of Just know everything's doing fine Down here in Lunchlady Land Well I wear this net on my head Cause my red hair is fallin' out I wear these brown orthopedic shoes Cause I got a bad case of the gout I know you want seconds on the corndogs But there's no reason to shout Everybody gets enough food Down here in Lunchlady Land Well yesterday's meatloaf is today's sloppy joes And my breath reeks of tuna And there's lots of black hairs coming out of my nose In Lunchlady Land your dreams come true Clouds made of carrots and peas Mountains built of shepherds pie And rivers made of macaroni and cheese But don't forget to return your trays And try to ignore my gum disease No student can escape the magic of Lunchlady Land Hoagies & grinders, hoagies & grinders Hoagies & grinders, hoagies & grinders Navy beans, navy beans, navy beans Hoagies & grinders, hoagies & grinders Navy beans, navy beans Meatloaf sandwich Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Well I dreamt one morning That I woke up to see All the pepperoni pizza Was a-looking at me It screamed, why do you burn me And serve me up cold I said I got the spatula Just do what you're told Then the liver & onions Started joining the fight And the chocolate pudding Pushed me with all its might And the chop suey slapped me And it kicked me in the head It's called revenge Lunchlady Said the garlic bread I said what did I do To make you all so mad They said you got flabby arms And your breath is bad Then the green beans said You better run and hide But then my friend sloppy joe came And joined my side He said if it wasn't for the Lunchlady The kids wouldn't eatcha You should be shakin' her hand And sayin' please to meet ya She gives you a purpose And she gives you a goal You should be kissin' her feet And kissin' her mole Now all the angry foods Just leave me alone And we all live together In a happy home Thanks to Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy joe [Spoken] Well me & sloppy joe got married We got six kids and we're doing' just fine Down in Lunchlady Land Written by Adam Sandler Courtesy of Genius Lyrics
Chris Farley was an absolute panic. Not just here, but in general. Felt so bad when he died.
I thought he was so funny. It was sad when he died. Do you remember his Matt Foley, The man in the van down by the river? Hilarious.
The real Matt Foley is a priest friend of his who showed up at Second City one night. Chris saw him in the audience and used his name for the motivational speaker, and it stuck. That skit with Matt showing up at to run an intervention at a family’s house is an utter classic, maybe the funniest one in the show’s history.
Never heard this before. What a hoot!
Thanks Di. I don’t think you get the Saturday Night Live show in the UK. ☺️💕
No we didn’t. But we don’t have a TV now and anything watched is usually via youtube.
So funny! I remember the song but not the video or skit on SNL. Of course Adam Sandler is a favorite whatever he does. 🙂
Thank you Barbara. Chris Farley was so funny as the Lunch Lady 🤣
Simply hilarious Christine, great choice.
Thanks Jim. It was very funny 🤣
That one hadn’t crossed the pond so I’d never seen it before. I love the way Adam Sandler is struggling to keep it together.
Thanks for stopping by Clive. Sandler did quite a few musical skits in SNL this one was hilarious because of Chris Farley. It brought back memories of school lunches – yuk! 🤣
Adam Sandler looks so young in this video!
I know right? I was trying to remember when it was. Early 2000s maybe?
Never seen this before Christine – I thought I was losing the plot when I saw a dancing slice of pizza…and then came dancing liver and onions. I love musical comedy.
It was all about school lunch ladies Mel and all the crappy food we were served back then 🤣. It was a good laugh!
