1.
Corned beef on pumpernickel or sometimes barbecued
  Pastrami, salami on light rye. I'm In It For the Food
   
  Roast chicken on Friday night or like Chinese, cashewed
  Matzo balls in chicken soup. I'm In It For the Food
 
chorus Hassidic or Orthodox? Conservative? Reform?
  I've been a gastronomic Jew since the day that I was born
  I've been a gastronomic Jew since the day that I was born
 
2.
Mama made stuffed cabbage. With tomatoes it was stewed
  Put raisins in a kugel. I'm In It For the Food
 
chorus  
 
3.
Lox on toasted bagel. With cream cheese it is glued
  Slice a Bermuda onion. I'm In It For the Food
   
  No pork or shrimp or lobster. Those things are tabooed
  I don't drink milk any more. I'm In It For the Food
   
chorus  
   
coda
I've been a gastronomic Jew since the day that I was born
 

"Someone suggested that I write a song about Jewish food for Rocky Mountain Jewgrass. I came up with the line I'm In It For the Food and started looking for true rhymes for food. My father described himself as a 'gastronomic Jew.'" — San
