More songs about buildings and food

Well, maybe not about buildings. Just the food, thanks.
Eggs and sausage, and a side of toast.
Coffee and a roll. Hash browns over easy,
Chilli in a bowl, with a burger and fries,
Oh what kind of pie?
There's a rendezvous with strangers
Round the coffee urn tonight...

All the gypsy hacks and the insomniacs
Now the paper's been read
Now the waitress said...[repeat]
Daily Pundit suggests songs songs about food and cooking as a good weekend thread. Good idea. "What gets your toes a-tappin' and your juices goin' in anticipation of a good meal? The songs can be about food outright or food as a metaphor. It can be in the title or in the body." I've kicked you off with Tom Waits 'Eggs and Sausage,' what else can you bring?
