I'm dancing on the White House lawn
Sipping tea by the Taj Mahal at dawn
Hanging round the gardens of Babylon

Minnie Mouse has got it all sewn up
She gets more fan mail than the pope
She takes the Mickey out of all my phobias
Like signing cheques to ward off double pneumonia

Life is a minestrone
Served up with Parmesan cheese
Death is a cold lasagna
Suspended in deep freeze

I'm leaning on the tower of Pisa
Had an eyeful of the tower in France
I'm hanging round the gardens of Madison

The seat of learning and the flush of success
Relieves a constipated mind
I'm like a gourmet in a skid row diner
A fitting menu for a dilettante

Life is a minestrone
Served up with Parmesan cheese
Death is a cold lasagna
Suspended in deep freeze

Love is a fire of flaming brandy
Upon a crepe Suzette
Let's get this romance cooking, honey
But let us not forget

Life is a minestrone
Served up with Parmesan cheese
Death is a cold lasagna
Suspended in deep freeze

Life is a minestrone
Served up with Parmesan cheese
Death is a cold lasagna
Suspended in deep freeze

Love is a fire of flaming brandy
Upon a crepe Suzette
Let's get this romance cooking, honey
But let us not forget

Life is a minestrone
Served up with Parmesan cheese
Death is a cold lasagna
Suspended in deep freeze

Life is a minestrone
Served up with Parmesan cheese
Death is a cold lasagna
Suspended in deep freeze

Mine, mine, mine, minestrone
Mine, mine, mine, minestrone
Mine, mine, mine, minestrone
