Full-Moon Fare

Updated on February 3, 2016

By: Wayne Brown

(Writer's Note: Ms. Lalesu asked for this one to celebrate a junk-food full-moon night. What could I do but paint it for her and share it with you! WB)



It was a hot July night on the full of the moon

Baby and I went to eat at the Old Silver Spoon

The specials were listed on the sidewalk strip

Twinkies, tortellini, cheesecake and chips



I got a case of hungry on that full-moon night

The cupboard was bare, no food was in sight

So I jumped into my car and off to the store I rips

For Twinkies, tortellini, cheesecake, and chips




Baby and I were in the country to see the full moon

When I opened our basket, why I started to swoon

Inside it packed with some sweet tea to sip

There was Twinkies, tortellini, cheesecake n’ chips



Baby and me under a full-moon, in love we did fall

I promised her diamonds, money, cradle and all

After the wedding, for the banquet they will flip

Eyeing those Twinkie, tortellini, cheesecake n’ chips



The full-moon brings romance; a young’un or more

They grow up so fast crawlin’ round on that floor

It’s all about nourishment so for you here’s a tip

Feed ‘em Twinkies, tortellini, cheesecake n’ chips



Now me and Baby’s been hitched a full-moon or two

Been married longer than you, you, and yes, you

She no longer cooks and I don't give her no bad lip

Eatin’ my Twinkies, tortellini, cheesecake n’ chips



Under the full moon, we celebrate our 10th anniversary

We’ll dance til the early dawn; moonbeams in the tree

And when our hunger rises from our light-footed trips

We’ll dine on Twinkies, tortellini, cheesecake n’ chips
