When I Use a Cup of Lard

 (to the song "When You Wish Upon a Star")

When I use a cup of lard
Gold browned biscuits can’t be far
Tasty things you’ll soon desire
I’ll bake for you

In your heart, a vein will scream
Circulation may careen
When you feast upon the lard
Turns blood to glue

Fate unkind
Swell treats we swallow up
That sad indulgence sup
Starts plaque installing

Served at times with jellied fruit
Fresh eggs, tender sausage too
When you feed upon the lard
With heart you’ll feud
