This is part of the complete Exercises in Song cycle being released on this site.

"Gastronomical" is a bonus exercise, not to be found in Raymond Queneau's original Exercices de Style nor in the translations.

To be sung to the tune of "Show Me The Way To Go Home". More information here.

Find me a recipe, quick,
For warm soup and beds of fresh spring veg.
A marinade of alcohol has left me tart,
Like a crushed-up lemon wedge.

At Sangster's, Holbeck Ghyll
And The Crown: I ate my fill.
But the crumbs I've left aren't hard to digest:
Home cooking can't be beat, still.
