Herman Cain sings Lennon classic "Imagine There's No Pizza"

In this performance from 1991, presidential candidate Herman Cain sings (splendidly) a version of Imagine in which the lyrics have been changed to be about pizza. [via Gawker]


  1. I think we know where he got the 9-9-9 plan from – get a pizza for $9.99!  I’d like a singing president, so I think I’ll vote for this guy!!!!!

  2. Somehow an American  president that made a fortune making shit pizza is… oddly appropriate.
    See, it’s like a whole bunch of different toppings (people) thrown togeather that should make a delicious end product but really just sucks. 

  3. I think it was Hemingway who said to F. Scott, “Those singing Republicans, they’re different from you and me.”

  4. Well if nobody else is gonna come forward and say they just threw up a little in their mouths hearing that, I guess I’ll have to be the first.

  5. Those are some pretty gangsters’ molls.

    Here are the lyrics:

    Imagine there’s no pizza
    I couldn’t if I tried
    Eating only tacos
    Or Kentucky Fried
    Imagine only burgers
    It’s frightening and sad

    You’re lucky you have pizza
    To feed for kids for you
    Only frosting or cookies
    And no dishes you must do
    Imagine eating pizza
    Each and every day

    You may say that it’s junk food
    But to me it’s so much more
    It gives my life its meaning
    And it makes a lot of dough

    Imagine mozzarella
    Anchovies on the side
    And maybe, pepperoni
    Rounds out your pizza pie
    Imagine getting pizza
    Delivered to your door

    You don’t have to give up now
    On my skateboard I will go
    I’ll be back in 30 minutes
    I just bought Dominoes

    All I am saying
    Is give pizza a chance
    All I am saying
    Give pizza a chance!
    All I am saying
    Is give pizza a chance

  6. I actually like Cain. I like people who view business as something you create, grow, and nurture. I think he’s quite right that the difference between him and Romney is that Romney is a ‘Wall Street CEO’….

    …and it’s just almost possible that he DOES understand that being pro-business and pro-corporation  are so far from being the same thing they’re almost opposites.

    What I want to know is, what’s he in this for? Is he trying for a VP spot? Is he going to turn Paul/Perot at the last moment and be in the race to shift it towards a worthy goal? What’s the angle?

    BTW, when asked for people he admired, he named JOHN BOLTON and HENRY KISSINGER.

  7. Some one told me he has a paid theme song that is sort of Shaft-esque. Has anyone heard this or know where it’s at, or does my friend need to stop watching Frontline stoned.
