Lunch was made for me and you.

q. shenaynay, beatrice & fa

It's late January. You're bored and you know it. So play a silly little game with us.

Think of a song lyric with the word LOVE in it
and substitute the word LUNCH.

If this doesn't strike you funny, well then you just need to get simple. This goofy exercise has proven capacity to increase your simplitude to a more desirable level the longer you keep at it. Good for when you've done way too much school for one day, one semester... one lifetime.

Note: Cannibalistic or gross entries will get hit with the oooh gross button. Which means we'll delete them. Okay, enough of the rules.

Some examples:

Funny, but when you're near me, I'm in the mood for lunch...

Lunch is a many splendored thing.

I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me lunch.

Lunch will be our mystery.

Can't get enough of this everyday lunch.

Lunch is all that I can give to you,
Lunch is more than just a game for two...
Lunch was made for me and you.

I never knew the art of making lunch.

More lunch
I can hear out hearts cryin'
More lunch
You know it's all that we need

One good lunch erases all the bitter tears on an empty dance hall... all those lonely nights when she never called, it just don't seem so tragic after all, with one good lunch...

At last, my lunch has come along, and life is like a song! Oh yeah!

And then there are Literary Lunch Quotes:

Is lunch a fancy or a feeling?

Lunch means never having to say you're sorry.

It is better to have lunched and lost and to have never lunched at all.

Okay, now it's your turn.
C'mon, baby, show us some lunch.

I don't know much, but I know I lunch you..and that may be all I need to know.

...you said some things you didn't know I could hear, and the words "I lunch you" never sounded so sincere...

She's so kissable, hug-able, lunch-able, ubelievable...

And on day 67 she said I lunch you to me, oh what I feeling! What I wonderful emotion!

wow..there are too many... I'll stop now...

It's very clear
Our lunch is here to stay.
Not for a year
But ever and a day.

A little bit of me
And a whole lotta you
Add a dash of starlight
And a dozen roses too
Then let it rise
For a hundred years or two
And that's the recipe for making.. lunch.

(kind of anticlimactic, imho)

"I can't give you anything but lunch, Baby."

"Hello, young lunchers wherever you are..."

Or I'll never fall in lunch."

Famous Lunch Quotes:

"Spread lunch everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give lunch to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier."
-Mother Theresa

Can you feel the lunch tonight...

or go for the great quotes by Shakespeare...
Lunch comforteth like sunshine after rain.

If music be the food of lunch, play on.

Lunch sought is good, but given unsought is better. (mmm how true)

ok, I could keep going but I will end with a favorite...

Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I lunch.

Some people want to fill the world
With silly Lunch songs

What's wrong with that,
I'd like to know?

Heidi said...

Lunch, lunch will keep us together.....

Baby, if I think about you
I think about luuuuunch
Darlin if I live without you
I live without luuuuuuunch
Feel like makin'
Feel like makin' lunch......

I'm all out of lunch
I'm so lost without you........

Making lunch out of nothing at all.......

Say you'll share with me one lunch, one lifetime...

We never said our lunch was evergreen
Or as unchanging as the sea...

My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water'd shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these
Because my lunch is come to me.

Lunch is in the air
In the rising of the sun
Lunch is in the air
When the day is nearly done


You've lost that lunchin' feeling
Oh, that lunchin' feeling
You've lost that lunchin' feeling
Now it's gone, gone, gone
We had a lunch
A lunch you don't find every day
So don't...don't...don't let it slip away


You know we always had each other baby
I guess that wasn't enough
Oh, but here in my heart
I give you the best of my lunch

I couldn't let this go without a Jackson Browne song or two.

Come on baby, don't say maybe
I've got to know if your sweet lunch is gonna save me
We may lose and we may win
But we will never be here again
Open up I'm climbin' in to take it easy!


I want to know what became of the changes
We waited for lunch to bring
Were they only the fitful dreams
Of some greater awakening . . .
. . . Caught between the longing for lunch
And the struggle for the legal tender
(The Pretender)

It's your lunch
It just does something to me
It sends a shock right through me
I can't get enough
And if you wonder about the spell I'm under
Oh it's your lunch.

You're starin' at a burnt steak
You bite the bullet and you clean your plate
And then you go on and on about how great it was
That's not a lie, that's lunch.

Lunch a little stronger, dig a little deeper

That's how your lunch makes me feel inside

Lunch is not lunch that alters when it alteration finds

The Magic Of Lunch

Lunch is like magic
And it always will be.
For lunch still remains
Life's sweet mystery!!
Lunch works in ways
That are wondrous and strange
And there's nothing in life
That lunch cannot change!!
Lunch can transform
The most commonplace
Into beauty and splendor
And sweetness and grace.
Lunch is unselfish,
Understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart
And not with its mind!!
Lunch is the answer
That everyone seeks...
Lunch is the language,
That every heart speaks.
Lunch can't be bought,
It is priceless and free,
Lunch, like pure magic,
Is life's sweet mystery!!

- Helen Steiner Rice (but made far more interesting by Lady Why)

"What the world needs now is lunch, sweet lunch..."

Katie said...

Kiss today good-bye
And point me t'ward tomorrow
We did what we had to do
And I can't forget
What I did for lunch
What I did for lu-u-unch!

Lunch is never gone!
As we travel on
Lunch we will remember.

(I had to come back and check in again. This is kinda fun.)

"Better my life should be ended by their hate than that hated life should be prolonged to live without your lunch." (Romeo)

"Criminal, when one lunches, to prolong overmuch that paltry thrust and parry!" (Cyrano)

"Have you ever thrown a stone into the water and watched the circles about it spread?....So it is with our Lunch. It is as if....from that central point the circle of our Lunch widens until it embraces all men." [I think that would be especially true if your tuna sandwich has been in a locker all morning.]

As I who can't help but be
Ruled by my antiquity
Not unique just distantly in lunch
You know I can't help but be
Part of my own philosophy
Not unique just distantly in lunch

My thanks to Mr. Buffett for borrowing Distantly in Love. I mean LUNCH!

Heeheee - this was fun.

Lunch, lunch will keep us together
Think of me babe whenever
Some sweet talkin' girl comes along, singin' a song
Don't mess around, you just gotta be strong

Just stop, 'cause I really lunch you
Stop, I been thinkin' of you
Look in my heart and let lunch keep us together

How about Tainted Lunch?

This tainted lunch you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted lunch
Tainted lunch

ok, this weekend in church at one point we sung a couple of songs that talk about love, and I almost started laughing because this blog came to mind.

Oh--I didn't realize how Anonymouse I was being on all those posts. Tainted Lunch, Mr. Fixit, Ponytails, the Apprentice, and the CM quotes are from me--Mama Squirrel.
