DID SOMEONE SAY PIE?

A Song For Each Occasion, by Rich Paschall

Let’s have another piece of pie

The American Master songwriter Irving Berlin seemed to have a song for every occasion. It is estimated that he wrote around 1250 songs, but there is no telling with the prolific Mr. Berlin. Some articles on the celebrated composer put the number much higher. Whatever the case may be, he gave us a tune for everything during his 60 plus years in show business.

When Marilyn posted an article with the title, “Let’s Have Another Piece Of Pie”, I immediately thought of the Berlin tune, Let’s Have Another Cup Of Coffee. It first appeared in the 1932 musical “Face The Music.” The Depression Era tune was meant to cheer people up.  The lyrics are positive despite the dark days the country faced.

Let’s have another cup of coffee

Just around the corner,
there’s a rainbow in the sky,
So let’s have another cup of coffee,
and let’s have another piece of pie.

Perhaps we can change the words “Mister Herbert Hoover,” who was President at the time, to President Joe Biden and use this as our pandemic song of hope.

Mister Herbert Hoover
Says that now’s the time to buy
So let’s have another cup o’ coffee
And let’s have another piece o’ pie!

  1. I love the background on the song! Thank you! I read some of that when I posted the song, but I knew most of it anyway because Mom was a product of the depression and she knew all the songs — and she sang ALL the time. Literally all the time. I can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing to herself or to all of us.
