No thank you,
No thank you,
No thank you, no!

I don’t mean to be rude,
But I’m not in the mood for food.
It’s lovely, it’s tempting, fit for a king, I know!
Your cooking’s a work of art,
But when you’re with me, why be so a la carte?

Madame, I love your crepes suzette,
I think your crepes suzette is wonderful!
But, for the moment, let’s forget
All about your crepes suzette!

Madam, I Love Your Crepes Suzette - Du Barry Was A Lady, Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, 1943
Madame, I love your cheese souffle,
I think your cheese souffle is marvellous!
But when you look at me that way,
How can I eat cheese souffle?

I regret to say I’m unable
To partake of your table;
You’d be more delish’,
Account of you’re my favourite dish!

Madame, I don’t want your bite,
It’s not because I’ve lost my appetite!
I want what you’ve got plenty of,
Madame, I came here for love!
