Tofu Spaghetti

Get Flash to see this player.

Using Separation Blues as a starting point, I wrote this in the early 80s when my university students asked me to make a speech for the club on the topic of my choice. I chose Tofu Spaghetti as a metaphor for trying things that are outside the norm (for most Japanese in any case). Since I thought the speech would go over better if I had a song to go with it, I made this one up. I also came up witj a recipe. Some students, believing I actually had cooked the dish, went and made it and brought it to a class party. I guess this is actually an example of collaboration of a sort.

Oh TS, I eat it every night
Folks may say you're crazy and you know they're right
But if this world is normal, I don't wanna be
I'd rather be living with the fishies in the sea
Oh TS is the way for me

Now futsu spaghetti don't taste too bad
but you eat it every night and I think you've had enough
But TS is the way for me, it makes life less boring and fun to be
Oh TS is the way for me
Now when your friends come over, they want some supper
What are you gonna do?
Are you gonna take a chance and put in the beans
Are you gonna do what you always do?
But if you add the beans, they say you're crazy
They say good-bye forever to you
Well don't you a-worry cause x is my friend
And she likes Tofu!
