about

There is no greater food town than New Orleans, hands down. It is a place where you really have to search hard to find a bad meal; in New Orleans that means it is just good and not great... and why I just cannot live there.

lyrics

THE FOODS TOO GOOD
© Bob Wright


I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good
the foods too good
the foods too good
I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good
somebody drag me home

had a bunch of gumbo
a little bit of shrimp and grits
at my current rate
I’ll have to take
some time to find
some clothes that fit

I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good
the foods too good
the foods too good
I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good
somebody drag me home

oh my oh my
just look at that pecan pie
if I had my way
I’d spend the day
eating everything
in sight

I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good
the foods too good
the foods too good
I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good
somebody drag me home

I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good

the foods too good
I don’t want to live here
cause the foods too good

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
