What About Lunch?

Ever notice that in many popular songs you can replace the word "love" with "lunch" and it still works?

1. What about lunch? -- Heart
2. The lunch boat, soon will be making another run. The lunch boat promises something for everyone.
3. Making lunch in the afternoon with Cecilia in my dining room -- Simon and Garfunkel.
4. All you need is lunch -- John Lennon.
5. Lunch will keep us together.
6. The lunch shack is a little old place where, we can get together -- B-52s.

What others can you come up with?

You really have something here. My question is, how might you apply this insight into the study of early modern Spanish literature? You might, for example, edit a critical edition of the Conde Lucanor in which you substitute, say, the word "proverbio" with "lunch."

It also reminds me of when I and a couple of friends, in the wee hours, began discussing the now defunct group The Smiths. We at that time noticed an old tattered couch sitting on our friend's terrace. Naturally, this gave rise to at least thirty minutes of intellectualizing, during which we spouted out a number of Smith's song titles replacing key words with "couch." Thus, "Reel around the couch," "The couch is dead," etc.

How about "Lunch at home"? Gabe's favorite.

Hmmm. I will have to give this some serious thought.

How about, "I'm all out of lunch..." Air Supply or "You will always be my endless lunch"

Oh, Sweet Darlin' You get the best of my lunch....

By the way, thanks for pointing this out to me. I've had "lunch" on my brain ever since.
