Bye Bye My Hostess Apple Pie

(Song to the tune – Bye Bye American Pie – by Don McLean)

A long long time ago
I can still remember how
The Ho-Hos used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my cup-cakes
and to eat my Devil-Dogs make no mistake
Then maybe I’d be happy for a while
But Dolly Madison was not my mother
If not for Twinkies there could be no other
Bad news came that was so wrong
They stopped making all the Ding-Dongs

I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about the business slide
But something touched me deep inside
The day the Twinkies died

Bye, bye my Hostess Apple Pie
They took my Twinkies and my Yodels and I started to cry
The union broke my Sno-Balls and they left them for dead
Wishin only for some Wonder Bread
Only for some Wonder Bread

I met a girl whose scent did linger
It reminded me of a Raspberry Zinger
But she just smiled and turned away
I went down to the corner store
Where I’d bought the Twinkies  years before
But the man there said the unions wouldn’t play
And in the streets the children screamed
The mothers cried, and the workers dreamed
But not a crumb cake was left me
The shelves were all but empty
And the three things I admire most-
Twinkies, Zingers and some Wonder toast
I guess I’ll bid them adios
The day the Twinkies died
And they were singing

Bye, bye my Hostess Apple Pie
They took my Twinkies and my Yodels and I started to cry
The union broke my Sno-Balls and they left them for dead
Wishin only for some Wonder Bread
Only for some Wonder Bread
