At first I worked at Whole Foods, selling lots of cheese
Wanted to be a famous writer like Mister Tony
Now I spend oh, so many nights just writing entries for my blog
Yes, it's a blog
Although I call my blog a Bog

And so I write what Tony says
Turn it into a blog entry and put it out in cyberspace
But I'm still crazy about cheese, like Cheddar, Stilton and Gruyere
I love Parmagiano Reggiano, Swiss and Camembert

I'm the Cheese Boy
And Tony's annoyed
But I'll keep writing what he says long as I'm in the Post's employ
Those paychecks help me buy the kinds of cheese on which I dine
Feta, I crumble
Gouda, I pair with some wine

Oh yes, and I
I will transcribe
Oh, as long as Tony's talking I know I'll have something to write
And while I'm snacking on some brie
I'll practice my stenography
I will transcribe
I will transcribe

I recorded this one before I heard Elliot's other Transcribe jingle but I found these lyrics too funny not to sing? The original song here is kind of cheesy anyway so it was a good fit! Thanks, Elliot! Oh and thanks for the kind words, JF!

Very nice. I am learning about different cheeses while being entertained. Kj can do any genre well.

The two songs about one thing happened to me with "I'll Be Back" and "Get Back." The second one is clearly better but the first one had already aired!

And yes, Brad, I love that Feta line, too. If I can pat myself on the back just a bit, I like the way I strategically used words from the original song in a few places: "At first I," "Oh, so many nights." I almost rewrote the second verse to mimic the "space/face" rhyme (something about words coming "out of Tony's face").

You know, it's funny. I've had this thing lately where I write one version of an idea, and then after it's been recorded, I get an even better version. It happened with Randy Wittman (although Torie kind of invited that one on-air, if you were listening), and then again with this. When I send it to Nigel, I'm going suggest he play it together with "Gotta Transcribe" as the "Cheeseboy Disco Suite"

Nice. Really doubling down on the Cheeseboy angle, eh?
