My Favorite Food Has a Name in America

My favorite food has a name in America Found in a recipe book I never knew that my food had a title Guess I should buy one and look Don't get me wrong when I mention tostadas Most people have one or two But when you speak in the language of meatballs Only a restaurant will do Could it be true that the foods in America Differ from those we hold dear If you require a like-tasting taco Visit the restaurants down here If you are raised in a family home And you want food with a name Your loving mother will look at you funny And cook your meal the same We love the foods in the homes of our mothers More than your burgers and fries If you should ask us for Buffalo Chicken You may deserve a surprise.
