His Cheeseburger (also known as the Cheeseburger Song) is the eighth Silly Song that debuted in the VeggieTales episode "Madame Blueberry".

Due to the "The Song of the Cebú" incident, Archibald cancels "Silly Songs with Larry" and replaces it with "Love Songs with Mr. Lunt." Archibald thinks that Mr. Lunt is going to sing about his childhood in Connecticut, but he instead sings about the intense desire between a cheeseburger and a hungry Jerry Gourd who arrives at the Burger Bell drive-through too late. Additionally, at the end, he adds that Mr. Lunt says that he grew up in New Jersey.

Lyrics

Mr. Lunt: He said to her, "I'd like a cheeseburger...

And I might like a milkshake as well..."

She said to him, "I can't give you either."

And he said, "Isn't this Burger Bell?"

She said, "Yes it is but we're closed now, but we open tomorrow at ten."

He said, "I am extremely hungry, but I guess I can wait until then."

'Cause you're his cheeseburger!

His yummy cheeseburger!

He'll wait for you.

Yeah! He'll wait for you.

Oh, you are his cheeseburger!

His tasty cheeseburger.

He'll wait for you.

Oh, he will wait for you.

He stayed at the drive-thru till sunrise.

He may have dozed off once or twice.

When he spotted a billboard for Denny's

Bacon and eggs for half price!

How could he resist such an offer?

He really needed something to munch.

Cheeseburger, please do not get angry. (Don't get angry!)

He'll eat and be back here for lunch!

Cause you're his cheeseburger! (Cheeseburger!)

His precious cheeseburger! (Cheeseburger!)

Be back for you! He'll be back for you!

Won't be so long cheeseburger! (Cheeseburger!)

Oh lovely cheeseburger! (Cheeseburger!)

Be back for you!

Oh, he'll be back for you.

Cause he loves you cheeseburger with all his heart! (Cheeseburger, cheeseburger!)

And there ain't nothin' gonna tear you two apart! (Cheeseburger, cheeseburger!)

And if the world suddenly ran out of cheese, (Cheeseburger, cheeseburger!)

He would get down on his hands and knees, (Cheeseburger, cheeseburger!)

To see if someone accidentally dropped some cheese in the dirt. (Cheese in the dirt!)

And he would wash it off for you! (Wash it!)

Wipe it off for you! (Wipe it!)

(Clean it!) Clean that dirty cheese off just for you... (For you!)

You are his cheeseburger.

Behind the Scenes

The origins of the song came about when Mike Nawrocki originally had the idea of a love song called "Drive-Thru Girl", which was about Larry having a crush on a girl working at a drive-thru window. Mike felt that it was inappropriate to put Larry in that position, so he tried using Mr. Lunt instead, but felt that the idea was creepy. Eventually, Mike decided it would be funnier if it was a love song about cheeseburgers, and then put Jerry in the scenario with Mr. Lunt just singing as a narrator. He and Kurt got inspiration from listening to albums by Meat Loaf and Air Supply. Kurt Heinecke stated in The End of Silliness? commentary that Mike's original verse for the song had accidentally copied the melody of a song from a Spanish soap opera Mike used to watch. It was changed after Mike's wife, Lisa, reminded him. A new melody was written by Kurt as a replacement for the final song.

    • "She said [...] 'And I think that that moose has gout.'"
