Everything About Herman Cain’s Take On John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ Is Pretty Wonderful

There’s a video of Republican presidential candidate and Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain floating around the internet today in which the affable Cain, the “9-9-9” plan-pushing candidate nicknamed “Cornbread” recently by some on the web, performs his own version of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” There’s been little to no context offered about the video that I’ve seen — I have no idea when this took place or what the occasion was — but it’s not really needed here as the video is simply amazing on its own. It just popped up unannounced on the web a couple of hours ago, as things tend to often do.

Further, the video has inspired one of my favorite Twitter hashtags in some time: #HermanCainPizzaJams. My personal offering: “My Heartburn Will Go ON.”

Not to be outdone, I imagine Rick Perry’s working on his own version of Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die” at this very moment. Meanwhile, when is someone going to take Cain, the GOP frontrunner in the latest polls, to task over the quite obvious elephant in the room: that Godfather’s pizza sucks really hard?

Anyway, full lyrics, via Buzzfeed, after the jump.

Imagine there’s no pizza
I couldn’t if I tried
Eating only tacos
Or Kentucky Fried
Imagine only burgers
It’s frightening and sad

You’re lucky you have pizza
To feed your kids for you
Only frosting or cookies
And no dishes you must do
Imagine eating pizza
Each and every day

You may say that it’s junk food
But to me it’s so much more
It gives my life its meaning
And it makes a lot of dough

Imagine mozzarella
Anchovies on the side
And maybe, pepperoni
Rounds out your pizza pie
Imagine getting pizza
Delivered to your door

You don’t have to give up now
On my skateboard I will go
I’ll be back in 30 minutes
I just bought Dominoes

All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
Give pizza a chance!
All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
You’ve got to, got to give pizza a chance!

Just think — this man could be our next president!
