Father never seemed to make enough
to feed his children steak;
But Mom turned out that chocolate cake,
chocolate made my childhood.

I love chocolate, I love you,
I hope you never prove untrue;
But I'll have chocolate if you do,
I can count on chocolate.

Chocolate is so action packed,
makes some children hyper-act;
Too much speed is what I lack,
grownups need more chocolate.

Dogs love chocolate, don't know why,
speeds their hearts up till they die;
Vet bill's gonna make you cry,
don't let dogs have chocolate.

I love chocolate, I love you,
I hope you never prove untrue;
But I'll have chocolate if you do,
I can count on chocolate.

How d'ya know that Easter's here?
Chocolate bunnies do appear;
If Christ had risen twice that year,
we could have more chocolate.

Some say growing old's the pits,
balding heads and sagging hips;
But chocolate doesn't give you zits,
I'll trade my youth for chocolate.

I love chocolate, I love you,
I hope you never prove untrue;
But I'll have chocolate if you do,
I can count on chocolate.

Careless love can break your heart,
God knows smoking isn't smart;
Too much beer can make you ... fat,
nothing's safe but chocolate.

If your husband's strength is spent,
his get-up-and-go has went;
Chocolate straightens what is bent,
feed your husband chocolate.

I love chocolate, I love you,
I hope you never prove untrue;
But I'll have chocolate if you do,
I can count on chocolate.

If your waistband's getting tight,
dieting is out of sight;
Try this curb for appetite,
precede each meal with chocolate.

Some of you may think this song
is short on meaning and too damn long;
I'm not going to say you're wrong,
let's go have some chocolate.

I love chocolate, I love you,
I hope you never prove untrue;
But I'll have chocolate if you do,
I can count on chocolate.

Recorded by Zeke Hoskin (Life Is Lethal, trk#4, 1992 cassette.)

The video above features a live performance by Zeke, accompanied by Flip Breskin, singing some of his original verses and, as has become the custom, makes up new ones as the audience throws out keywords or themes.

Zeke Hoskin sees the absurd side of everything and puts it all into witty songs that have been performed and recorded by Canadian bands from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland. He also plays the mandolin, Celtic harp, and alto clarinet.

Flip Breskin is a song-catcher extraordinaire, an extremely clean and lyrical fingerstyle guitarist, and a musical mover and shaker from away back. She was one of the founders of the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and has been playing and teaching guitar ever since. In concert, she plays the sweetest instrumentals ever found. The songs she sings are deep and thoughtful and never self-absorbed.

Together their effectiveness is enhanced by the contrast. A belly-laugher by Zeke sets you up to appreciate the depth of Flip's next offering, which in turn leaves you all the readier for a truly skewed Zeke number . . . When they aren't playing vocal ping pong with your state of mind, they sing together and play instrumental duets.
