Sondheim's Lost Quiche Lyric?Evan Sung for The New York Times

David Tanis begins his latest column, on the joys of quiche done right, with a lyric from “The Ladies Who Lunch” (ladies and gentlemen, Elaine Stritch), from Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Company”: “Does anyone still wear a hat? I’ll drink to that.”

“In culinary terms,” he writes, “the question would be ‘Does anyone still make a quiche?’ It’s a harder word to rhyme.”

Harder, but not impossible. A reader identifying himself or herself as Pastry Chef, from Silver Spring, Md., composed this alternate verse and posted it as a comment here on the blog:

Does anyone still make a quiche?
Yes, it’s last century,
and its recipe may be dead to me.
But it’s a skill
that can fill
an extraordinary niche.

Are there any other lyricists out there? Have at it. Share your quiche lyrics for any tune.
