Say Cheese

Scott Stieber & Don Myers

Give us real cheese, real cheese, Or we’ll give you the biz
No American, no Velveeta, no Cheese Whiz
That’s real cheese, real cheese, it is what it is
No American, no Velveeta, no Cheese Whiz

Say cheese and welcome to Wisconsin
Say cheese up north hey where life is great
Say cheese and welcome to Wisconsin
When you’re in Wisconsin, you’re in a dairy state

Old farm houses and dairy barns
Cows grazing in their fields
Take a whiff of our dairy air
Drink milk at every meal

Say cheese and welcome to Wisconsin
Say cheese gonna get your picture took
Say cheese and welcome to Wisconsin
Gonna put your picture in my picture book

All the buildings are made of brick
For every Gouda girl and boy
We’re somewhere east of Edam
And north of Illinois

Say cheese and welcome you flat landers
Say cheese Door County and Wisconsin Dells
Say cheese and welcome you Cub fans
Where we’re wondering if you’re buying what we have to sell

We skim the cream right off the top
Always looking for a better whey
If this has occurred to you
you might clear your throat and say

Give us real cheese, real cheese, Or we’ll give you the biz
No American, no Velveeta, no Cheese Whiz
That’s real cheese, real cheese, it is what it is
No American, no Velveeta, no Cheese Whiz

If you know where your bread is buttered
If you yearn what we churn
Consider the weight of the words I’ve uddered
Like the cows you will return

Say cheese and welcome to Wisconsin
Say cheese up north hey where life is great
Say cheese and welcome to Wisconsin
When you’re in Wisconsin, you’re in a dairy state

Give us real cheese, real cheese, Or we’ll give you the biz
No American, no Velveeta, no Cheese Whiz
That’s real cheese, real cheese, it is what it is
No American, no Velveeta, no Cheese Whiz
