A video of a 1990s-era Herman Cain signing an ode to pizza to the tune of John Lennon's "Imagine" now making the rounds on the Web is hotter than an extra-large double cheese. It was uncovered by the Omaha World-Herald in the course of doing a story on the presidential candidate's days as chief executive of the Godfather's Pizza chain. Cain lived in Omaha for most of the 1990s. As Slate first reported, the lyrics of the song go like this: 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 The World-Herald story has who knew Cain in those days crediting him with helping to stabilize the Godfather's chain.
