Name one great asset to your cupboard. One you can put in a pizza, in almost every salad, you can make omelets out of it, can put over a toast and could be a side dish to almost every meal you can think of.

Well, I looked into the lyrics of “For Crying Out Loud”, by Meat Loaf (who I hadn’t heard about, ever). This are the lyrics, and as almost all Steinman’s-Meat Loaf songs, they are quite long. Just read the first few verses if you don’t feel like reading:
