song for a butcher#1

Hi guys,
I need a song for a butcher to sing in an upcoming play-anything considered but would like something joyful.

He's a cliched butcher- large, hearty, joyful and I'd like him to sing a similar song. Even an easy to learn opera song could be good. He's the kinda character who sings for fun whilst he works but has an excellent voice.

Could be a duet as his apprentice might sing with him. Even a non opera song would be good, as he ca always sing it opera style.

Thanks!

Does it have to concern food or meat?
Cuz one of the few songs that popped into my head was I Love to Cry at Weddings from Sweet Charity
You're reminding me of people you hear at the movies asking questions every ten seconds, "Who is that? Why is that guy walking down the street? Who's that lady coming up to him? Uh-oh, why did that car go by? Why is it so dark in this theater?" - FindingNamo on strummergirl

"If artists were machines, then I'm just a different kind of machine...I'd probably be a toaster. Actually, I'd be a toaster oven because they're more versatile. And I like making grilled cheese" -Regina Spektor

"That's, like, twelve shows! ...Or seven." -Crazy SA Fangirl

"They say that just being relaxed is the most important thing [in acting]. I take that to another level, I think kinda like yawning and...like being partially asleep onstage is also good, but whatever." - Sherie Rene Scott

"Art" from a man of no importance starts out with a butcher.

LePetite, I was just about to post that. You beat me to it.
He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

Les Poissons.

It's about fish, but it's fun and violent nonetheless.
