"Quiche Lorraine" as written by Ricky Wilson, Cynthia Wilson, Kate Pierson, Fred Schneider and Keith Strickland....
The skies are charcoal gray
It's a dreary downtown day
At the end of my forty-foot leash
Is my little friend
Quiche La Poodle
Is her name
And having a good time on a crummy day is our game
Quiche Lorraine

Quiche, Quiche Lorraine
Quiche, Quiche Lorraine

Everyday I take her out, yeah
She runs around and she shouts out and barks, yeah
'Cause she's a good doggie
She's a sweet, sweet, sweet puppy
And I know she'll stick by me, yeah

Oh no, here comes a Great Dane (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
Drivin' down the lane (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
Quiche, Quiche, Quiche come back here (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
Don't leave me (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
I'll go insane (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
I'll go insane (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)

How do you like that?
Has anybody seen
A dog dyed dark green?
About two inches tall
With a strawberry blonde fall
Sunglasses and a bonnet
And designer jeans with appliques on it?
The dog that brought me so much joy
Left me wallowing in pain
Quiche Lorraine
I'll show her!
Do you see the key in my hand?
I'm gonna throw it in the lake
Yea, you've been so rotten to me
You take the cake
I'm just gonna lock the door to your kennel
And just you try and come back to me
Yeah, you'll see (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
You mangy mutt (Quiche, Quiche Lorraine)
(Quiche Quiche Lorraine) I'm talking about Quiche!
Quiche Lorraine

    General CommentDid she run away because she objected to Fred's canine fashion sense?

    My InterpretationIt's about (duh!) a fellow who's in The Sorrows because his dog ran away

    My InterpretationI'm thinking another "line" of interpretation is this song is about animal abuse and the animal gets free of it's abusive owner who now feels bad about the treatment after the dog runs away.

    The first two verses cover how the dog and her owner's relationship is perceived initially from the outside. The dog and her owner are running around town, supposedly having fun together, like you'd expect from a good pet/pet owner relationship, Then one day the dog gets loose of it's owner after finding herself a "mate", and the dog is lost forever, probably to a new owner - and the dog's real owner is sad.

    The second two verses cover what is REALLY going on.- the poor dog was dyed dark green, dressed up in (presumably uncomfortable for a dog) clothing, The owner calls her a mutt, throws the key to her kennel in the lake, and abandons her in her crate - exposing the owner's strange issues that lead to this kind of treatment....for the dog just being what she is, a dog.

    My InterpretationI always took it as a metaphor. Quiche is the narrator's girlfriend that ran off with someone else (possibly a big Scandinavian man). Wouldn't be the first time an errant lover was described as a dog.

    General CommentOne time before performing this song, Fred commented it was "about a relationship that went to the dogs. In other words, Quiche Lorraine was a woman that loved the singer and then did him wrong. On another level, at the time this was released, there was also a book out called "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche." The title may be a reference to that.
