Herman Cain, author of the 9-9-9 plan and GOP presidential hopeful, can now add Internet sensation to his resume after the Omaha World-Herald posted his 1991 Rendition of "Imagine (There's No Pizza)," a leftover from his Godfather CEO days. Godfather's Pizza Ad/Feat

An article on Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's time running Godfather's Pizza, reported by the Omaha World-Herald, included a video of Cain performing a pizza-themed version of John Lennon's Imagine at a 1991 Omaha Press Club event. The Daily Beast posted a shortened clip of the performance, and the video went viral.

Slate, the Web magazine, first reported the lyrics of the song:

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

Cain, 65, is also a former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board in Kansas City, Mo., and former chief executive and lobbyist for the National Restaurant Association. He is an accomplished gospel singer who broke into song last weekend while on a bus tour of Tennessee.
