"Makin' Bacon" is a song by David Haydn-Jones first created at Jus In Bello Italy 2017 as an improvisational piece. It was expanded, fully produced and released for distribution in time for Jus In Bello Italy 2018, marking the anniversary of his first appearance at JIB.

Profits from song sales go to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America.

Project Description

I know what you’re thinking. Davey, what on earth is this? You wrote and recorded a single about “Makin’ Bacon”? I know… kinda weird BUT… long story short: I did an off-the-cuff, improv jingle last year at Jus In Bello #Jib8 Supernatural convention. It became an ear-worm. Then a meme. And then it just wouldn’t die. By YOU folks!! So I was dared and challenged to record it. I did. I went totally overboard ;) I wrote a Country / Rock single based on my chorus. Hopefully, in a way you will laugh, sing along and just plain ROCK OUT TO!! It’s Ketch-y. I promise. David Haydn-Jones, Instagram post, May 21 2018


Another morning

I’m still in mourning

An empty space where she once lived

But tiny footsteps

Dance down the stairwell

Reminders of the joy she gives

I feel so sad

Yet seldom am I lonely

With those little grins to greet the day

Two mouths to feed

My precious one-and-onlies

Gotta keep’em smiling with all I say

So I’m singing…

Makin’ bacon

Makin’ makin’ bacon

Makin’ bacon

Makin’ makin’ bacon


I’m makin’ bacon

Daddy’s makin’ bacon

Cooking up some love to feed my family

I sip my coffee

Wave to the school bus

Avoid the mess, avoid my pain

I roll some papers

Crush those leafy crystals

Breathe deep


My sinful lover Mary-Jane

I get so high

But never am I happy

A double shift still looms today

I gotta work

But, man, do I feel crappy

Gotta keep on grinding and still get paid

So I’m…

Makin’ bacon

Gotta make the bacon

Makin’ bacon

Makin’ makin’ bacon


I’m sick of fakin’

Gotta quit this wake and bakin’

Gotta make that bacon

Gotta feed my family

I think I’m ready

To turn some pages

Rewrite this tale… The end’s not done

Be with a partner

Cuz it’s been ages

I’m craving LOVE and some big boy fun

I could swipe right

Or try to digitize her

But robo-dating ain’t for me

I’ll stick with bars, dance halls, picnics, parties

Old-school socializing sets me free

And then…

Rooms melt

Eyes meet

Souls merge

The clouds beneath your feet

A new friend

A TRUE lover

And in an instant we’re rolling in the covers singing…


So here’s the lesson

Of what I’ve told you

Just keep the faith

And trust it’s not too long

When life is darkest

We must keep our light on

With humor, grace, and sometimes

Singing songs…

Sing it with me NOW!!

Makin’ bacon

Makin’ makin’ bacon

Makin’ bacon

Makin’ makin’ bacon


(Repeat 4x)
