HOUSTON - Sometimes a good meal just makes you want to sing about it.

One McKinney man put his words to music and posted it on Facebook.

Fred Thomas, who calls himself the Christian Comedian on his Facebook page, posted a video of him singing, "Something About This Biscuit," while holding a honey butter chicken biscuit from Whataburger.

The video went viral. Thomas' video has been viewed more than 4.5 million times and shared more than 131,000 times as of Wednesday.

Here are his soulful lyrics:

"You know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
But for me, there's just one particular breakfast that just takes me away.
Something about this biscuit. Something about this biscuit.
It is the best biscuit I know. Oh how I love this biscuit.
Oh how I love this biscuit. It is the best biscuit I know.
This honey butter chicken biscuit. I can't explain.
Every time I pass Whataburger, I hear it call my name.
This honey butter chicken biscuit is so good to me, so good to me.
I'm just waiting on Whataburger to have buy one, get one free.
Something about this biscuit. Something about this biscuit.
Something about this biscuit. It is the best biscuit I know.
Oh how I love this biscuit. Oh how I love this biscuit.
It is the best biscuit I know.
Every time I get this biscuit, I get a little extra honey butter so it won't be dry.
Sometimes I catch myself with a tear coming out of my eye.
Whataburger, I don't care if you raise the price, I'll pay.
I don't think the honey butter biscuit should just be breakfast. You should sell 'em all day.
Something about this biscuit. Something about this biscuit."

In a Facebook Live Sunday night, Thomas thanked his fans for the shares and the love.

"This is just blowing my mind," Thomas said. "God is doing some great things right now."

Thomas said he thought his comedy career had come to an end, but he said his bishop told him, "Down time is prep time for prime time."

Thomas then went on to say, "If you haven't had a honey butter chicken biscuit, that thing will change your life. You hear me? And it's about to change mine!"
