The Lyrics

This is the night I meet your family
I'm ready to face it, although, I am nervous
And I know just what you expect of me
when we are at dinner, eat all of your mom's food
(Like her famous pot roast, and her hot, spicy gumbo)
To let it go to waste is the worst mistake I could do
(say "that is good pot roast" and say "that is real good gumbo")

I will need some Tums
I feel burning here
I am such a liar
saying "yum!" through tears
I am getting sick
feel like I could puke
But I'll keep eating
Honey, just for you

You can see your mom's smothering me
my plate, she keeps piling, and more soup in my bowl
And I can see your dad smirking at me
daring me to barf, or scream "that's it, I'm through!"
(have some more of that roast, and have a bit more of that gumbo)
To let it go to waste is the worst mistake I could do
(have another hot roll, and more green bean casserole)
But can't keep pain off my face
when she brings out the cake

I will need some Tums
I feel burning here
I am such a liar
saying "yum!" through tears
I am getting sick
feel like I could puke
But I'll keep eating
Honey, just for you

I don't know
if this is worth going with you
But I know
you are just like me, and have to eat all your mama's bad food

I will need some Tums
I feel burning here
I am such a liar
saying "yum!" through tears
I am getting sick
feel like I could puke
But I'll keep eating
Honey, just for you

I will need some Tums
I feel burning here
(tired of eating what she wants me to eat)

I'm scared of your mum
she's sweet, but I swear
(how much more does she excpect me to eat?)
