The Lyrics

He said I was in my early 40's,
With a lot of eatin' before me,
And a moment came that made me want to whine.
I spent most of the next days, wondering" why she took my eating habits away,
Talkin' 'bout the cholesterol and talkin' 'bout NutraSweet each time.
Asked my dad when it sank in, that this might really be the real end.
How's it hit ya, when you get that kind of news.
Man what ya do.

And he says,
I went out driving,
I went "all you can eat" dining,
I grilled my steak for 2.7 seconds and enjoyed eatin" it too.
And my iced tea pitcher went deeper,
didn't use artificial sweetner,
And I ate that pot o' beans she'd been denying,
And he said someday I hope you get the chance,
To cook your food by fryin".

He said I was finally the cook,
she wouldn"t give me a second look.
And I became a cook a friend would like to have.
And all the sudden my shirts wouldn"t button,
It was really somethin", from eating all those dumplins,.
And my pants went up three sizes that year that made her mad.

Well I finally read a cook book,
And I took a good long hard look at what I'd do
If I could do it all again.
And then.

I'll bring the chicken. Alex Rodriguez will bring the taters. You fry up the eggplant. And Claude Prez will get the walnuts.

It was really funny, but it was hard for me to follow it because the pacing was, like, way off. 1-5-3.
