The Lyrics

Part of my "Run Away" self-challenge. Every collection has a story...
Wish I could cook but I suck
Burned ev'ry dish I have here, real bad luck
But I still collect all the recipes
To see the things I could do
Toast is far from me, okay?
Toast ev'ry bun to the charcoal point, lame
But I still collect all the recipes
Cause the recipes might bring, recipes might bring food

May seem like an odd endeavour but it's more than just to gaze
At the lovingly-framed pictures of lamb chops and frosted cakes
That I'd only burn to embers or dump hard rocks onto plates
Been told that practice makes perfect, wanna live up to that phrase, yeah
Not yet been hospitalised, I know when not to partake, ayy-ayy (ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
Had Macca's way too many times but I won't give up, no way, ayy (ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

I try to cook but I suck
Gone through ten frying pans here, real bad luck
But I still collect all the recipes
To have a go and improve
Bone-dry, that's all of my steaks
Bones left inside ev'ry fish finger, pain
But I still collect all the recipes
Cause the recipes might bring, recipes might bring food
Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Recipes might bring, recipes might bring food (ooh-ooh)

Kinda sick of that one question that folks always seem to pop:
"If you still fail at the old ones, why get new books?" Needs to stop (ooh-ooh, yeah)
What's wrong with a book collection? Like to read them when I'm not
Dumping cold gloop in the toilet, calms me down after my flops, yeah
Little better ev'ry time, getting closer to good tastes, ayy-ayy (ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
Can work what I've not done right when the variables change, ayy (ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

Keep tryna cook, I still suck (oh-oh)
Closer to "bland" now than "sheer gross-ass muck"
So I'll still collect all the recipes
So then I might serve to you (so-so)
Something with more of a taste (ayy-ayy)
Something that doesn't look like black brick cake
So I'll still collect all the recipes (ayy)
Cause the recipes might bring, recipes might bring food
Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Recipes might bring, recipes might bring food (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh)
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo (ooh-ooh) (ooh-ooh, yeah)
Recipes might bring, recipes might bring food (ooh-ooh)

Ah-yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, so-so
Recipes might bring, recipes might bring food

I bet this song'd just make Rob Paravonian's head explode.
