The Lyrics

Egalitarians please note: The "singer" of the song has no gender specified.
I'm gonna cook dinner tonight,
Mommy says that I'm the chef and I'm gonna do it right
First I'll put an apron on and tie a bow in back,
Then I'll place the groceries on the counter from the sack
Yes, I'm making dinner for the first time for my family,
My stomach it is bouncing like a red rubber ball.

Crack open eggs, and put them in the pan
Pieces of the shells fell in, gotta get them if I can,
Dropped another egg down on the floor while reaching in,
Slippery stuff is everywhere and Mommy's looking grim.

Put a towel on the floor to soak up all the stuff,
I've got to scramble all the eggs before they get too tough
We let the frozen spinach thaw so it mixes in
I was scrambling eggs and spinach hard and got some on my chin.

Get out the plates, and all the silverware,
I tripped on my apron string and they scattered everywhere,
Broke two plates and bent a fork, fell down and scraped my legs,
Got the table set - Oh No! I forgot about the eggs.

We sat down to eat and Daddy said the grace,
Though the kitchen is a mess, there's a smile on Mommy's face,
She says this is the first of many times I'll get to cook,
Mommy thinks that it was worth the trouble that it took.

Just a lighthearted story that could happen in almost any family (and probably has).
