The Lyrics

I can't get my oven to obey me
I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
something I can simply SET - then walk away...
I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
that won't assume I've been to U.C.L.A.

Well I've been reading this instruction man-u-al
I've read the programme stuff again and again, yeah
I'm so confused my brain has started to gel
I feel as zonked as Courtney Love on Letterman, yeah

Electricity - just wants to cook my meal
but I'm still fiddling with this pre-set auto knob (yeah)
just want this thing to bake my frozen leg-of-veal
without me supervising...
the whole - damn - job

I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
something I can simply SET and walk away from
I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
something that's spatter-free so I don't need an apron

Well I am wiped out by these decals on the front
what is this weird one - with circles and ar-ROWS (huh?)
and I can't figure out that oval thing with blades
or that little orange star...
......that suddenly GLOWS

I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
something I can simply SET - then walk away...
I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
with a FUNKY liquid crystal display

I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
something I can simply SET and walk away from
I need an oven that won't drive me crazy
something that's spatter-free so I don't need an apron

I DKTOS, so I can't vote, but I still laughed out loud, and can totally relate with your frustration!

thanks Ash, these 70s tunes ARE a bit distant.....Dee - have you ever seen anyone get it more wrong than Courtney Love on Letterman??.....thanks Johnny, at least an LCD looks nice...thanks Jeff, good advice, out of the kitchen, into the bar...thanks Ingebord, if only I could enter those 5s into the friggin panel, I'd be fine.....please listen to the original, Arwen - he was called Johnny Cougar then (first hit) and all the girls just swooned (no Vin Diesel though).....thanks John
