The Lyrics

you're really makin dinner, I can see you're lost at last
so you grab a piece of garlic, and you throw it in real fast
well you wouldn't need that ginger if you used the fennell paste
the things you like to put in there I just think are a waste

are you feedin in the yeast?
dropping a bit of chives
are you drinking herbal teas?
did you add a splash of wine?

you've been cooking all my foods it seems like for almost seven years
and the only thing that makes it good is washing down with beer
the course you took at college must have been so bad, reneged..
you burn the toast at breakfast and you cannot boil an egg..

are you feedin in the yeast?
dropping a bit of chives
are you drinking herbal teas?
did you add a splash of wine?

I spent a lot of money as we invested in the spice
so try a little bit of lemon grass I heard it's really nice
well I wouldn't ask you baby can you try a little sage
how difficult can you make it to make a PBJ...

are you feedin in the yeast?
dropping a bit of chives
are you drinking herbal teas?
did you add a splash of wine?

are you shredding up some peach?
have you learned about the thyme?
edibility we'll reach
and we'll live a life sublime

are you feedin in the yeast?
dropping a bit of chives
are you drinking herbal teas?
did you add a splash of wine?

Haha, Malky! When I was younger, I misheard this title as "Reading in the yeast"...this was a fun and excellently subbed bit of word play.
