The Lyrics

I was listening to the song when I suddenly realized "Cups and Ladles" rhymes with "Cat's in the Cradle". Seems that writing songs about silverware really helps pass the time. By the way, that's 9 AM to 10 PM.
I was eating my soup just the other day
Reached for my spoon but it wasn't there
I looked through the kitchen and said "what the hey?"
No silverware whatsoever in the cupboard today
Then I heard of this little store down the street
Their slogan was, "We've got yer silverware, man.
Our prices just can't be beat."

CHORUS 1:
We got your cups and your ladles and your salad spoons
And other things people use to eat their food
Would you like some chopsticks? Sure, why the heck not?
Got a repair service in case your fork is shot.
We'll fix it on the spot.

Well, I pour me some cereal the very next day
Reached into the cupboard where the silverware lay
There was a lot of stuff in there, had to search for a while
Couldn't find what I wanted, thought I'd blame it on Kyle
Slapped my forehead when I realized what I forgot to do,
Then I said to myself, "I forgot to buy some spoons, man.
I forgot to buy some spoons."

CHORUS 2:
We got your forks and your ladles and other silverware
And pitchforks to feed the hay to your mare
On weekdays, we're open from nine to ten
Hey, thanks a lot, please come again.
Lookin' forward to it, see you then.

We got good quality tools for you to cut your cheese,
You can have your name engraved on it if you please.
Silverware's not your thing? You don't have to go
We have a blue plate special for you, boy.
We have tupperware sale every day at four.

We got your cups and your ladles and your salad spoons
And other things people use to eat their food
Would you like some chopsticks? Sure, why the heck not?
We have a repair service in case your fork is shot.
We'll fix it on the spot.

Good job

This song really lends itself to this kind of parody with the "silver spoon" part in the chorus. Good stuff.
