The Lyrics

Want to own a bakery?
Be an artisan of pastry craft?
Beause if you want a loaf not short,
A loaf that is so outstanding
Reckon the power of the yeast
For it is the bread dough riser
10 packets for 6 dollars and 60 cents

What did I know?
My mind was blank
I kneaded dough so much my fingers would ache all the time
A bakery
I could achieve
To bake wheat, rye or white, all for the public so fancy
One day I saw
Crossing the street
An old magician with a warped mind staring straight at me

Still in my dreams
I always bear
That cursed purchase that pissed me off, my kitchen needs repair

Said "Hey now, Jack
Your bread loaves turning slack?
Come have a look and see
Purchase this pack from me
Can't resist!
Buy this now or it will be missed
This is the real deal
That I'm willing to sell
$6.66--the power of my yeast
Super high rate of gas released"

Cash exchanged and
Walked to my place
Then I start to try a new loaf of rye
So that night
The flour is mixing right
The baking soon begun
Oven gets it done
$6.66 for power of his yeast
Bowl of dough was sitting out all night

(A dough rising solo)

The morning comes
Walk in kitchen--Oh Lord!
The dough has now congealed
All over walls and beams
The crazy sprawl
All on the chairs and boards
Can't believe my eyes, the dough ball's oversize!

6 feet thick! The power of the yeast
6 feet thick! A disaster for me!

Now looking back
I have now learned
To resist any sales pitch
From any strange vendor
Such muck and mire
And now of course
I had to hire
A maid to clean up all the floors

What is it with Iron Maiden and bakery themed parodies? Yours about bread and Rex's about pies? Maybe the should be called "Oven Kitchen"

(Artistry) The ending was a bit lacking, but you kept a strong narrative, which is something I can hardly ever do. The pacing was tight as hell as well (well, there were some slips, but that might just be a slip in my memory). 555!

(Artistry) You need to contact Tim Burton to make the video. Great story that could use a more explosive ending.

Such an innocent idea for such a not so innocent style song, it made the contrast in this one fantastic Agri, really liked this one.
