The Lyrics

DKTOS?...Try OS
Oh, my first dinner
It's dinner for two
And we both foresee
The tension I will go through
Insisting, "I'll still try"
Oh no, you call my bluff
I stoop to crawl...

That's me with the chowder
That's me with the crock pot
Using my new kitchen
Trying to heat up some soup
And I don't know what I am doin'
Oh no, the hen's too tough
I haven't spent enough

I fought with the urge for snacking
I fought with the urge to drink
I think I sought to squat and cry

Every mixture (of)
Ev'ry grain of flour
Confusing, these directions
Dying to heave a pie at you
While I search for my dicing tool, drool
Oh no, the pastry puffs
They start to fall

The jitters crest
The littered mess hints of my misery
The bitter stress drips
Like coffee mixed with tea - wail:
"What if all these recipes
just fail to astound?"
And now my dread's too much

I thought that my nerve was cracking
I thought that I'd curse and slink
The drink I sought was strong and dry

That was just Jim Beam
That was just obscene

That's me on a bender
That's me and I'm crocked, tight
Bruising my new dishes
Trying to heal cups with glue
And I'm too stoned to bind and fuse 'em
Oh no, I've stained my cuff
My damsel's in a huff...

I coughed as I stirred from napping
I balked as you turned to wink
I think I caught the thoughts you sighed:

"That was just a dream"
"My guy, why cry?"
"You're my chef supreme"
"Just extreme, such cuisine, cream..."

Awww, bless your heart - maybe you should just get a takeaway :^) Your cooking skills may be a bit ropey, but your parody skills are definitely worth a 555.

Leo - Just a word to the wise - "If you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen". =;-) Delicious parody. This one ereally cooks.

(ABC) So sorry i never read this one...this was hysterical...every line rhymed to the original, as if they were meant to be there. Great job!
bobpiecheese - November 14, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC5) I don't know what the last four lines were trying to convey, but the rest of the parody was brilliant. 555 for sure!

(ABC) wow, just excellent - I've tried many times to parody this and failed - tricky pacing - but you nailed it (sure knocked my abandoned "Losing My Best Pigeon" into a cocked hat) and funny to boot - great stuff Leo - 555

I've been there before far too many times... I can't cook for squat and almost burnt down my apartment 3 times in the last month!

Fun parody of this one, I've read a number of "Losing My Religion" parodies, it's a deserving target--cool.

(ABC) Take song, strain out old words, mix in new words, add 5 cups of flour, 5 cups of milk, 5 eggs...

The first OS this round I know by heart - excellent work, Leo. You ought to record this one. 555

Leo - Is the thirsty Thursday still on the menu? I may have found what I needed to try to get back, if you will recall some email message exchanges we had a few months back. There is a hint here somewhere between the lines. Ciao, Paesano.
