Wild Rice Soak
There's Pizza delivery
and Dairy Queen
Why can't more of you boil some tators
with your corned beef alligators
kick back and have a toke
Like a lazy house cat
where you can screw and smoke.
Set your beef on simmer and let your wild rice soak.
Don't want no pita plates
Sushi or southern fried chicken wings.
Won't be the last man standing at the buffet onion rings.
I'd love to teach the world to eat
in perfect harmony.
If you cooked yourself and me a meal
that'd be fine by me.
The only one with home cuisine
is your trusty watch dog Jo.
With his chewy train of gravy,
dog buscuits, and Alpo.
Wouldn't it be worth the extra effort
to make your cooking great.
You could tell me how you made it
when you put it on my plate.
Penny wise, restaurant foolish.
Smoke good tobacco and sip imported Gin.
Let them tax us straight to hell, strut your stuff,
and play to win.
Dance, the dance of lovers with
a most kissable, Kiss Me Kate.
Put a fat notch on your scorecard before the hour gets too late.
Then, grab up your serving dish
flip yourself a yolk.
Put your meat on low, that's simmer son
and do the wild rice soak.
