I had John Denver with me in the kitchen today
Alone in my thoughts as I cut onions and sauté mushrooms today, I whipped this up in my head. It was good personal entertainment amidst menial tasks and brainless work.
Sung to the tune of "Leaving on a Jet Plane"
The pace is fast, the tension is high
I'm standin' here doing mise en place
Finger burns and small cuts are daily norm
But the pots and pans, they're heavy for me
Sous chef is yelling', he's blowin' his top
Already I'm so stinky I could die
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you like my food
Eat it like you've not eaten before
Cause I'm a-cookin' in a restaurant
Don't know what I am doing here
O baby, I love to learn
