The Lyrics

I wrote this parody after I was forced by my wife to go to an INCREDIBLY expensive restaurant in NYC. She also made me promise not to bitch about the experience till the next day. Perhaps some of you married guys have had a similar experience. Hope not.
We just ate at "Daniel"
Now let me explain
One of the hardest parts was
The wife wouldn't let me complain, oh,oh,oh
As soon as Daniel opened the door
I said “I've got 200"
He said "you're gonna need a whole lot more"

Daniel gave us the menu, how nice
But I was really confused 'cause
The food didn't have any price, oh, oh ,oh
So I asked Daniel,” how much more or less”
He said “Not to worry
We take American Express”

First he brought out some little sardines
Then came the tiniest entree I've eeeeeever seen, oh, oh ,oh
I must admit it tasted real good
But at ten bucks a forkful
I should hope that it would

Daniel the owner, he is richer than me
He charges way too much, but he eats for free
I'm going broke, but to him it's all a joke
Daniel you're a thief, and I hope that you choke

Daniel suggested that we try some wine
I asked for a bottle of '08
But they only had '79, oh ,oh, oh
I guess I'll be paying for that for a while
But I know it's worth it
Just to see Daniel smile

Then it was time to have some dessert
I said " I hope it's included
I've already gone for my shirt", oh ,oh ,oh
Soon after that the bill did arrive
I looked at Daniel
Then I broke down and cried

Soon we were making our way to the door
First we stopped at the coatroom
So I could pay a little bit more, oh, oh ,oh
I said to the wife " Get your coat off the rack.
Please don't forget it
Because we won't be coming back!"

Squire - To paraphrase J.P. Morgan - "Anybody who can afford to eat here doesn't need to know how much it costs." Priceless job here. ;D

Enjoyed this a lot, and liked the take on the menu and "just to make Daniel smile." The only suggestion is getting a little closer to the pacing of the original. Otherwise, clever concept.
