The Lyrics

why I'm not a chef
shouldn't it be rice, on top of egglpant,
isn't starch and veggies somewhat wrong?
and should I have to take a little parsley
throw it on the plate, cut short or long?

you know it's gonna taste just that much better
if we could mix the rice and spuds together

shouldn't it be rice, inside that cabbage
where's my buddy Emeril Lagasse?
and shouldn't it be rice, all dressed in butter,
if you want to have a big fat ass?

happy cooking time is never ending,
Martha watches from her cell,
while time she's spending
hey, shouldn't it be rice??

maybe if I fry and mix and bake and fix it'll all taste good
maybe then there wouldn't be a single thing to serve to you
when cooking, I'm harried,
and not very happy
shouldn't it be rice??

you know it seems the more I think about it
I really love my rice, can't live without it
so shut up about it,
cause everything's with rice

I thought this was about Condoleeze Rice when I saw the title... DKTOS.

*spelling check* Condoleeza, not Condoleeze.

Condoleeza Rice is smarter than any of you give her credit, and abuse is always characterized by diminishing and denigrating the characer of the one being denigrated. Talk is cheap.
