The Lyrics

Take my cooking skill, add 3 parts fantasy, and you get the genius of grub!
Watcha gonna do when you get out of jail?
I'm gonna have some brunch
What do you consider brunch?
Brunch, succulent brunch!

In the kitchen
With my oven, my GE oven
And my Cuisinart and my stick free pans
There's nothing I cannot cook with these hands
I'll cook dinner
With five courses, from different sources
Dom Deluise loves to reheat my stuff
Wolfgang's supreme, yet he's not in my league

In the kitchen
With the talent to please your palate
"The Joy of Cooking" has got nothing on me
A food architect of the highest degree
No one can bake
Like Julia, Miss Julia Childs
Choppin' and mixin', like Lagasse
Iron Chef champion, I think I could be

In the oven
Patries are rising, their taste arising
Martha Stewart's fit to lick my boots
I went insane; ran out of propane!

Steppin' out the door en route to Mickey D's?
Who needs fast food with a chef like me!
IHOP, Jack in the Box, Taco Bell, Burger King
Who needs fast food with a chef like me!

Alt Brown, Alt Brown!
Alt Brown, Alt Brown!

If you see them
Please remind them, all my ex-girlfriends
That I'm the genius of grub
They'll never eat this well in their lives
'Cause I'm the genius of grub
Time to eat!
By the way, "Alt Brown" is Alton Brown, one of the Food Network's resident superchefs (the best, IMHO)

(ABC05) DKTOS, but I'll trust you on the pacing. Hungry 5s.

(ABC05) Clever. What happened to the skat singing middle section? ("hepsibooyahbooyah, hepsibooyahbooyah..."). Better than Mariah Carey's parody. 555

(ABC05) Good

In da grub? DKTOS but simmered to perfection.

Thanks Red Ant, Agri, Adagio and Luke.

Also, I don't believe in scat singing, Agrimorfee. It's the Devil's music (just kidding; I just couldn't think of anything good)

(ABC) I actually saw Tom Tom Club live in Boston!

(G) I didn't realize I'd heard the OS before, until I wrapped my ears around a copy to rate/consider this.. I thought I'd grabbed an extended cut until I read the comments. Nice work on the verses.

Loved all the chef refs. Everything I know about cooking comes from THE FOOD NETWORK, although I tend to watch the cute women more than the men. Good parody. 555

(ABC05) Great job Charlie.

(G) well, normally I can figure out those American references, but in this one the little tin ducks started going by too fast for my electric rifle - Alt Brown?? (for starters) - it sounded good though, Charlie :)

I guess I missed this one last week! I loved it; I think it was very nicely written! I like how you mentioned the names of famous chefs at the appropriate places. 5-5-5 for this wonderful concoction. :)

(ABC) I guess you've got to be American to truly appreciate this, but a well-crafted piece nonetheless....

(ABC) DKTOS yet again, and midi doesn't help. but it looks pretty good. The writing skill here cerrtainly surpasses my cooking skills

ABC--I have to join the DKTOSes...but the ex-girlfriend line made me grin...=)
Phil Alexander - June 19, 2005 - Report this comment
I'm another DKTOS... never even heard of the artist either.. I liked the Dom Deluise line most
