lyrics

One of these days I’m going to put my books in the oven
Maybe that way I can bake tale just for you and me.
Cause the news they’re serving’s just not to my taste.
This volume needs an edit and a dusting of your grace.

All of my cookbooks are dog-eared and oiled.
The library detectives are at my door
My overdue subscription is raising suspicion.
But my cooker is filled with tender words.

It seems they’re reporting on a race that doesn’t end
Riders are smashing into walls.
I can’t drive a Honda
I don’t look like Peter Fonda
But I can chop and blend with speed.

It doesn’t matter to me,
‘cause I can bake
Turn to 180 degrees
Yeah I can bake.
Flip to page 23
Yeah I can bake.
Pick the words straight from the tree
Yeah I can bake.

Set the dial and chops the onions
Soon our pages will be steaming.
No GMOs in this hefty tome.

It doesn’t matter to me
‘cause I can bake
My catalogue is tasty
Yeah I can bake
Dewy decimal pastry
Yeah I can bake
I’m writing kitchen poetry
Yeah I can bake

Our story’s as sweet as the sugar cane farm
Just bring your glasses and your caramel wink

It doesn’t matter to me
‘cause I can bake
I’ve got a bibliography
Yeah I can bake
It doesn’t matter to me
Yeah I can bake
My library fine is paid and I’m free
Yeah I can bake
It doesn’t matter to me
Yeah I can bake.
And keep your eyes peeled for the screenplay…
