  • We live in a drive-through generation
    About the closest thing to a home cooked mea
    Is a crazy made-in-three
    We hardly ever gather at our table
    Life's too busy to be a family
    Now if you ask me

    The whole world needs a kitchen
    Like the one we live in
    The smell of supper cooking on the stove
    Food for the soul and a taste of mama's wisdom

    Tired daddy dragging through the screen door
    Hugs and kisses and a 'thanking the Lord'
    They don't make it like that anymore
    The whole world needs a kitchen

    It's where we sat and did our homework
    And that bottom stair was a barber's chair
    When mama lowered our ears
    It's where we watch mom and daddy dancing
    To the Rolling Stones and old George Jones
    Man, I swear

    The whole world needs a kitchen
    Like the one we live in
    The smell of supper cooking on the stove
    Food for the soul and a taste of mama's wisdom

    Tired daddy dragging through the screen door
    Hugs and kisses and a 'thanking the Lord'
    They don't make it like that anymore
    The whole world needs a kitchen

    It's where we talk about our problems
    And it's where we solve them
    Lord knows we still got them

    The whole world needs a kitchen
    Like the one we live in
    The smell of supper cooking on the stove
    Food for the soul and a taste of mama's wisdom

    Tired daddy dragging through the screen door
    Hugs and kisses and a 'thanking the Lord'
    They don't make it like that anymore
    The whole world needs a kitchen

    Like the one we live in
    The smell of supper cooking on the stove
    Food for the soul and a taste of mama's wisdom

    The whole world needs a kitchen
    Hugs and kisses and a 'thanking the Lord'
    They don't make it like that anymore
    The whole world needs a kitchen
