  • Well I'm your ten star blue plate special
    I've always heard you say
    But you're treating me tonight
    Like I'm left over's in the greasy spoon caf
    And you're my high class de-luxe menu
    With genuine meal appeal
    But now you got some doubts about me eating out
    And you know that just ain't real

    Cos something's cookin' in the kitchen
    Something's brewin' in the air
    Something's burnin' in your microwave
    And freezin' in your Frigidaire
    Something's cookin' in the kitchen
    Something's steamin' up the room
    Something's broken down your thermostat
    'N' I'm pickin' up a feelin'
    You're gonna hit the ceilin' soon

    Baby, there's one lesson you oughta know I've learned
    When you order what you want in other restaurants
    You're sure to get your fingers burned
    So try to be a little more tender
    C'mon fall right off that bone
    'Cos I don't go chasin' after hamburger
    When I got steak at home

    Refrain (x2).
