Song Description

A woman not very handy in the kitchen makes up for her unappetizing cuisine with other skills she possesses.

Story Behind the Song

This is a line I've heard a member of my family use when others would scoff at her cooking. I just took it from there.

Lyrics

You picked at your dinner with a sorrowful look
Said dammit woman, when you gonna learn to cook
Now darlin', there's no need getting sore
My talents don't lie in the kitchen unless I'm lying on the kitchen floor

You tell me my gravy tastes like dirt
I'll make it up to you with dessert
Now honey, if you're unhappy there's the door
My talents don't lie in the kitchen
unless I'm lying on the kitchen floor

We all have something we excel at
Skills that set us apart
I might not be domesticated
But I know the way to your heart

I'll admit I'm no Julia Child
But she couldn't serve my flavor of wild
Now Sugar, I know what you keep me here for

It wasn't my cuisine that made you say I do
It's the thousand other things I do to you
Now baby, can I give you some more
My talents don't lie in the kitchen
My talents don't lie in the kitchen
My talents don't lie in the kitchen unless I'm lying on the kitchen floor.
