Don't you know the kitchen is hot?

All you seem to consider are the meals that frequently

Leave the kitchen on an honest platter

Served to you with tough love written on napkins

You wait with a knife and fork for your belly to be filled

At the same time every day, every week

Don't you know the kitchen is hot?

Do you realize that flames roar and oil splattters

Hot oil leaves stains on garments and burns on skin

Don't you know that cooking demands staying on your feet

Don't you know that bending over breaks your back

Do you realize that cooking includes washing dishes

Cleaning spills because the kitchen must stay clean

Real food isn't microwaved, real food takes time

Real food is made with love

He loves cooking and giving it to you so you won't starve

But sometimes it would be nice if someone else could cook

For a change

Because the kitchen, it is, really hot
