The lady sticks to me like white on rice.
She never cooks the same way twice.
Maybe it's the mushrooms. Maybe the tomatoes.
I can't reveal her name but Eggplant is her game.

When my baby cooks her Eggplant,
She don't read no book.
She's got a Giocanna kinda of dirty look

And my baby cooks her Eggplant,
[| From: EGGPLANT Lyrics - MICHAEL FRANKS |]
Bout 19 different ways.
Sometimes I just have it raw with Mayonnaise.

-break-

Maybe its the way she grates her cheese,
Or just the freckles on her knees.
Maybe its the scallions. Maybe she's Italian.
I can't reveal her name but Eggplant is her game.

Wow, Qmax, that's a lot of food in one song!

The clothes are so strange. I am reminded of watching some hokey 40s movie with friends and when it was over someone said, "No wonder our parents are weird."
I secretly walk around the house dressed like a banana with fruit on my head. Doesn't everyone? lol. Carmen Miranda is a hoot. Love Busby Berkeley.

Same album that had Popsicle Toes. But that was really about physiology.

Still, you gotta like food metaphors.

Oh my, that takes me back. It was the first LC song I ever heard. It was the early '70s and I was living in Copenhagen.

Another Diamond from Neil!
(it's much better live, but I couldn't find a video of it!)

"Soggy Pretzels"
You were cryin' in your pretzels when I met you
You were washing
All the salt away from the dough
You were cryin' in your pretzels
And I'll never forget you
But, baby, just why, I'll ever know

Cryin' in your pretzels
Cryin' in your beer
Cryin' on the table
That's where I found you dear

[Spoken:]
Yes, my sweet I came into that bar
It was in Mississippi
There you were, sitting in the corner
Crying in your pretzels
You'd already sogged up
A whole plate of potato chips
But the management didn't mind
Because you were a regular customer

And I saw you sittin' there and I said
"That person needs a friend,
And I'm gonna be a friend
Ain't nobody deserves to cry in their pretzels
All night and wash away the salt."
So I kinda sidled up to you and I said,
"What can I do for you? How can I help you?
What can I do to ease the pain?"

Well, you were cryin' in your pretzels
Oh, you were cryin' in your beer
Yes, that was the night I met you
And I'll always hold you near

Nothing Compares to you

It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you took your love away

I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away

Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing ...
I said nothing can take away these blues,
'Cause nothing compares ...
Nothing compares to you
