I Can’t Cook

TTTO “I Can’t Dance”, Genesis

Hot stove’s never fun
Burning my food ‘fore I notice it’s done

Hot stove, making me sweat
So I run out of the kitchen just as fast as a jet

I can’t cook and I can’t bake
But I know how to buy it, it’s enough to fake
I can’t cook — nor deep fry
If I had to eat my cooking I would starve and die

Some friends tried to teach
The timing must be perfect but it’s just out of reach

I just manage to get food on my shirt
I might as well be making some mud pies out of dirt

‘Cos I can’t cook and I can’t bake
But I know how to buy it, it’s enough to fake
I can’t cook — nor deep fry
If I had to eat my cooking I would starve…

I can’t find anything in this place
Like the button to turn this on

Hot oil, sizzling my shoes
I think that this whole cooking thing is just a ruse

Thick smoke, and my kitchen it through
I’m never touching ovens is my newest rule

But I can’t cook and I can’t bake
But I know how to buy it, it’s enough to fake
I can’t cook — nor deep fry
If I had to eat my cooking I would starve…

I can’t find anything in this place
Like the button to turn this on
And this cooking — is too much to face

No I can’t cook and I can’t bake
But I know how to buy it, it’s enough to fake
I can’t cook — nor deep fry
If I had to eat my cooking I would starve and die

If I had to eat my cooking…I would starve and die
