No Soup Today

TTTO “Nothing to Say” by Carla Ulbrich

I stood and listened to your story
You thought “it’s deep, evocatory”
But you pushed before your turn
For all I care, you can go burn
‘Cause you’ll have no soup today

No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
At home I was a simple cook, I treasured every spice
Now that I am in New York, with speed I chop and dice
And you’ll get no soup today

I consulted all the cook books, my soups have not been hacked
I used my expertise, my soups were all exact
What you did was kind of hasty, it was surely not that smart
Now I really do not care if I’ve broken your poor heart
You’ll get no soup today

No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
My recipes are secret, I’m guarding every page
And if you try to steal them, expect to meet my rage
And to get no soup today

So try to be more serious, and get outside your head
I cannot say to you any more than I have already said
My soup, you know is awesome, full of originality
Now I must ask you all to give up and yield to me
You can have no soup today

No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
At home I practiced hours, mastering arcane techniques
So now I’m barring you — for at least two dozen weeks
And to get no soup today

I care not about the planet, not even just one tree
And I stop abuse by those who try their hand abusing me
My soups won’t sell in churches, not even at peace rally
You can have no soup today

No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
At home I was a genius, no two soups were the same
So now I dictate the rules of this convoluted day
So you get no soup today

No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
No soup no soup no soup no soup no soup today
I have a special soup, using my own style and wit
I moved to New York with hopes up — I think I finally have a hit
So you get no soup today
