From the album The Juggler

Lyrics

You’re chopping veggies
I’m boiling rice
We’ve made our dwelling
look so nice for our friends
Who’ll soon be rolling in
Pillows fluffed candles lit
But no one will sit on the couch
Let there be no doubt

It’s in the kitchen where we’ll talk
Of life, love, and ticking clocks
It’s on the kitchen chopping block
We’ll lay the news down

Wine’s pouring red and white
Oh we could stay all night
Sitting up on the countertops

Something ‘bout the scents and spice
Makes us feel so nice
The guard comes down
We let it all go

It’s in the kitchen where we talk
Of life, love and ticking clocks
It’s on the kitchen chopping block
We lay the news down

From Kolkata to Spain
Shanghai to Maine
The kitchen entertains
Feeds our bodies and our brains

Dishes are piling up
The night is far from young
Coats are on
Kisses all around

Now it’s just me and you
The lights are low
The music too
You catch my eye
I know that look

In the kitchen
Enough talk
Of life, love, and ticking clocks
By the kitchen chopping block
You lay me down
