Lyrics

A little dinner music
while you eat your heart out
you can serve but you can't take it
when it's on your plate
it has always been my dream
to go well with a good steak
it has also been my dream
to keep you from staying awake
whatever you take me for
whatever you wish I'd be
I can never be less or more
than the song I've promised to sing.
Each word I sing was conceived
in my finest moments of despair
my self-sufficience so inspired
by your thoughtful lack of care
if I'm helping you to rest
I'm doing something good at least I guess
if only that were good enough for me
you see
whatever you take me for
whatever you wish I'd be
I can never be less or more
than the song I've promised to sing.

And you say and you say
what you really feel
I'm not like the other one
I won't rest until I'm done.
