lyrics

Forgettable side dish
Sitting next to grandma's gravy bowl
How'd it get there? What's it made from?
I don't know
I don't know

It was kind of beige and a little bit lumpy
The kids won't touch it; no one else will complain
Aunt Esther seems unusually quiet and grumpy
As we sit around and guess what the bowl contains

Oh, it might be potatoes
Maybe with parsley
Perhaps some parsnip
Is that nutmeg or oregano?

Forgettable side dish
Sitting next to grandma's gravy bowl
How'd it get there? What's it made from?
We don't know; we don't know

"Juliette, have you tried this?"
A little bite and a smaller smile

And the meal goes on
The rain dish stays full
Until it disappears
And is only remembered
Late in the evening
In the cobweb memory of a farting dog
