  • Parody written circa 1988

Lyrics

Plastic silverware
Taken from the cafeteria
A sandwich made with care
Covered now with grey bacteria

Traces of lunch -- long ago -- that didn't work out right
Traces of lunch...

Splattered globs of cheese
Covering the walls and ceiling
Bacon bits and grease
Once afire, but now congealing

Chorus:

Traces of lunch... long ago... that didn't work out right
Traces of lunch... on my counter-top tonight.

BRIDGE:

I close my eyes
And say a prayer
That under my sink I'll find
A kitchen cleaner still there
Somewhere...

Shriveled tangerines
Dripping something like molasses
Faded salad greens
Turned to brownish liquid masses

Chorus 2:

Traces of hope... In the night... That my friends will ignore
These... traces of lunch... on my floor.

additional bits

Folded BLTs

Traces of soap
In the night
As I tried to remove
These traces of lunch
From my life
