Default anything but love: the omelette song

.
the kids grew up then they moved away
and got divorced
they called me up again on Christmas day
their laughter's forced

I didn't know what to say
don't really matter anyway I guess
but they were supposed to be the best

grandkids everyday I wonder
do they need a hug
I never see them
they're so far away
I send them junk
I don't know what to do
have I lived too long
to see them through
this mess
but I never thought
I was the best

there must be one hell of an omelette
cookin up around here somewhere
there's got to be one hell of an omelettte
cookin up around here somewhere

there better be one hell of an omelette
cookin up around here somewhere

.


daddy flies for northwest orient airlines
mama flies for northwest orient airlines
me I don't fly very much at all
I'm only ten months old
me an louise stay home and watch
them whales float in off the shoreline

good ol' louise
she gets up to fix my breakfast
good ol' louise
she hugs me when I had a wreck
good ol' louise I ove her so
but when the folks come home
she has to go
and the last trip out they brought her back
a fancy hong kong necklace

but I think I'm too young
to understand
anything but love

there must be one hell of an omelette
cookin up around here somewhere
.

Very good.
Direct but indirect.
Pointed, but smothering.
Specific, but recognizable everywhere.
Terrific writing.
