Michael Franks – Eggplant lyrics

Eggplant
Michael Franks
From: The Art of Tea
Whenever I explore the land of Yen
I always take one on the chin
And now this lioness has almost made me tame.
I can't pronounce her name but Eggplant is her game.

The lady sticks to me like white on rice.
She never cooks the same way twice.
Maybe it's the mushrooms. Maybe the tomatoes.
I can't reveal her name but Eggplant is her game.

When my baby cooks her Eggplant,
She don't read no book.
She's got a Giocanna kinda of dirty look

And my baby cooks her Eggplant,
Bout 19 different ways.
Sometimes I just have it raw with Mayonnaise.

-break-

Maybe it's the way she grates her cheese,
Or just the freckles on her knees.
Maybe it's the scallions. Maybe she's Italian.
I can't reveal her name but Eggplant is her game.

When my baby cooks her Eggplant,
She don't read no book.
She's got a Giocanna kinda of dirty look.

And my baby cooks her Eggplant,
Bout 19 different ways.
Sometimes I just have it raw with Mayonnaise.

    This song is unequivocally forplay and s**; eggplant is the metaphor. "whenever i explore the land of yen, i always take one on the chin" - he gets rebuffed if he is too forward. "and now this lioness has almost made me tame" - he has learned he has to play the game her way. "the lady sticks to me like white on rice" - he can't stop thinking about s** with her. "she never cooks the same way twice" - never does it the same way twice. "and my baby cooks her eggplant, bout 19 different ways.
    Sometimes I just have it raw with mayonnaise" - uh, self explanatory.
