Place at the Table

lyrics

Here’s my special room with the cabinet, and the ironing board and the TV set
Here’s my special chair, here’s my special place, here’s my special mug with the smiley face
Is that all I get? Is that all I get? For all the years and all the sweat.

Here’s the special pill with the childproof lock, and the pictures framed and the compression socks
Here’s my Nutrishake and the tuna melt, and the button I push when I need help.

Is that all I get? Is that all I get? For all the years and all the sweat.

Here is the thing that I really want

I want my place, my place at the table
I want my place, my place at the table

I’ll bring things, I know you’ll love
To load your plate, and fill your cup
I know everything will be just right

I’ll bring walnuts and a case of beer
I’ll bring cold cuts, take a look right here
And some cocktail shrimp and cookies shaped like shells

I’ll bring flowers the neighbors won’t miss
I’ll bring stories and a big wet kiss
And a hand upon your knee you won’t expect

I’ll bring things, I know you’ll love
To load your plate, and fill your cup
I know everything will be just right

I’ll bring pork chops and some sauekraut
Hot peppers that will make you shout
And a dance move that I learned from all the kids

I’ll bring bonbons, and some peppermints
A shot of bourbon that will make you wince
And a song about a hunter and his horn

I want my place, my place at the table
