  • Seven O'Clock in the evening
    Watchin' somethin' stupid on TV
    I'm zoned out on the sofa
    When my wife comes in the room and sees me

    And she says "is this 'Behind the Music'
    With Lynard Skynard?"
    And I say I don't know
    Say, it's gettin' late, watcha wanna do for dinner?

    She says "I kinda had a big lunch
    So I'm not super hungry"
    I said, well you know, baby, I'm not starvin' either
    But I could eat"

    She said "So whadya have in mind?"
    I said I don't know what about you?
    She said "I don't care, if you're hungry, let's eat"
    I said that's what we're gonna do!

    But first you gotta tell me
    What it is you're hungry for!
    And she says "let me think,
    What's left in our refrigerator?"

    I said well, there's tuna, I know
    She said "That went bad a week ago!"
    I said is the chili okay?
    She said "you finished that yesterday!"

    I hopped up and I said
    I don't know, do you want to get something delivered?
    She's like "why would I want to eat liver?
    I don't even like liver!"

    I'm like no, I said 'delivered'
    She's like "I heard you say liver!"
    I'm like I should know what I said
    She's like "whatever, I just don't want any liver!"

    Well I was gonna say something
    But my cell phone started to ring
    Now who could be callin' me?
    Well I checked my caller ID

    It was just cousin Larry
    Callin' for the third time today
    My wife said "Let it go to voicemail"
    I said okay

    Where were we? Oh, Dinner, Right
    So what d'ya want to do?
    She said "why don't you whip up somethin in the kitchen?"
    Yeah, I said why don't you?

    And then she said "baby, can't we just go out to dinner, please?"
    I says no
    She says "yes"
    I says no
    She says "yes"
    I says no
    She says "yes
    Oh, here's your keys"

    I step a little bit closer
    Say okay, where ya want to go?
    She says "how about The Ivy?"
    I said yeah, well I don't know

    I don't feel like gettin all dressed up
    And eatin' expensive food
    She's says "Olive Garden?"
    I say nah, I'm not in the mood

    And Burrito King would make me gassy
    There's no doubt
    She says "Just forget about it"
    I said no, I swear I'm gonna take you out!

    Then I get an idea
    I says I know what we'll do!
    She says "What?"
    I say, guess?
    She says "What?"
    I say we're goin' to the drive-thru!

    So we head out the front door
    Open the garage door
    Then I open the car doors
    And we get in those car doors

    Put my key in the ignition
    And then I turn it sideways
    Then we fasten our seat belts
    As we pull out the driveway

    Then we drive to the drive-thru
    Heading off to the drive-thru
    We're approaching the drive-thru
    Getting close to the drive-thru!

    Almost there at the drive-thru
    Now we're here at the drive thru
    Here in line at the drive-thru
    Did I mention the drive-thru?

    Well here we are
    In the drive-thru line, me and her
    Cars in front of us, cars in back of us
    All just waiting to order

    There's some idiot in a Volvo
    With his brights on behind me
    I lean out the window and scream
    Hey, Whatcha tryin to do, blind me?

    My wife says "maybe we should park
    We could just go eat inside"
    I said I'm wearin' bunny slippers
    So I ain't leavin' this ride

    Now a woman on a speaker box
    Is sayin' "Can I take your order, please?"
    I said yes indeed, you certainly can
    We'd like two hamburgers with onions and cheese

    Then my wife says
    "Baby, hold on, I've changed my mind!
    I think I'm gonna have a chicken sandwich
    Instead, this time"

    I said you always get a cheeseburger!
    She says "That's not what I'm hungry for"
    I put my head in my hands and screamed,
    I don't know who you are anymore!

    The voice on the speaker says
    "I don't have all day!"
    I said, then, take our order,
    And we'll be on our way!

    I wanna get a chicken sandwich
    And I want a cheeseburger, too
    She's like "you want onions on that?"
    I'm like, yeah, I already said that I do

    Plus we need curly fries
    And don't you dare forget it!
    And two medium root beers
    No, just one, we'll split it"

    Then I said I'm guessin' that
    You're probably not too bright
    So read me back my order
    Let's make sure you got it right

    She says "one, you want a chicken sandwich
    Two, you want a cheeseburger
    Three, curly fries, and a large root beer"
    Stop, don't go no further!

    I never ordered a large rootbeer
    I said medium, not large!
    Then she says "we're havin' a special,
    I supersized you at no charge"

    "Oh" and that's all
    I could say, was "Oh"
    And she says "now there is somethin' else
    That I really think you should know

    You can have unlimited refills
    For just a quarter more"
    I say, great, except we're in the drive thru
    So what would I want that for?

    Then she says "Wait a minute
    Your voice sounds so familiar hey, is this Paul?
    And my wife is all like "no, that ain't Paul,
    Now tell me, who's this Paul?

    She says "Oh, he's just some guy
    Who goes to school with me
    I sat behind him last year
    And I copied off him in Geometry

    I said I know a guy named Paul
    He used to be my plumber
    He was prematurely bald
    And he moved to Pittsburgh last summer

    He also had bladder problems
    And a really bad infection on his toe
    And she said "Mister, please, you can stop right there,
    That's way more than I needed to know!"

    And then we both were quiet
    And things got real intense
    Then she says "next window please,
    That'll be five dollars and eighty two cents"

    So we inched ahead in line
    Movin' painfully slow
    I got a little bored
    So I turned on the radio

    Click, turned it off
    Because my wife was getting a headache
    So we both just sat there quietly
    For her sake

    Then I looked at her
    And she looked back at me
    And I said umm,
    I think you have somethin' in your teeth

    She turned away from me
    And then turned back and said "did I get it?"
    I said yeah well, I mean, most of it
    But hey, ya know, don't sweat it

    Then she said "how about now?"
    I said yeah, almost
    There's still a little bit there
    But don't worry, it's probably just a piece of toast"

    Now we're at the pay window
    Or whatever you call it
    Put my hand in my pocket
    I can't believe there's no wallet!

    And the lady at the window's like,
    "Well, well, well, that'll be five eighty two"
    I turn around to my wife, and say
    How much have you got on you?

    She just rolls her eyes and says
    "I'll pay for this, I guess"
    So she reaches into her purse
    And pulls out the American Express

    I hand it to the lady
    And she says "oh, dear
    It's gotta be cash only
    We don't take credit cards here"

    I took back the card and said
    Gee, really? Well that sucks
    And that's when I found out
    My wife was only carryin' three bucks

    I said I thought you were
    Going to hit the ATM today
    She says "I never got around to it
    So where's your wallet anyway?

    And I said never mind,
    Just help me to find some change
    Now the lady at the window
    Is lookin' at me kinda strange

    And she says "Mister, please,
    We gotta move this line along"
    I said now hold your stinkin' horses lady,
    We won't be long

    So, we looked around inside the glove-box
    And check the mat beneath my feet
    I found a nickel in the ashtray
    And a couple pennies and a dime in the space between he seats

    Before long I had a little pile
    Of coins of every sort
    The lady counts it up and says
    "You're still about a dollar short"

    And now my woman's got this weird look
    Frozen on her face
    She screams, "you know
    I wasn't even really hungry in the first place"

    And so I turned around
    To the cashier again
    I shrugged and said okay
    Forget the chicken sandwich then

    So I pick up my change
    Pick up my receipt
    And I drive to the pickup window
    Man, I just can't wait to eat

    And now we see this acne ridden
    Kid about sixteen
    Wearin' a dorky name tag that says
    "Hello, my name is Eugene"

    And he hands me a paper bag
    I look him in the eyes
    And I say to him, hey, Eugene,
    Could I get some ketchup for my fries?

    Well he looks at me
    And I look at him
    And he looks at me
    And I look at him

    And he looks at me
    And I look at him
    And he says "I'm sorry
    What did you want again?"

    I say ketchup!
    And he says "oh yeah, that's right
    I just spaced out there for a second
    I'm really kind of burnt tonight"

    And then he hands me the ketchup
    And now we're finally drivin' away
    And the food is drivin' me mad
    With its intoxicating bouquet

    I'm starvin' to death
    By the time we pull up at the traffic light
    I say, baby, gimme that burger,
    I just gotta have a bite!

    So she reaches in the bag
    And pulls out the burger
    And she hands me the burger
    And I pick up the burger

    And then I unwrap the paper
    I bite into those buns
    And I just can't believe it
    They forgot the onions!
