Story behind the song
It's a song that pokes fun at how many restaurants make tons of money selling atmosphere, while the food itself is nothing special. www.EltonCostello.com for more music. Also available at the ITUNES music store.
Lyrics
For $1,000 a plate. You get candles and fine drapes. In a room so dark you can't see. The food you're gettin' we couldn't give away for free. It's about presentation. Tiny portions. Combinations that are strange and creative. I'm a world famous chef. If I ain't hit your town it's next. If you ain't heard of me yet, advertising takes care of it. My cookbook hits the press the end of August. Try my prunes with angel hair and asparagus. It's my most famous dish. For only 10 grand i'll cook you breakfast in your bed. Chocolate covered onions with a mayonaise spread. If you're entertaining frozen dinners help out in a pinch. For $59.96 you get food worth 23 cents. I'm a world famous chef. If I ain't hit your town it's next. If you ain't heard of me yet, advertising takes care of it. My cookbook hits the press the end of August. Try my prunes with angel hair and asparagus. It's my most famous dish. I'm cooking for the queen and the king tonite. You see people will buy anything if it has the right price. I'm a world famous chef. If I ain't hit your town it's next. If you ain't heard of me yet, advertising takes care of it. My cookbook hits the press the end of August. Try my prunes with angel hair and asparagus. It's my most famous dish. I'm world famous. I'm a world famous chef. If I ain't hit your town it's next. You best clear your plate of the vegetables they are the best. From deep in the forest. Watch yourself. Put a napkin on your chest.
