I CAN NEVER EAT HOME ANYMORE (Lee Pockriss / Paul Vance) The Detergents (sung) I'm gonna die if she don't learn how to cook Or I'm gonna run away... (spoken) Stop! (sung) Ah, you can never eat home anymore. (spoken) Listen, does this sound familiar? You wake up every morning With a hunger pain inside Your mother makes you breakfast But you wanna run and hide You sneak out of the back door And hang around the street You know it's time for dinner But you're afraid to go home and eat And that's called Hungry! Now my mom is a good mom to me she was a queen But I couldn't eat her cooking; It turned me sorta green I used to get so hungry How hungry could I get? And then, one day, a miracle: A luncheonette! And that's called Food! (sung) And he can never eat home anymore (spoken) Well my mom found out about it And I knew it hurt her so She came to me and pleaded And begged me not to go But I knew I had to do it Though she'd never understand And I left her cryin' in the kitchen With a chicken in her hand I can still hear her: (sung) I'll make you meatballs, nice and hot I'll make you chicken in the pot. (musical interlude) He can never eat home anymore (Why me???) (spoken) So she stayed there in that kitchen And it was always the same Each night she'd make those meatballs But I never came My mama grew so lonely that the angels heard her cry And they took her up to heaven To that lunchroom in the sky And that's called Sad (sung) And he can never eat home anymore.
