What if I baked potatoes?
What if I french fried onion rings? Oh…

What if I buttered bagels?
What if I smelled of sauerkraut? Oh…
And what if I got up early

And cooked 3 dozen hard-boiled eggs?
Would you stand beside me anyway?

And what if I chopped onions and cried?
And what if I had feelings I couldn’t hide?
And what if I gave you something extra on the side?

What if I sliced salami
When ham was what you had in mind? Oh…
What if you ordered turkey
But all I had was chicken breast? Oh…
And what if I brought home bacon
When all you wanted was a bouquet?
Would you still enjoy it anyway?

And what if I cut onions and cried?
And what if I had feelings I couldn’t hide?
And what if I gave you something extra on the side?
Something special you’d never tried?

What if I owned a deli…?
Oh….
