Steve Key: Songs/Lyrics

Oat Bran Muffins

(Steve Key)
May 31, 2012
Steve Key Songs (BMI)
Originally released on "House Blend" (2003). Performed at a house concert in Maryland, May 2002; recorded and mixed by Heidi Gerber.

First song of mine to be recorded by someone other than me! Greg Trafidlo & Laura Pole (of the Roanoke VA area) recorded it twice: on their 1992 CD, "Read My Heart to Me" and a later CD made for their Caregiver Programs entitled, "To Those Who Feel".
Honey brew up some coffee, I got a new treat for you
It's gonna make our lovin' last, our hearts will beat like new

It's Oat Bran Muffins, Oat Bran Muffins
Put 'em in the oven for life-long lovin'
Oat Bran Muffins

I used to be a ham-and-cheese omelette man
With a bagel and cream cheese too
But if you wanna have fun past 31
Then you gotta make a change or two

So toss out that tub of butter
T-Bone steak and eggs
Whip up the bran and the eggbeaters
Honey don't make me beg... just give me those

Oat Bran Muffins, Oat Bran Muffins
Put 'em in the oven for life-long lovin'
Oat Bran Muffins

Now honey I know that a muffin alone
Won't keep our doctor away
So here's my solution: let's join the revolution
And we'll start a "bran" new day

We'll start with Oat Bran Crunch for breakfast
Then it's Oat Bran bread at noon
We'll have Oat Bran Tofu meatless loaf
And a bathroom built for two... just give me some

Oat Bran Muffins, Oat Bran Muffins
Put 'em in the oven for life-long lovin'
Oat Bran Muffins

(spoken bit about Elvis and Oat Bran)

I don't worry at all 'cause it lowers my cho-les-ter-ol
