The Burger Connection

Thorin N. Tatge

(To “The Rainbow Connection” by Kenny Ascher and Paul Williams)

Why are there so many puns about burgers

and what you serve on the side?

Burgers are classic but also creative

Burgers have nothing to hide

Lots of folks think that you can't just serve burgers

I know they're wrong; wait and see

Someday we'll find it—the burger connection

The broilers, the grillers, and me

When your heart's heavy, a song can refresh it

Linda is great that way

And because we have children, we don't need employees

If only they'd do what I say!

I know my customers yearn for me somewhere

They just have to walk by and see

Someday they'll find it—the burger connection

The bar joes, the foodies, and me

(When they bite into that beef

They'll probably think that it's magic)

Have you been half drunk, and have you heard voices?

I've heard things saying my name.

Things in the kitchen just want to be useful

I'll put them over the flame!

Cooking utensils are focused, yet gentle

They're better than people that way

Someday we'll find it—the burger connection

If we “Don't Get Carrot Away!”
