about

For Kim Johnson and her grandmother Mimi, and all the cooking they did together.

lyrics

Remember, 10 years old, I'd be in your kitchen
You'd say, "Try this one-" you always knew just which one

I'd help; if something broke, you'd give me another try
Evenings, afterwards, you would wash and I would dry, and

You (it's thanks to you) never went wrong
(So much I learned from you)
Though the world (that's what you do)
Kept moving on (you make things turn out OK)
I'll (remember you) make sure they know
(And I'll tell everybody)
How to make them like you did so long ago

Junior year, I called you for a recipe for dinner
You said, "Try this one - it's sure to be a winner!"

All my friends could not believe how great it all turned out
And all year, afterwards, it was all they talked about, 'cause

You (it's thanks to you) never went wrong
(So much I learned from you)
Though the world (that's what you do)
Kept moving on (you make things turn out OK)
I'll (remember you) make sure they know
(And I'll tell everybody)
How to make them like you did so long ago

Time has flown so fast - now I've got my own help.
I'll say, "try this one," and see you in my grown self

My heart is something broke since we said our goodbye
But evenings, my little one, I will wash and she will dry, 'cause

You (it's thanks to you) never went wrong
(So much I learned from you)
And the world (that's what you do)
Keeps moving on (you make things turn out OK)
I'll (remember you) make sure they know
(And I'll tell everybody)
How to make them like you did so long ago
