Morimoto's the name
And I've served urchin roe and brains.
‘Til Kaga's challengers came, and I was under the gun again.
It was the middle of season five,
They were hungry, would the theme be alive?
I caught the stench, and my spirits fell,
It's a smell I remember oh so well.

The night Kaga brought the lutefisk down.
Was the Chairman unhinging?
The night Kaga brought the lutefisk down.
And all the tasters were cringing!
They went Blah, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah,
Blah-blah-blah-blah, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.

Back at my stove Ohta asked me,
What would my strategy be?
Stir fry or fricassee, or maybe smoked with tea?
Now I don't mind chopping gruel,
And I don't care that the tasters are fools.
Just eat what you like and leave the rest,
But they should never have made me prepare this mess.

The night Kaga brought the lutefisk down.
Was the Chairman unhinging?
The night Kaga brought the lutefisk down.
And all the tasters were cringing!
They went Blah, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah,
Blah-blah-blah-blah, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.

Like Michiba before me, I will work with lamb.
Unlike the Issei before me, I took a rebel stand.
At just 18 I went to New York,
Mixing Yankee food with sushi and pork.
I swear by the board below Flay's feet -
You can't raise a chef back up when he's in defeat!

The night Kaga brought the lutefisk down.
Was the Chairman unhinging?
The night Kaga brought the lutefisk down.
And all the tasters were cringing!
They went Blah, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah,
Blah-blah-blah-blah, blah-blah-blah-blah-blah.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
