    Look, if you had... mom's spaghetti... would you eat it with hot dogs or with ketchup? Me? I will have both... yo...
    (verse 1)
    his palms are sweaty
    from boiling pasta
    all day he's ready
    to eat his mom's spaghetti
    but he keeps on forghetti
    what recipe did it go last time
    his mom, said that he
    will be another failure so what did he?
    grabbed another plate and get it
    water and pasta boil it with fire
    add some ketchup and hot dogs
    cooking, not breaking a single culinary law, nothings going to be same as before
    he's ready to walk out of that door
    the whole world is yours
    is the message that kept him going for so long now...
    Lose yourself in this cooking
    the music, its a movement
    to prepare these spaghetti yo
    but it only takes one time
    to fuck it all up so never forget what told you your mom
