Well lately I've been thinkin'
about some good home cookin',
just like that I haven't eaten'
in the longest time.
Now I like potato chips,
now please don't get me wrong.
But I havent tasted mama's rhubarb pie in so very long.

[Chorus]
Rhubarb pie, in the summer.
Rhubarb pie, made by my mother.
Nothing better in the winter,
than rhurbarb pie after dinner.

Twinkes may be better,
than a hole in the sweater,
and a hole in the sweater,
beats a poke in the eye.
If I had my choice,
I'd leave this gas station store.
And then I'd travel back in time,
and I'd sit down and have some more.

[Chorus]

Looking at the picture,
in the Sunday paper,
of the politician, he's talkn' to the press.
He looks like he's been eating lemons all his life.
Well I think mama's rhubarb pie
could save solve more problems overnight.

    My InterpretationThis song beneath the surface has a huge meaning. When you're in your dorm in college and grown up. You're missing something, something that you took for granted when you were a kid. And now you don't know if you can live without some of Mom's Rhubarb Pie.

    General CommentThe greatest meaning I could pull out of this---Mama's Rhubarb pie is really good!!! No, I'm just kidding. Maybe politicians are sour. Although that's quite a generalization, maybe... Ha ha ha... I love trying to pull meaning out of meaningless songs.

    General CommentIt's a fantastic song, but I really DO think the whole point is that rhubarb pie kicks ass and everyone just needs a bit of pie to be happy... YAY!

    General Commentdon't worry, ilovetorun. I know what it is. Ugly Day is the much better song, in my opinion.
