I'm late for dinner but look who's on the menu
Cause when I'm in a hurry nothing tastes as good as you do
Whisper in my ear all your culinary wishes
Next thing you know you're washing the dishes
Your table is ready, follow me
I'm happy to seat you

Slices of you
I'd really like another slice of you
(Slices of you)
That's so nice of you
I'd really like another slice of you
That's so nice of you
(Slices of you)
I'd really like another slice or two
(Slices of you)
I'd really like another slice of you

I'm late for dinner but look who's on the menu
Cause when I get a table you know damn well I get a table for two
Preheat the oven so the cooking is best
I trained at the very best kitchens of France
My service is slow and I hope this doesn't offend you

Slices of you
I'd really like another slice of you
(Slices of you)
That's so nice of you
I'd really like another slice of you
That's so nice of you
(Slices of you)
I'd really like another slice or two
(Slices of you)
I'd really like another slice of you

[spoken]
And everywhere I go
People ask me, Valentine
What's your recipe for love?
My answer's always the same
Cook the hell out of it
And slice it!

If music be the food of love, play on
But I'm really too hungry for just one song
And so I put the final plea to you
I'd really like another slice of you
That's so nice of you
(Slices of you)
I'd really like another slice of you
(Slices of you)
I'd really like another slice of you

[fade out]
I'm late for dinner but look who's on the menu
Cause when I'm in a hurry nothing tastes as good as you do
I'm late for dinner but look who's on the menu
Cause when I'm in a hurry nothing tastes as good as you do
I'm late for dinner but look who's on the menu

    General CommentI think it is about a sex orientated relationship, where he is "abusing" her for his wish to f***.

    "I'm late for dinner but look who's on the menu
    'Cos when I'm in a hurry nothing tastes as good as you do"
    He is late, so he does not have to come in time.
    He is in a hurry, so it is kind of a "quickie"

    "Whisper in my ear all your culinary wishes
    Next thing you know you're washing the dishes"
    She wants more than this or wants to say what is to be done but in the end he will always be the one who commands.

    "Your table is ready for me
    I'm happy to seat you"
    Especially the second line should be clear.

    "I trained at the very best kitchens in france
    My service is slow and I hope this doesn't offend you"
    maybe a reference to French kissing or his style of flirting or something
    and the second line is maybe about his service being long and slow ^^


    "If music be the food of love, play on
    But I'm really too hungry for just one song"
    So he wants always more

    Some things don't fit in, but it is the only option I can think of.

    General CommentI cannot figure out if this song is about sex or cannibalism. Given that it's Electric Six, I'd say sex.

    General CommentDefinitely about sex (oral sex in particular), but I disagree with Shikayama.
    I think it's just hilarious innuendo.
