It Only Takes a Taste lyrics

It Only Takes a Taste

Dr. Pomatter (spoken):
You know what's kind of funny?
Just seeing you sitting here all by yourself in your uniform.

Dr. Pomatter (singing):
You remind me of a girl i once knew.
God, by now she's well in middle age.
Probably 41. 42.

Jenna (spoken):
Huh. Thank you?

Dr. Pomatter (spoken):
What? Oh my god! No! No! No! No!

Dr. Pomatter:
She was a waitress at a shop i used to frequent quite a lot.
Nice teeth and small hands
And snuck me goodies i couldn't afford then.
But she was sweet too.
Reminds me of you

Jenna (spoken):
Hmm. Oh well no one ever really notices me that way so...

Dr. Pomatter (spoken):
Somebody did right?

Jenna (spoken):
Hmm?

Dr. Pomatter (spoken):
Yah, because you have th... The baby.

Dr. Pomatter:
She'd bake the pies fresh every day

Dr. Pomatter (spoken):
Like you i guess,

Dr. Pomatter:
But i must say
If pies were books yours would be shakespeare's letters.
You remind me of her,
But better

It only takes a taste when it's something special.
It only takes a taste when you know it's good.
Sometimes one bite is more than enough
To know you want more of the thing you just got a taste of.

Jenna: that reminds me of a thing we would say.
Me and my mamma in the kitchen when we'd bake.
She's say "jenna, you can tell the whole story with a taste."

Dr. Pomatter (spoken):
Yah.

Dr. Pomatter:
No, that's exactly what i mean.
I swear that as those flavors mixed and melted
I could hear the sirens sing.
It was truly something special.
One taste and i want the whole thing.

I must say it felt like i was carried away.
Intoxicated.
Made me escape the room i was in.
I can't help but wonder
How your hand must have felt making that masterful thing.

Jenna:
Just one bite caused all that wondering.

Dr. Pomatter:
It only takes a taste

Both:
It only takes a taste when you know it's good.
Sometimes one bite is more than enough.
To know you want more of the thing you just got a taste of.
