When you’re cooking in the kitchen,
You’re learning all the while —
To pour and measure, mix and stir
And sift flour into a pile.

Scrub your hands before you start
Then gather up the gear —
Like pots’n pans and measuring cups
That you use throughout the year.

The joy of cooking is something learned and shared
And it unites the young and the old
A lifelong love that can only be compared
To a treasure more precious than gold!
