Chorus:
Chicken soup is nice.
You can cook it with noodles; you can add lots of spice
It’ll warm your soul, cure the common cold
Chicken soup is nice
My grandmother taught me how to cook
What I learned can’t be found in a book
A little of this and a little of that
Don’t forget the butter, use lots of fat

Chorus:
My grandmother never used a recipe
Never followed the rules, she did as she pleased
There’s no kind of chemistry that can recreate
The love that’s found in every plate

Chorus:

My grandmother taught me to use my senses
To smell, to taste, to not be defensive
Though she’s gone she still lives on
In this food and in this song

Chorus:
