A dream come true

The American Dream remains alive

A dream come true

With apron tied and heartbeat racing

I pass the heat lamps and smell of bacon

I can't believe this dream came true

In a land so far, so different, so new

My new kitchen in my new place

The hustle and bustle, a fragrant maze

These new spices, tools, and cuts

Bring my home dishes to a new light

I work with passion

my dishes take flight

to shock and awe

the palettes that sit here tonight

We work hard, the team and I

the knifes are sharp and heat is high

but I pinch myself at every chance

cause I'm a chef in this dream land
