A Love Story (a la Taylor Swift)

Tortilla Espanola in OviedoWe were both in Madrid when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I’m sitting there
On a veranda in summer air
See the people, the tables, and all the pintxos
See you stand out among the spread
And I say, “Prendo tener”
Little did I care

That you were Tortilla Española, the one I heard about
And my stomach said, “stay away from all that egg”
And I was running to the counter
Begging you please come to my table, and I said

Tortilla Espanola con queso

Tortilla Española, join me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is eat
You’ll be the main course and I’ll be the diner
It’s a love story, Tortilla just say “Yes”

So I sneak around Madrid to see you
Trying to spot our next meet
Wondering if there’s more to you than potato and egg
And then I knew, of course it must be true

‘Cause you were Tortilla Española, I was a hungry tourist
And my partner said, “Where else shall we try it”
You were everything to me now I’m begging you
Please come to Philly

Tortilla, with all your creamy centers and sautéed onions
The occasional cheese, spinach, or chorizo
I’ll be waiting, all you need to do is show
You’ll be the main course and I’ll be the diner
It’s a food love story, Tortilla just say “Yes”
