Cause making up some pastry
couldn't possibly be that hard.
She mixed and stirred ingredients
in a wash tub from the stable.

It must be from the wash tub
that she'd taken from the barn.
She filled the dough with berries,

the pies were set to bake,
the gas stove caught a whiskey scent
and exploded like a quake.
Granny never won that contest,
but that fact brought her no shame.
NASA bought the recipe
that rocketed her to fame.
