I spent all day long just slavin' in the kitchen 
I wanted everything to be just right 
Yeah, the table's dressed with all the fancy trimmin's

There's still lots of time after all he's always late 
When he's out with her he's never in a hurry 
So, I light a lonely candle and set his plate 

Cause tonight he's comin' home to the last supper 
He'll break the bread and drink his wine alone 
I know God will forgive me 
Cause he knows how much I've suffered 
Lord, I'd like to have a picture of the last supper
