"It Only Takes a Taste" is a song from the musical "Waitress" performed by Drew Gehling (Dr. Pomatter) and Jessie Mueller (Jenna). Music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles.

Dr. Pomatter (spoken): You know what's kind of funny?
Just seeing you sitting here all by yourself in your uniform.

Dr. Pomatter (singing): YOU REMIND ME OF A GIRL I ONCE KNEW.
GOD, BY NOW SHE'S WELL IN MIDDLE AGE.
PROBABLY 41. 42.

Jenna (spoken): Huh. Thank you?

Dr. Pomatter (spoken): What? OH MY GOD! NO! NO! NO! NO!

Dr. Pomatter: SHE WAS A WAITRESS AT A SHOP I USED TO FREQUENT QUITE A LOT.
NICE TEETH AND SMALL HANDS
AND SNUCK ME GOODIES I COULDN'T AFFORD THEN.
BUT SHE WAS SWEET TOO.
REMINDS ME OF YOU

Jenna (spoken): Hmm. Oh well no one ever really notices me that way so...

Dr. Pomatter (spoken): Somebody did right?

Jenna (spoken): Hmm?

Dr. Pomatter (spoken): Yah, because you have th... the baby.

Dr. Pomatter: SHE'D BAKE THE PIES FRESH EVERY DAY

Dr. Pomatter (spoken): Like you I guess,

Dr. Pomatter: BUT I MUST SAY
IF PIES WERE BOOKS YOURS WOULD BE SHAKESPEARE'S LETTERS.
YOU REMIND ME OF HER,
BUT BETTER

IT ONLY TAKES A TASTE WHEN IT'S SOMETHING SPECIAL.
IT ONLY TAKES A TASTE WHEN YOU KNOW IT'S GOOD.
SOMETIMES ONE BITE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH
TO KNOW YOU WANT MORE OF THE THING YOU JUST GOT A TASTE OF.

Jenna: THAT REMINDS ME OF A THING WE WOULD SAY.
ME AND MY MAMMA IN THE KITCHEN WHEN WE'D BAKE.
SHE'S SAY "JENNA, YOU CAN TELL THE WHOLE STORY WITH A TASTE."

Dr. Pomatter (spoken): Yah.

Dr. Pomatter: NO, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN.
I SWEAR THAT AS THOSE FLAVORS MIXED AND MELTED
I COULD HEAR THE SIRENS SING.
IT WAS TRULY SOMETHING SPECIAL.
ONE TASTE AND I WANT THE WHOLE THING.

I MUST SAY IT FELT LIKE I WAS CARRIED AWAY.
INTOXICATED.
MADE ME ESCAPE THE ROOM I WAS IN.
I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER
HOW YOUR HAND MUST HAVE FELT MAKING THAT MASTERFUL THING.

Jenna: JUST ONE BITE CAUSED ALL THAT WONDERING.

Dr. Pomatter: IT ONLY TAKES A TASTE

BOTH: IT ONLY TAKES A TASTE WHEN YOU KNOW IT'S GOOD.
SOMETIMES ONE BITE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH.
TO KNOW YOU WANT MORE OF THE THING YOU JUST GOT A TASTE OF.
