In the first line "hey baby I hear the blues a'callin" your interpretation was that Frasier has the blues and he's taking calls. However, I believe that Frasier has the blues because of the "Tossed Salads and scrambled eggs" who are calling him...otherwise it sounds dead on!

These lyrics, in the long tradition of the Blues, are filled with sexual innuendo. In the canon of the Blues, for example, "peaches" are not a fruit, nor is a lemon when a woman is asked to "squeeze my lemon 'til the juice runs down my leg". And a jellyroll certainly does not refer to a pastry. (the list of Black/ Southern idiom goes on and on).

 In this case, "tossed salad" has a clear sexual connotation, as does "scrambled eggs". And a bit of research will reveal the meaning of "pegging" (as in "baby I've got you pegged".)

No one day I had tossed salad and scrambled eggs for lunch and got diarrhea, so they were 'calling again'.

I'm sure people are going to think I'm being facetious, but please hear me through.



I'm pretty certain the opening theme is about being upset and getting "The blues" from having indigestion. The line "But I don't know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs, they're calling again" can be interpreted as Frasier having an upset stomach from the food he ate and he feels it "calling again" which could of course mean that he needs to use the restroom and evacuate.

To me it's always been a song about the frustrations of being a music composer.  If you've ever been up at 2:00 a.m. trying to figure out a chordal sequence in a song, and gotten frustrated, returning to the piano again and again to figure it out, you'll know what I mean.

TOSS SALAD AND SCRAMBLED EGGS IS EXAXTLY WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS..WHAT YOU WOULD SEE IF YOU DID INDEED TOSS SOMEONE'S SALAD, AS KELSIE IS AT LEAST MULTI SEXUAL. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE CON ..IT'S TOTALLY PERV SEX ACTION WITH A HAPPY ENDING WITH THOSE EGGS ! "I got you pegged' , means "don't even try to put one over on anyone, as I see what kind of guy that you are, you are not fooling anyone ! When the urge to be freaky starts calling, it's time to answer it, that is what this song is all about !
