Put Another Log On The Fire
words and music by Shel Silverstein
Recorded by The Big Time (featuring Johnny Shiels)
1976 Hawk HASP385

 

Put another log on the fire,
Cook me up some bacon and some beans;
And go out to the car and change the tyre
Wash my socks and sew my old blue jeans.

Come on, baby, you can fill my pipe,
And then go fetch my slippers;
And boil me up another pot of tea
Then put another log on the fire, babe,
And come and tell me why you're leaving me.

Now don't I let you wash the car on Sunday?
Don't I warn you when you're gettin' fat?
Ain't I gonna take you fishin' with me someday?
Well, a man can't love a woman more than that.

Ain't I always nice to your kid sister?
Don't I take her driving every night?
So, sit here at my feet 'cos I like you when you're sweet,
And you know it ain't feminine to fight.

So, put another log on the fire,
Cook me up ...
(Original recording by Tompall Glazer, 1975)
