Hot Potatoes

.

My baby woke me up this mornin'

She said get down that labour exchange,

And if you don't come home with a job son,

You'll get no dinner to-day.

You gotta secure me a weekly workin' wage.

You'll get no more fancy cookin',

You'll get no more apple pie,

You'll just get those plain hot potatoes

To satisfy your appetite.

.

La la la la la la Potatoes,

Boiled, French fried, any old way that you wanna decide.

Hot potatoes, yeh,

I want your lovin' every single day.

.

I said I don't need your fancy cooking,

I like the simple things in life,

Just give me those plain hot potatoes

And I'll be well satisfied,

They'll satisfy my appetite.

.

La la la la la la Potatoes,

Boiled, French fried, any old way that you wanna decide.

Hot potatoes, yeh,

I want your lovin' 60 minutes an hour,

I want your lovin' 24 hours a day,

I want your lovin' 7 days a week.

Yeh, yeh, oh yeh.

I want your love, I need your love,

But all I get is hot potatoes

When I come home late at night

To satisfy my appetite.

.

Don't give me no more potatoes,

Boiled, French fried, any old way you wanna decide.

Hot potatoes,

I want your lovin' every single day.

I want your lovin'

.

La la la la la la Potatoes,

Boiled, French fried, any old way that you wanna decide.

Hot potatoes, Hot potatoes, yeh.
