PUT ANOTHER LOG ON THE FIRE
Put another log on the fire.
Cook me up some bacon and some beans.

And go out to the car and change the tire.
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!
SHELDON SILVERSTEIN WROTE THE LYRICS AND MUSIC FOR
"PUT ANOTHER LOG ON THE FIRE"  IN 1974. 

THAT SAME YEAR, TOMPALL GLASER RECORDED THIS SASSY LITTLE SONG THAT WAS
A COUNTRY MUSIC HIT.

"COOK ME UP SOME BACON AND SOME BEANS"  BECAME A FAVORITE PHRASE IN HOUSEHOLDS!

Now don't I let you wash the car on Sunday?
Don't I warn you when you're gettin fat?

Ain't I a-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...
'Cus I like you when you're sweet...
And you know it ain't feminine to fight.
