    Lyrics

    (E.M. Bartlett)

    When I was a little boy around the table at home
    I remember very well when company would come
    I would have to be right still until the whole crowd ate
    My mama always said to me Jim take a tater and wait.

    Now taters never did taste good with chicken on a plate
    But I had to eat 'em just the same
    That is why I look so bad and have these puny ways
    Because I always had to take an old cold tater and wait.

    --- Instrumental ---

    And then the preachers they would come to stay awhile with us
    I would have to slip around and raise a little fuss
    In fear that I will spill the beans or break a china plate
    My mama always said to me Jim take a tater and wait.

    Now taters never did taste good with chicken on a plate
    But I had to eat 'em just the same
    That is why I look so bad and have these puny ways
    Because I always had to take an old cold tater and wait.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Well, I thought that I'd starve to death before my time would come
    All that chicken they would eat and just leave me the bun
    The feet and neck were all that's left upon the china plate
    It makes you pretty darn weak to take an old cold tater and wait.

    Well, taters never did taste good with chicken on a plate
    But I had to eat 'em just the same
    That is why I look so bad and have these puny ways
    Because I always had to take an old cold tater and wait...
