When I was a little boy around the table at home.
I remember fairly 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 the 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.
