Put Another Log On The Fire

  • (Shel Silverstein)

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

    Don't I let you wash the car on Sunday
    Don't I warn you when you're getting fat
    Ain't I gonna take you fishing with me some day
    You know a man can't love a woman more than that
    Ain't I always nice to your kid sister
    And don't I take her driving every night
    Come and sit here by my feet 'cos' I love you when you're sweet
    And you know it isn't feminine to fight

    Repeat 1

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1997:] Shel DIDN'T write Put another Log on the Fire -- that's Tompall Glazer. (Dick Greenhaus,, 21 Aug)

  • [1998:] Tompall Glazer is a country singer/songwriter, one of the lesser known members of the "outlaws," a group which includes Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson, and which has avoided pop-jazz-new age tendencies in country music, preferring traditional harmonic structures and instrumentation. This totally off the top of my head description of the outlaws comes from occasional references I have seen and heard over the past 20 years, and for which I can produce no documentation. (BSeed,, 17 Sep)

  • [1999:] [...] registered as having been written by Shel (alone) and performed by Tompall Glazer. (Jeri,, 16 May)
