HAM AND EGGS (John Martin - 1917) When the boarders hear the dinner bell And gather ’round the table They eat whatever they are served As fast as they are able Roast beef, veal, or corn beef hash Stewed prunes and a cup of tea Is the bill of fare at the boarding house But here’s the bill for me H-A-M and eggs, there’s nothing in the world can beat They go to the spot whenever I long for something good to eat The Dutchman loves his sauerkraut and the Frenchman fried frogs legs But when I’m hungry, what I want is H-A-M and eggs When I take my girl to a swell cafe And ask, “What are you eating?” She answers, “Oysters and Champagne” Lord, how my heart starts beating I’ve just got one dollar bill And I’m in an awful stew So I tell the waiter to bring us on Some ham and eggs for two H-A-M and eggs, there’s nothing in the world can beat They go to the spot whenever I long for something good to eat The Dutchman loves his sauerkraut and the Frenchman fried frogs legs But when I’m hungry, what I want is H-A-M and eggs My mother in law was very sick We thought that she was dying And everybody in the room Except for me was crying But she’s up and ’round today Strong as ever on her legs For they brought her back from the very grave With a dish of ham and eggs H-A-M and eggs, there’s nothing in the world can beat They go to the spot whenever I long for something good to eat The Dutchman loves his sauerkraut and the Frenchman fried frogs legs But when I’m hungry, what I want is H-A-M and eggs When I got married years ago My wife was quite good looking But we were nearly starved because She was no good at cooking So I bought some ham and eggs Put ‘em on the frying pan >From that day all my trouble ceased And I’m a happy man H-A-M and eggs, there’s nothing in the world can beat They go to the spot whenever I long for something good to eat The Dutchman loves his sauerkraut and the Frenchman fried frogs legs But when I’m hungry, what I want is H-A-M and eggs (Contributed by Mel Priddle - August 2013)
