Cooked, cooked, cooked, cooked in the morning
And I cooked, cooked, cooked through all the night
Cooked, cooked, cooked in the evening, boy
And it don't seem to work out all right
Work now my baby, baby come close
And cook, cook, cook, cook, cook, cook, all right

Bad, bad, bad loving, baby
And I lay down my love all right
And I ain't had a spoiled sod and I ain't much to imagine
And I'll give it up all right
Find, find a cook
And he'll cook, cook for us every night

Work, work, work till the morning
Work, work, work till the night
Work, work, work in the kitchen
And it'll make it come out all right
Well I don't want to live like a poor man
And work, work, work, work every night

Uh, uh... uh-huh...
Uh... uh, uh...
Worked, worked, worked till the morning
And I cooked, cooked till late at night
(...) along till the morning when I'm
Worried, worried, worried, worried every night
