Every time I cook, look like you can't get enough
Fix you a pot of soup and make you drink it up
So keep on a-eating
Oh, keep on a-eating
Keep on eating, baby, till you get enough

You don't like nobody's cooking but mine
Get up in the morning and fix you a tenderloin
So keep on a-eating
Oh, keep on a-eating
Keep on eating, baby, till you get enough

Don't tell nobody that I tried to be tough
I just got a man so hard to fill up
So keep on a-eating
Oh, keep on a-eating
Keep on eating, baby, till you get enough

(spoken:
Oh, play it now, Mr. Charlie
Yes, man! Just keep on eating
You'll get through it someday)

I know you're crazy about your oysters and your shrimp and crab
Take you around the corner and give you a chance to grab
So keep on a-eating
Oh, keep on a-eating
Keep on eating, baby, till you get enough

I've cooked and cooked till I done got tired
Can't fill you up off of my fried apple pie
So keep on a-eating
Oh, keep on a-eating
Keep on eating, baby, till you get enough

I know you got a bad cold and you can't smell
I ain't gonna give you something that I can't sell
So keep on a-eating
Oh, keep on a-eating
Keep on eating, baby, till you get enough
