ďWhy canít you cook like Mother?Ē
Asked the husband of his wife.
ďShe fixed the best food I have
Ever tasted in my life.
Her biscuits are so fluffy
And her homemade jamís a treat.
Her black-eyed peas and ham hock
Is a dish that CANíT be beat.Ē
ďWhy canít you be like Father?Ē
Asked the young wife of her mate.
ďHe was so very tactful
And that is a LOVELY trait.
"I CANíT cook like your Mother
And thatís all there is to that.
If you think her cookingís better,
Well, then, honey, hereís your hat.Ē
Iíd like to tell you something;
Itís some wisdom Iíve accrued.
Iíve had to learn the hard way
When it comes to fixing food.
Iíve got some good advice for you;
It only takes a minute:
Itís not so much how GOOD it tastes
As how much LOVE went in it.
