"Hot Potatoes" as written by and Davies....
My baby woke me up this mornin'
She said get down that labor exchange,
And if you don't come home with a job son,
You'll get no dinner to-day.
You gotta secure me a weekly workin' wage.
You'll get no more fancy cookin',
You'll get no more apple pie,
You'll just get those plain hot potatoes
To satisfy your appetite.

La la la la la la Potatoes,
Boiled, French fried, any old way that you wanna decide.
Hot potatoes, yeh,
I want your lovin' every single day.

I said I don't need your fancy cooking,
I like the simple things in life,
Just give me those plain hot potatoes
And I'll be well satisfied,
They'll satisfy my appetite.

La la la la la la Potatoes,
Boiled, French fried, any old way that you wanna decide.
Hot potatoes, yeh,
I want your lovin' sixty minutes an hour,
I want your lovin' twenty four hours a day,
I want your lovin' seven days a week.
Yeh, yeh, oh yeh.
I want your love, I need your love,
But all I get is hot potatoes
When I come home late at night
To satisfy my appetite.

Don't give me no more potatoes,
Boiled, French fried, any old way you wanna decide.
Hot potatoes,
I want your lovin' every single day.
I want your lovin'

La la la la la la Potatoes,
Boiled, French fried, any old way that you wanna decide.
Hot potatoes, Hot potatoes, yeh.

    General CommentI think this song is about the Beatles, specifically about George Harrison.

    With Harrison's "My sweet lord" in mind...

    It think both songs are beautiful, but I prefer "Hot potatoes" actually, but I don't idolize the Beatles.

    I know many think Ray Davies is an egotiscial maniac, but I have the exact opposite impression of him.

    Ray is very honest about his faults, and he even makes much fun of it.

    I'd like to see someone like George Harrison making fun of his eccentric and delusional "spiritual" self, even at the expense of loosing fans.
