Song Meaning
Verse 1
Madam Buff's was quite deluxe
Servants by the score
Footmen at each door
Butlers and maids galore
Verse 2
But one day Sam, her kitchen man
Gave in his notice, he's through
She cried, "Oh Sam, don't go
It'll grieve me if you do"
Verse 3
I love his cabbage gravy, his hash
Crazy 'bout his succotash
I can't do without my kitchen man
Verse 4
Wild about his turnip top
Like the way he warms my chop
I can't do without my kitchen man
Verse 5
Anybody else can leave
And I would only laugh
But he means too much to me
And you ain't heard the half
Verse 6
Oh, his jelly roll is so nice and hot
Never fails to touch the spot
I can't do without my kitchen man
Verse 7
His frankfurters are oh so sweet
How I like his sausage meat
I can't do without my kitchen man
Verse 8
Oh, how that boy can open clam
No one else is can touch my ham
I can't do without my kitchen man
Verse 9
When I eat his doughnuts
All I leave is the hole
Any time he wants to
Why, he can use my sugar bowl
Verse 10
Oh, his baloney's really worth a try
Never fails to satisfy
I can't do without my kitchen man
