Subject: Lyr Add: OUR COOK'S TATER PIE
Our Cook's Tater Pie

'Twas the crust of our Cook's Tater Pie:
'Twas a crust that no deck-hand would try;
In a fit of hate, they gave it the mate
And he ate it all up in one try!
Well, now he's an angel on high
If he only had wings he could fly
Still, that's what he got
When he ate all the lot
Of the crust of our Cook's Tater Pie!

Collected from former deckhand Bob Smith, Fleetwood

Sung by Dick Gillingham
