with deep apologies to Brother Ray Charles -

APPLIANCE TIME AGAIN
--------------------

[CHORUS]

It's appliance time again, the fridge is broken
Our old icebox ain't cooling anymore
Yesterday she threw the mayonnaise in the garbage
A pool of water lies beneath the door

[VERSE}

The crisper holds the lettuce and the vegies
The temperature has gotten mighty warm
Our box is living way beyond it's shelf life
We ain't chilling out the way we did before

[CHORUS]

The repair guy says the thermostat stopped working
The beer is warm, the food has started thawin'
Got to shop for a new refrigerator
After writing out the words to this sad song

[CHORUS]

Now they say AMANA's gonna need a woman
My gal says I'll give this brand a try
But if she fills our box of love with onions
I'll bow my head and slowly start to cry

[CHORUS]

Well it's cryin' time again look what she leaves me
A dead refrigerator and what's more
The appliance and these cryin' eyes are grieving
My babe walked out the house and slammed the door

[CHORUS]

A little research pointed me to -
Buck Owens - Crying Time Again (1964)

It was the flip side of 'Tiger by the Tail' but didn't climb the
charts until the Ray Charles recording (1967).

If I was a writer I could add a verse about the stove that was so slow that the 3 minute boiled egg still had raw bits after 10 mins so-called "boiling" ... (ps. they were not dunky bits eaten with toast fingers, they were raw!)

Thanks, voyage. I had never heard 'Crying Time' before, so now 'Appliance Time' is a lot funnier.
