The thread on "This is a song for all the good people" mentioned this song, which I heard Ken Hicks sing 25 years ago. I understand that he wrote it.

Who's Gonna Steal The Peanut Butter

Looking back at my hard luck days
I really do have to laugh.
Singing in bars for twenty five dollars
And spending it all on drafts.
We were hungry, hard luck heroes
Trying hard to stay alive.
We'd go down to the corner grocery
And this is how we'd survive

Who's gonna steal the peanut butter
I'll steal the can of sardines.
Running up and down the aisle of the mini-mart
Sticking food in our jeans.
We never took more than we could eat
There was plenty left on the rack.
We both swore that if we ever got rich
We would pay the mini-mart back
Yes sir, yes sir,
We would pay the mini-mart back.

It was a two-man operation
We had it all down by rote.
Ricky would watch that big round mirror
And I'd fill up my coat.
Then we'd head for the check-out counter
With a lemon and a bottle of beer
Into the car and go on home
Suppertime's getting near.


I guess every good picker's had hard-luck days
I know I've had my share.
It sure is funny to look back now
But I don't want to go back there!
So every time I go to the store
I take a little, but not much.
Cause you never can tell when hard times will hit you
And I don't want to lose my touch!

Ken sang it, but he didn't write it. Jimmy Buffett did. And in performance, at least, Ken so credited it.
