If you want things that way

I make Irish Soda Bread and send it to a friend each year for his birthday.  He  , I think jokingly, suggested that I write a song about Irish Soda Bread. And so I did. I have no idea who the narrator is, it is not me :)


It’s cold outside tonight, but my Love, that’s alright.
We don’t need a fire to keep us warm
when we’re in each other’s arms.
Now you’ve fallen fast asleep
after making love so sweet
I’ll just slip away
it’s time to start the day.


Get out the milk and eggs,
the butter and flour too,
the raisins and all the other things that make this taste so good.
I’ll turn on the oven with all my love
because this is for you.
While you’re in my bed,
I’ll make Irish Soda Bread.


The kitchen smells so nice and I don’t have to think twice,
waiting for the bell to ring  I know it’s all the little things
that make a life worthwhile. That makes you stop and smile.
And when you pull me close to you there’s not much I wouldn’t do
to keep you in my bed, I’ll make Irish Soda Bread.


They say you can’t live on love - I tried it and I know.
I lost some weight and had to buy new clothes
But I never feel like eating a thing, I want to spin around and sing
a silly song that’s in my head about Irish Soda Bread


Get out the milk and eggs,
the butter and flour, too,
the raisins and all the other things that make this taste so good
I’ll turn on the oven with all my love
Because this is for you;
While you’re in my bed,
I’ll make Irish Soda Bread.
