Story

Glenn is my cousin. Joe (now my sweetie) hates this song. I found this out after I released "Her Fabulous Debut," which had this song in a jug band version near the end of the CD. (This is the only track from the 1998 Atlanta sessions that survived the cut). Once I learned Joe hated this song, I made sure to play it on any show we shared, and to include it in my next CD- an extended live solo version. In 2006, Joe proposed to me while wearing a penguin suit, while I was performing this song. I'm starting to think it's really his favorite song that I sing, and he's just using reverse psychology.

Lyrics

Well I almost decided to marry you But that ain't the right thing for me to do I don't love ya darlin’ can't you see It's the Toasted Chicken Sandwich and the big glass of sweet ice tea All those nights I dated you at your home It wasn't 'cause I didn't wanna be alone It's because of those great snacks you fixed for me Like a toasted chicken sandwich and a big glass of sweet ice tea I was always sweet I was never rude But before I'd kiss you I'd ask for food You'd buzz through the kitchen like a bumblebee And fix a Toasted Chicken Sandwich and a big glass of sweet ice tea You thought your food was the key to my heart Now I realize you're kinda smart There's only one way to marry me That's a Toasted Chicken Sandwich and a big glass of sweet ice tea You ain't that good lookin' But I like your cookin' Get into that kitchen Bring me some chicken You're makin' me high When I look at that thigh Of a Toasted Chicken Sandwich A finger lickin' sandwich Toasted Chicken Sandwich and a big glass of sweet ice tea Toasted Chicken Sandwich and a big glass of sweet ice tea Toasted Chicken Sandwich and a big glass of sweet ice tea
