Heard a sermon, what a sermon
Preached by Parson Brown
Tell it to ya, tell it to ya
Told each mister, told each sister
Time to settle down
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Potatoes are cheaper, tomatoes are cheaper
Now’s the time to fall in love
Why, the butcher, the baker, the old candlestick maker
Gave their price a downward shove
Grab yourself someone to fry your eggs and bacon
She can live just like a queen on what you’re makin’
You’ll find in some kind o’ trouble
You’re better off double
Now’s the time to fall in love

[instrumental]

Sweets are much cheaper, movie seats are much cheaper
Now’s the time to fall in love
The talkies seem tender to make her surrender
You should take advantage of
When the pictures over, take her where it’s quiet
Just remember what the hero did and try it
You’re not a Coleman or Gable
But do what you’re able
Now’s the time to fall in love

Potatoes are dearer, tomatoes are dearer
But what’s that got to do with love
As long as you’ve got a shoulder
A shoulder to hold ‘er
She’ll know what you’re thinking of
If you’ve tried out ev’ry trick you know to win ‘er
Don’t you worry ’bout the cost of any dinner
Love may not be nutritious, but boy it’s delicious
Now’s the time to fall in love
