Lyrics

Potatoes are cheaper
Tomatoes are cheaper
Now's the time
To fall in love

Why, the butcher, the baker,
And the candlestick maker
All gave their price
A downward shove

bzzzz ... boom

Grab yourself someone
To fry your eggs and bacon
Why, she can live just like a queen
On what you're makin'

'Cause this and that's a lot cheaper
And a flat's a lot cheaper
So, Honey, now's the time
To fall in love

(British English)

Potatoes are reduced in price
Tomatoes cost considerably less
Now's the time
To jolly well, ah, fall in love

There's many a spinster
In good old Westminster
Who's looking for
A blooming turtle dove, ah, ah, ah, ah

In America they drink
This beastly coffee
Wed an English lass
And 'ave your tea and toffee

King George expects every marriage
To fill up a carriage
So, now's the time
To jolly well fall in love
