Nat King Cole - The Frim Fram Sauce Lyrics




I don't want French fried potatoes,
Red ripe tomatoes,
I'm never satisfied.
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side.

I don't want pork chops and bacon,
That won't awaken
My appetite inside.
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side.

Now a persons really got to eat
And a person should eat right.
Five will get you ten
I'm gonna feed myself right tonight.

I don't want fish cakes and rye bread,
You heard what I said.
Waiter, please serve mine fried
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side.

Now a persons really got to eat
And a person should eat right.
Five will get you ten
I'm gonna feed myself right tonight.

I don't want fish cakes and rye bread,
You heard what I said.
Waiter, please serve mine fried
I want the frim fram sauce with the Ausen fay
With chafafa on the side.

I want the frim fram sauce with the ausen fay
with cha fafa, cha fafa, cha fafa, on the side
P-LEAZZZE!

    Who had a better voice, and jazz trio than Nat King Cole? Brilliant.

    Now if you don't have it, just bring me check for the water. :D :D :D

  3. Jeferson Mariano Silva

    I don't want french fried potatoes, red ripe tomatoes
    I'm never satisfied
    I want the frim fram sauce
    With oss-en-fay with sha fafa on the side

    I don't want pork chops and bacon
    That won't awaken, my appetite inside
    I want the frim fram sauce
    With oss-en-fay with sha fafa on the side

    Well you know a girl
    She really got to eat
    And a girl she should eat right
    Five will get you ten
    I'm going to feed myself right tonight

    I don't want fish cakes and rye bread
    You heard what I said
    Waiter please, I want mine fried
    I want the frim fram sauce
    With oss-en-fay with sha fafa on the side

  4. PunchBrother

    Am I the only person that hears "With 'chelle Pfeiffer on the side?"

    kenny lewis

    I do too

  5. layde1

    I always thought I had misheard the words but he really is singing them. Great tune.

  6. KnocksX

    Water will do fine, thanks.

  7. Susan Gagliano

    ANYTHING the KING did had style, pure style!!! Great song too!!!

  8. Tony Calandrino

    I knew about Frim Fram Sauce when I was a baby!

  9. Marion Toffan

    The frim - fram sauce still alludes me - but the easant-fay may be pheasant in Pig - English ( where the first syllable goes to the end with an aye addition.And thanks to the Scrabble Dictionary - schav - a chilled soup with farfalle - bow tie shaped pasta.  So shav-farfalle : sounds delicious - but I would pass on the pheasant. M.

    Marion Toffan

    Oops I forgot to close my bracket. Further perhaps frim-fram  sauce is not a sauce - back in the 60's jazz musicians referred to booze as sauce. So if eating Pheasant, Farfelle with chilled Soup (Schav) .... Pimm's with raspberries in the drink might just finish the ticket : Frim-fram.I'm  thinking that fram refers to French noun framboise - raspberry. M.

    Serge Stodolnik

    Marion Toffan
    All that stuff means absolutely NOTHING!
    The whole song is about some cheap poser who comes to a fancy, expensive restaurant desperately trying to look like a hot shot, high roller, big spender, etc... who in reality has no money and can not order anything there.
    So he starts making up all kinds of nonsense that doesn't exists knowing that he won't get it and won't have to pay for it.....
    Pay attention to the the last phrase of the song:
    "If you don't have it, just bring me a check for the water!"

    Vince Q

    Exactly right!  Well done, Serge.

  10. margaretsville

    My dad used to always sing this when I was a kid.

  11. spencer

    Michelle Pfeiffer on the side

  12. mark kenneally

    If Nat King Cole had said covfefe, I'd be ok with it.

  13. Jeff Albert

    Novelty song or not, this is one of the smoothest jazz vocals ever. This song just flies along at about 55 mph, but in style. It showcases NKC's vocals and stylish delivery, which while it made him acceptable to a wider audience never betrayed his roots.

  14. Gerald Johnson

    Diane Krall obviously knows the value of this song and has done and awesome version that I'm sure Nat King Cole would approve of, check it here Diana Krall - Frim Fram Sauce (Live)

    Wayne Swickley

    You got that right.  The Diana Krall video is a joy to see and hear.

    Fenix Hayden

    @DaPaul London Totally agreee - Diana Krall does an awesome version. Love it!

    zu0832

    DaPaul London She couldn't shine Nat' s shoes singing or playing piano. Nat's got the groove!

    AegisEpoch

    most definitely. the song in general is pretty charming.

  30. DaPaul London

    Just a bit of information to anyone who may think this song does not make sense historically: 'A novelty song is a comical or nonsensical song, performed principally for its comical effect. Humorous songs, or those containing humorous elements, are not necessarily novelty songs. The term arose in Tin Pan Alley to describe one of the major divisions of popular music. The other two divisions were ballads and dance music. Novelty songs achieved great popularity during the 1920s and 1930s.' Please don't say something is 'dumb' just because you don't understand it or havn't taken the time to do your research. Many thanks.

  31. Creampie Garry

    but good singing

  32. Chris Claypool

    Does anyone know what 5 will get you 10 mean?????

    hearttoheart4me

    That's the way they used to say a sure bet. $5 will get you $10

    Soney Liston

    5/1 bet

    molesaver

    I'll lay you 8 to five these guys have it right. (If you have what you think is a sure bet you offer 'odds' to make it attractive for others to participate.)

  33. No Vin

    LiQuori Hughes
