First came the pot – 1956

First came the pot. It got hotter, not colder,
So somebody had to invent the pot-holder.

If left on the fire, the pot-holder would smoulder
So I’m giving you a pot-holder holder.

Now some folks would stop, but I am much bolder
When you carry this gift you’re a pot-holder holder holder.
