It would reappear on the odds-and-ends compilation Rag and Bone Buffet: Rare Cuts and Leftovers.

QuotesEdit

Andy Partridge: "Too Many Cooks In The Kitchen: The Colonel is Colin. He did this in about 1979. He took a pseudonym so as not to make it seem that the band was into the Archies. It's a mix between a joke and an actual poke at getting on the charts. That's his dentist, Bent Larsen, playing guitar."[1]

LyricsEdit

There's too many cooks in the kitchen

There's too many minds on the job

There's too many cooks in the kitchen

Everybody wants a piece of the action

Cooking the books and getting their fractions wrong


What we need is law and order

Everybody knows

Can't have chiefs without the injuns

Stepping on their toes


There's too many cooks in the kitchen

There's too many daps in the pie

There's too many cooks in the kitchen

Everybody needs a place in the rat race

Playing games of power, it's only a cat chase

What we need is law and order

Everybody knows

Can't have chiefs without the injuns

Stepping on their toes


Too many too many too many etc.

Too many cooks in the kitchen
