Translation help

My father had a couple of cafes in western Kansas during the dust bowl years and his tag line was: If you do not eat here, we will both starve. Does the following translation reflect the same humor? Si usted no come aqui, vamos a morir de hambre , tanto.

In his tag line the ,do not, and the ,we will, were contractions but as we all know - apostrophes are.........not allowed.

The translation is if: Si tu no comes aqui, los dos moriremos de hambre.
