Paul Chaplain & His Emeralds – Shortnin' Bread lyrics

Put on the skillet
Put on the lid
Mammy's little baby
Wants shortnin bread

Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread

Well, I put on the skillet
I put on the lid cause
Mammy's little baby
Wants shortnin bread

Well, I slipped to the kitchen
I kicked off the lid
I filled my pockets full
Of shortnin bread
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread

Well, Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread, yeah

Well, Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread

Well, two little children
Are sitting in bed
One of them is sick and
Then the other one's dead

Well, I called for the doctor
And here's what he said
You better feed the children
On some shortnin bread
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread

Well, Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin, shortnin
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin bread

Shortnin bread
Shortnin bread
Shortnin bread...
