SHORTNIN' BREAD
(Bishop - Herman)

Put on the skillet, put on the lid
Daddy's little baby wants shortnin' bread
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread
Yeah yeah yeah, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread

Well, put on the skillet, put on the lid
Daddy'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, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread
Well, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread

Well, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread
Yeah yeah yeah, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread

My two baby children were sittin' in bed
One of them was sick and the other was dead
Now, I called for the doctor and this is what he said
You better feed the children on some shortnin' bread
Yeah yeah yeah, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread
Well, daddy's little baby loves shortnin' shortnin'
Daddy's little baby loves shortnin' bread
Shortnin' bread
Shortnin' bread
Shortnin' bread
Shortnin' bread
