Shortnin' Bread


Three little children lyin' in bed
Two of them sick and the other most dead
Called for the doctor, the doctor said
"Feed them children some shortnin' bread

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

When them children lying in the bed
Heard that talk about shortnin' bread
Thay all got up and began to shout
Laughin' and a-singin' and a-dancin' about

Put on the skillet, put on the lid
Mammy's gonna make a little shortnin' bread
Then after that, there's a treat for you
Mammy's gonna make a little coffee too
