lyrics

Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.

I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.

Two little babies laying in bed.
One played sick and the other played dead.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.

Ever since my dog's been dead,
hog been rooting my tater bed.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.

Old Miss Dinah sick in the bed
sent for the doctor. The doctor said,
"All she need's some shortnin' bread."
I do love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.

Two little babies laying in bed.
One played sick and the other played dead.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.

Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.

Put on the skillet.
Put on the lead.
Mama's gonna make a little shortnin' bread.
That ain't all she's gonna do.
Mama's gonna make a pot of coffee too.

Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.

Two little children
laying in bed.
One was sick and the other most dead.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
"Better feed them kids some shortnin' bread."

Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin', shortnin'.
Mama's little baby loves
shortnin' bread.

I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
Mama loves shortnin' bread.
Papa loves shortnin' bread.
Everybody love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
I love shortnin' bread.
I do love shortnin' bread.
