Shortning Bread

Put on the skillet, slip on the lid,
Mama’s gonna make a little short’nin’ bread.
That ain’t all she’s gonna do,
Mama’s gonna make a little coffee, too.

Mama’s little baby loves short’nin’, short’nin’,
Mama’s little baby loves short’nin’ bread,
Mama’s little baby loves short’nin’, short’nin’,
Mama’s little baby loves short’nin’ bread.
