Now oh little Susie
How I love you
Nothin' in the world
Gonna make me wor' you

Polly put the kettle on
Kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on
All have tea

A-bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for anybody
Bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for me

Now tell me baby
What you're tryin' to do?
You tryin' to love me
An some other man, too

I said Polly put the kettle on
Kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on
All the tea

You know a-bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for anybody
Bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough -'Play, John! '

(harmonica and instrumental)

'Alright, John! '

My baby went out
An stayed out all night long
Tell me baby
What you been waitin' on?

Then, Polly put the kettle on
Kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on
All the tea

A-bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for anybody
Bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for me

A-tell me baby
What you think?
A-let me go out
An get another drink

So a-Polly put the kettle on
Kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on
All the tea

A-bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for anybody
Bread an' butter's good enough
Good enough for me

(harmonica & instrumental to end)
