Put on the skillet
Put on the lid
Mammy's little baby
Wants shortnin' bread

[Chorus:]
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin', shortnin'
Mammy's little baby
Loves shortnin' bread

[Repeat chorus]

Well, I put on the skillet
I put on the lid cause
Mammy's little baby
Wants shortnin' bread

Well, I slipped into the kitchen
I picked off the lid
I stuffed myself full
Of shortnin' bread, well

[Repeat chorus 2x]

Yeah

[Repeat chorus 2x]

Well, two little children
Are sitting in bed
One of them's sick
And the other one's red

Well, I called for the doctor
And here's what he said
Better make those children
Some shortnin' bread

[Repeat chorus 2x]

Yeah, shortnin' bread
Yeah, shortnin' bread
Yeah, shortnin' bread...
