Lyrics

Gonna buy me sack of flour Bake a hoecake ev'ry hour Keep my skillet good and greasy all the time, time, time Keep my skillet good and greasy all the timeHoney if you say so I'll never work no more I'll lay around your shanty all the time, time, time Lay around your shanty all the timeGot some chickens in my sack Got the bloodhounds on my track Keep my skillet good and greasy all the time, time, time Keep my skillet good and greasy all the timeIf they beat me to the door I'll sic 'em on the floor Keep my skillet good and greasy all the time, time, time,...Gonna buy me a jug of brandy Gonna give it all to Nancy Keep her good and drunk and goosey all the time, time, time,...
