This Should Be Our Theme Song... -- posted by Sarah Grace



'Cept we ain't negro.



Cornbread and Butterbeans Lyrics

Cornbread and butterbeans and you across the table,
Eatin' dem beans and makin' love as long as I am able,
Hoein' corn and cotton too, and when the day is over,
Ride the mule, and cut the fool, and love again all over.

Goodbye. Don't you cry. I'm going to Louisiana,
To buy a coon dog and a big fat hog and marry Suzianna.
Sing-song, ding-dong, I’ll take a trip to China,
Cornbread and butterbeans, and back to North Carolina.

Chorus

Wearin' shoes and drinkin' booze it goes against the Bible.  A necktie will make you die and cause you lots of trouble.  Streetcars and whiskey bars and kissin' pretty women.  Women yeah that's the end of a terrible beginning.

Chorus

I can't read and don't care and education is awful.
Raisin' heck and writin' checks, it ought to be unlawful.
Silk hose and frilly clothes is just a waste of money.
Come with me and stay with me and say you'll be my honey.

Chorus

Repeat Chorus

I think I hear the sound of the spoons being played! A much under-used instrument, in my opinion! s x

Yes! They use spoons, kazoos, jugs, and more. They're our favorite band... today.
