Gonna Keep My Skillet Greasy (2)

I was going up the street
Just to buy me a ham of meat
Gonna keep my skillet greasy
All the time, time, time
Gonna keep my skillet greasy
All the time.

I'm going to buy me a quart of brandy
Just to give to my little Mandy
And keep her good and boozy
All the time, time, time
And keep her good and boozy
All the time.

If I could hang around your door
I would never work no more
I'd just hang around your shanty
All the time, time, time
I would hang around your shanty
All the time.

Collected from Frank Proffit

O de times is very hard
I'm gonna get me a dime's worth of lard
I'm gonna keep my skillet greasy if I can.
     If I can, can, can
     If I can, can, can
     I'm gonna keep my skillet greasy if I can.

I will go to ol' man Gene's
Get myself a sack of beans
I'm gonna keep my skillet greasy if I can
     If I can, can, can etc.

O de rabbit's in de log
I ain't got no rabbit dog
Goin' to keep my baby eatin' if I can.
     If I can,  can, can etc.
