I Like My Baby

I Like My Baby's Pudding

Wynonie Harris

(Mann - Bernard, KING 4342, 1950)

Everybody's talking 'bout chicken an' rice
All of those dishes are mighty nice
Gather 'round you girls and listen to me
I wanna tell you about my baby's recipe
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all

There's a gal named miss Fannie Brown
She cooks the best gumbo in this town
All of you chicks can really cook
But Fannie Brown's learned something, you don't learn in books
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all

Ninety-nine times I've tried to eat
All those fine fancy cuts of country meat
Just can't eat a single bite
I just don't have the appetite
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all

Well, she promised me she wouldn't give no-one a pudding but me
Yeah, she promised me she wouldn't give no-one a pudding but me
But I don't believe her, I'll just have to wait and see
Gonna watch my baby, both night and day
So she won't give my pudding away
My baby's pudding is all she owns
So there ain't no meat for Henry Jones
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
I like my baby's pudding, I like it best of all
