Polly Put The Kettle On - John Lee

Polly Put The Kettle On

John Lee 'sonny Boy' Williamson

(Traditional, 1947)

Now, oh little Suzie, how I love you
Nothing in the world will make me embarrass you
Polly put the kettle on, kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for anybody
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for me
Now tell me baby what you're tryin' to do
You're tryin' to love me and some other man too
Let Polly put the kettle on, kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for anybody
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for me
Blind John!

My baby went out and stayed out all night long
Tell me baby what you been waitin' on
Then Polly put the kettle on, kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for anybody
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for me
Now tell me baby what you think
Let me go out and get another drink
So Polly put the kettle on, kettle on, kettle on
Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for anybody
Bread and butter's good enough, good enough for me

Originally a nursery rhyme, also adapted by many other artists
