Another one mentioned by Ronn:


YOUR GREENS GIVE ME THE BLUES
As recorded by the Rev. Billy C. Wirtz on "Deep Fried and Sanctified" 1988.

Baby, don't you know it's a sad circumstance
That I wear the apron and you wear the pants?
Yo, but baby, I love you; that ain't the question.
Your cookin' would give Godzilla indigestion.
Your chicken ain't clickin'; your greens just gi' me the blues.

Your biscuits don't rise; your muffins don't work.
If Betty Crocker saw 'em she'd go completely berserk.
You burned the toast.
You even burned up the roast.
Your fried chicken ain't clickin' and your greens just gi' me the blues.

You deep-fried the jello; you boiled the bacon.
The artichoke told me his heart was breakin'.
I ate one of your biscuits; the dog ate seven,
And now he's restin' up in canine heaven.

Now that cake recipe that you got from your mom,
It looks like Hiroshima after they dropped the bomb.
You totaled the toast.
Just look at this roast!
Your fried chicken just ain't clickin' and your greens still gi' me the blues.

You even fouled up the turkey.
You make my beef kinda jerky.
Well, your chicken ain't clickin' and your sweet potato, stewed tomatoes, ravioli, guacamole, chowmein, quiche Lorraine, and most of all, your greens just gi' me the blues.
