SHANTY
(Jonathan Edwards)

Gonna sit down in the kitchen, fix me somethin' good to eat,
Make my head a little high, make the whole day complete.
We're gonna lay around the shanty, mama, and put a good buzz on.

Pass it to me, baby. pass it to me slow.
Take time out to smile a little before you let it go.
We're gonna lay around the shanty, mama, and put a good buzz on.

There ain't nothin' to do, and there's always room for more.
Fill it, light it, shut up, and close the door.
We're gonna lay around the shanty, mama, and put a good buzz on.

We're gonna sit down in the kitchen, fix us somethin' good to eat,
Make our heads a little high, make the whole day complete.
We're gonna lay around the shanty, mama, and put a good buzz on.
(Every night and day, if I can help it)
We're gonna lay around the shanty, mama and put a good buzz on.
