The Lyrics

When the first seeds of youth were sowin'
In us children, slowly growin',
Fresh new arteries were flowin' like the tide..
And when begs for chicken jarred,
Daddy'd kill 'em in the yard..
Out, would come that can a' lard..and Mama Fried

From a garden in the back
Big potatoes we would stack,
Very little food was needed from the store..
Was no information bookin'
'Bout the need for healthful cookin'
So, we feasted up on fat, right to the core..

White gravy, biscuits, sausage, bacon,
Hot cakes and homemade sweet rolls..
Chowed down until we'd almost bust inside
Didn't know those plasma highways
Would be cloggin' up, less wide
And so, today, we reap the sins that Mama Fried

In our vocabs, didn't fall..that big word, cholesterol
Just lived a simple life down on the farm
Workin' hard was all we knew..plowed until somethin' grew
Knew not that mama's cookin' could do harm..

White gravy, biscuits, sausage, bacon,
Hot cakes and homemade sweet rolls..
Chowed down until we'd almost bust inside
Didn't know the plasma highways
Were all cloggin' up, less wide
And so, today, we reap the sins that Mama Fried

Yes, today, we reap the sins that Mama Fried

(Southern drawl): Mighty fine parody, AFW! I do enjoy those vittles whipped up in your ditty! Enjoyed them scrumptious biscuits, gravy, and hotcakes, though our nurse of a mama tried to watch our cholesterol! Sizzling with 5's! Tzzzzzzzzzz!!!

Land sakes, won! I ate so much fried food when I was little that it clogged up my horn. I was diagnosed with coronary "trombosis" ;D

Poor mama gets blamed for everything. Let's bypass the criticism and be thankful for her open heart. Loved it. Your mama did good. 555's to you

Farce - Is this really about you? I know you were off the boards for about a month around last March and April. .Hope you are doing well. It is good that you can write about it. Keep them pipes clean and the parodies running. Fine write.

Thanks all, and answering Guys...Quest...I did have some artery problems..and had two stents implanted after H.A...so, I guess you could call it partially autobio...but generally, meaning everyone who was born before or around the 1940's..at least, in the midwest..where I hail from

I collect the eggs on the Campagna. And I agree that there is a much better taste, as well as firm consistancy to them when fried. Also, fresh < GOAT Milk : >) it is much better for human consumption, Sir !
