Black Strap Molasses (Kaye Danny)

Black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Makes you live so long you wish you were dead You add some yogurt and you'll be well fed With black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread My grandpa's older than the old grey mare He sits a-rockin' in his rockin' chair But now he's got a smile that he can't lose Grandma's sittin' knittin' baby shoes From eatin' black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Makes you live so long you wish you were dead You add some yogurt and you'll be well fed With black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread I gave up cherry pie and T-bone steak Chicken fricassee and ice cream cake I don't need vitamins or pills at all I even mix it with my Hadacol I'm eatin' black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Makes you live so long you wish you were dead You add some yogurt and you'll be well fed With black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread My nerves were jumpy and I'd walk the floor I never got to sleep till after four But since I'm eatin' right I feel okay I'm sleepin' every night and half the day From eatin' black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Makes you live so long you wish you were dead You add some yogurt and you'll be well fed With black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Now I was thinner than a pencil line Had no muscles and I had no spine But now I'm friskier than a pup All you have do is prop me up Just feed me black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Makes you live so long you wish you were dead You add some yogurt and you'll be well fed With black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread I know a fella who is ninety-two Doctors told the guy that he was through But now that the doctor has been proven wrong He's got more hop in him than Hopalong From eatin' black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread Makes you live so long you wish you were dead You add some yogurt and you'll be well fed With black strap molasses and the wheat germ bread
