Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
I can't believe so many people know this song. My grandfather and my mother both used to sing it and would exagerate an accent.They would use a v instead of w so it sounded like...

Vile travelling all round through this country
Sure I stop at a lot of otels
Some vas clean some vas neat, some vas cozy
But, some had the looks like a cell
But the last one I stop at, she vas a daisy
She vas cozy she vas neat and she vas clean
But I thought that I vould go crazy
When they told me what I got to eat

Vell, on Monday we has bread and gravy
On Tuesday vas gravy and bread
On Vednesday and Thursday vas gravy and toast
Eh! But, that's only gravy and bread
So, on Friday I says to the landlord
Can't you give me something else instead
So, Saturday morning by a vay of a change
Ve had gravy vithout any bread

After singing this song they would do a whole comedy act that started off... When I first come to the United States of America I was looking for a job
I was so surprised while looking for the words to the comedy act to find the bread and gravy song
