Subject: RE: Help: Shortnin' Bread
The Andrews Sisters recorded a swing version of "Shortenin' Bread" about sixty years ago. It's probably on CD somewhere. The old 78 may be how the song got to England.

There's never any need to apologize for modifying the lyrics of traditional songs. Azizi's adaptation sounds good to me.
