Subject: Origins: Wilburforce Get Off That Horse..........
From: Mark Ross
Date: 18 Dec 14 - 12:13 AM

Learned this from Kenny Hall years ago;

I love to eat, but I must have meat,
With my 'taters and my gravy,
Oh, Wilburforce, get off that horse and bring him in for lunch.

I've had beans, and beans, and beans,
Enough to feed the Navy,
Oh, Wilburforce get off that horse and bring him in for lunch.

My horse-pitality I offers to you,
Now don't say neigh and run away
Just like I never knew you.

A loin for me, a groin for you,
We'll barbecue the saddle too,
Wilburforce get off that horse and bring him in for lunch.

Oh Wilburforce (Wilburforce), Wilburforce (Wilburforce),
Wilburforce get off that horse and bring him in for lunch.

Any 'Catters out there have any clues as to where it comes from?

Mark Ross

It was released on Decca Records in 1943 as the B side to Pistol Packin' Mama by Freddie "Schnickelfritz" Fisher And His Orchestra.

Spelling is Wilberforce.
