Cornbread cornbread red
All that cornbread going to your head

If there's one thing I want you to do
One thing I ask of you
Take tomorrow and start anew

You can thank me or tell me true
'Cause I can see you ain't got a clue
Know how much it means to you

Cornbread cornbread red
All that cornbread going to your head

Red is red and blue is blue
Collard greens and vegetable stew
I don't ask that much of you

Pretty miss Polly gone ask you out
Left runnin' with a foot in yer mouth
All that cornbread'll help you out

Papa went fishin' said come along son
Have to wait 'til the cornbread's done
Ya want ketchup ya better run

If there's one thing I want you to do
One thing I ask of you
Take tomorrow and start anew

    Song MeaningThis is obviously not about bread...or corn
    'Red is red and blue is blue
    Collard greens and vegetable stew
    I don't ask that much of you'
    So if red is red and blue is blue..
    I guess that is self-explanatory
    'Colards greens and vegetable stew..'
    I think is about keeping eating the same thing
    and keep on keeping on till it goes to your head
    but still keeping on keeping eating the corn bread as well
    and you can eat it to the side or
    on the bread
    and the next day you start the whole damn thing again
    and during the time that you're making the dough
    you can go fishing with your father
    and one day you will run!
    to get ketchup
    cuz bread is bread and
    ketchup is red
    or fuck with Polly
