Shortnin' Bread is The Wiggles song from Apples & Bananas.

Song Lyrics

Three little children lying in bed,
Two were sick, and the other full of dread.
Sent for the doctor, the doctor said
Give those children some shortnin bread.

Mama's little baby loves shortnin, shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.
Mama's little baby loves shortnin, shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.

Put on the the skillet, slip on the lid
Mama's gonna make a little shortnin bread.
That ain't all that she's gonna do,
Mama's gonna make a little coffee too.

Mama's little baby loves shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.
Mama's little babies love shortnin, shortin,
Mama's little babies love shortnin bread.

When those children sick in bed,
Heard that talk about shortin bread.
Popped up well to dance and sing,
Skipped around and caught the pigeon wing.

Mama's little baby loves shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.
Mama's little baby lives shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.

Mama's little baby loves shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.
Mama's little baby loves shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.

Mama's little baby loves shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.
Mama's little baby loves shortnin shortnin
Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread.

Trivia

  • The song crescendos (meaning the dynamics/music gets louder) when Simon sings by himself or when The Non-realistic Wiggles sing altogether and it decrescendos (meaning the music gets softer) when Emma or Lachy sing in a solo. But the first time Simon sings by himself, the dynamics are soft.
  • Anthony plays the drums in the music video.
  • The first 4 lines are similar to Five Little Joeys.
  • The Dorothy the Dinosaur dolls are used as Dorothy's children.
  • The song was uploaded on The Wiggles' YouTube Channel on April 11th 2017.
  • The tune is similar to Here We Go Dorothy.
