Into the fire

Mama told me,
“Don’t ya fry no bacon
when you’re standing barefoot, son,
for it’s bound to cause
some trouble down the line.
And if you fry that bacon
when you got no stockings on
you deserve just what you get,
every time.”

And what I got
is this here limp
’cause my toes done got burnt off
when I put pork bellies
sizzlin’ in the pan.
Ol’ Mama, she was right,
I shoulda worn some shoes or socks.
Now I figure I should break fast
with gloves upon my hands.

Into the fire

Sock it to me
