KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"No Biscuit Blues"

Never had no biscuit
Never had no sweater to wear
To keep me from the cold
Never no potato
Never had no leather on my feet
'Til I was five years old

When I was a baby
My mammy said
I never had no food to keep me full
And I never had no sweater made of wool
And that went and made my daddy have to pull
A JOB
Which means he had to rob

But now, tho I have a biscuit
And I have a sweater to wear
To keep me from the cold
My mammy she is crying
'Cause my daddy he is lying
With no biscuit and no sweater
On the cold stone floor

While my mammy and me
We don't want for nothing more
