Southern Culture on the Skids – Banana Puddin

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Apple/Banana/Cherry/Olive/Orange/Strawberry.

From their 1997 album, Plastic Seat Sweet. The song did not chart.

From Wikipedia

Southern Culture on the Skids, also sometimes known as SCOTS, is an American rock band that was formed in 1983 in Chapel HillNorth Carolina. The band consists of Rick Miller, Dave Hartman, and Mary Huff.

Guitarist/singer Rick Miller, drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country-fried garage with a side of psych, all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. It’s a musical gumbo Miller calls, “Americana from the wrong side of the tracks.“ The band has been prolific and ubiquitous for over thirty years, touring everywhere from the North Carolina prison system to Mount Fuji, Japan, and delivering what Rolling Stone calls “a hell raising rock and roll party.“

Banana Puddin

Banana puddin’, banana puddin’
Banana puddin’, banana puddin’
Banana puddin’, banana puddin’
Mama’s hard at work back in the kitchen
(Day old banana puddin’)
Daddy’s on the sofa just a-moanin’ and a-bitchin’
(Day old banana puddin’)
I want something good and sweet to eat
(Day old banana puddin’)
Something that’s easy on the gums and teeth
(Day old banana puddin’)

Puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’
Puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’
Ain’t that a slippery groove?

Banana puddin’, banana puddin’
Banana puddin’, banana puddin’

It takes a little time to develop the flavor
(Day old banana puddin’)
To soak it all up with your vanilla wafer
(Day old banana puddin’)
So get out your bowl and your wooden spoon
(Day old banana puddin’)
‘Cause I can smell your pudding clean across this room
(Day old banana puddin’)
Puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’
Puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’ puddin’
Ain’t that a slippery groove?
