Hot mush and molasses all in a blue bowl 

Eat it, it's good for you, sonny. 

'T will make you grow tall as a telephone pole 

Eat it, it's good for you, sonny. 

Fresh fish and potatoes all on a blue plate  

Eat it up smart now, my sonny. 

'T will make you as jolly and fat as Aunt Kate 

Eat it up quick now, my sonny. 

Sweet milk from a nanny-goat in a blue cup 

Drink it, it's good for you, sonny, 

'T will fill you, expand you, and help you grow up, 

And make a real man of you, sonny.
