LUNCH IN A BUCKET

My baby brings me my lunch in a bucket
My baby brings me my lunch in a can
My baby brings me a sup of apple cider and she holds my hand
Mmm, holds my hand

My baby brings me a sweet little good chicken dumplin'
My baby brings me a cold ice tea
My baby brings me a rice and juicy apple and she kisses me
Mmm, kisses me

Well I work all day for a dollar an hour
Doin' what the big man say
And if wasn't for my sweet little baby
Bringin' my lunch to me, I'd quit today

My baby brings me my lunch in a bucket
My baby brings me my meat on a plate
My baby brings me a whole lot-a kisses and a choc'late cake,
Mmm choc'late cake
