Katzenjammer - Cherry Pie lyrics
Four cups of cherries or more, maybe five just to be sure,
One cup of sugar or more if the berries are sour.
Let your belly say when, when you put in
A good pinch cinnamon
Groovin’, twistin’ your leg, when you add the yolk of an egg
Crumble some butter with four small cups of flour
And in the wink of an hour, if you’re lucky you’ll try
My great-granny's cherry pie.
Well listen, once back in 1865,
My great-granny served her very first cherry pie
And it’s been doin’ wonders
Ever since she spread
Her lovin’ crumbles
She mended broken hearts
And won every price in the local country markets.
She was the sweetest thing,
Invited everybody in to share
Tender lovin' care
And some pie here and there.
Well listen, once back in 1869,
My great-grandad walked in and caught her eye,
And he´s been doing tumbles ever since he tasted her lovin´ crumbles.
She once said to me, "One day you’re gonna thank me for this recipe.
You gotta follow it to the T.
It takes more than just a twinkle in your eye,
So when you find your guy,
Invite him in for some pie."
