Daily Lyric: JELLYBREAD

You can take away my coffee

You can take away my tea

You can take away my hot chocolate

You can take away my TV

Take whatever you want

But don’t you take away my jellybread


You can take away my organ

You can take away my guitar

You can take away my house, man

You can take away my car

Take whatever you want

Just don’t you take away my jellybread


You can take away my blues riffs

You can take away my funk

You can take away my boogie woogie

You can take away all my junk

Take whatever you want

But don’t you take away my jellybread


Take away whatever you want man

Just don’t you be takin’ away my ol’ jellybread

Peanut butter optional.

Another one of my "lighthearted, nonserious" songs that I wrote while in the thick of my IDF service in the mid-1980s. For this one, I added a few simple lyrics to the Booker T. & the MGs song by the same title. The idea for the lyric came from a Schlitz beer commercial from 1978 ... "please don't take my gusto." Never actually recorded or performed (although I did jam on the original Booker T tune numerous times ... pun sort of intended).
