VITAMIN L (Mary Kay Place) Mary Kay Place (as Loretta Haggers) - 1977 When I was a kid 'n' livin’ at home I took feelin’ fine for granted Well, I didn’t know then what I know now Why Mama always raved ‘n’ ranted She said, "Early to bed 'n' early to rise Live the golden rule 'n' exercise ‘N’ most important of all," she said with a grin "Be sure you get your vitamins" Vitamins A ‘n’ C ‘n’ D ‘n’ B Well they keep you healthy ‘n’ well But Mama didn’t tell me when I was a kid All about Vitamin L She sure forgot to tell me when I was a kid All about Vitamin L Mama made me eat carrots 'n' hominy grits Though I really felt disinclined But she said they was packed with vitamin A And if I didn’t that I’d go blind She said, "Your skin’ll break out 'n' you’ll get beri-beri ‘Less you eat all them black-eyed peas ‘Cause them and the greens 'n' the lima beans They all got Vitamin B ‘N’ you’ll get scurvy 'less you eat them prunes ‘Cause they got vitamin C Well then, c’mon outside 'n' play in the sun Or get rickets from no vitamin D" Well, I did what she said 'n' I ate what she asked ‘N’ for a while I felt real swell But I sure wish Mama had told me back then All about Vitamin L Yeah, I sure wish Mama had a mentioned to me All about Vitamin L Well, thanks to vitamins 'n' Mama’s advice I grew to be healthy ‘n’ strong Till a cowboy one night that I loved at first sight Well, he hurt me ‘n’ he done me wrong Well, he loved me ‘n’ he left me, but he taught me the ropes ‘Specially ‘bout Vitamin L ‘Cause Vitamin L is a love, you see And without it, well, it’s hell ‘Cause of all the vitamins in your daily minimum requirement Mmm, Vitamin L’s the most important to you ‘Cause if you don’t get enough Vitamin L Your heart’ll break a-right in two I know Vitamin C’s real good for a cold Vitamin B if your lips should swell But the only thing that cures them love sick blues Is a shot o’ that Vitamin L Well, I surely do need me a big ol' dose Of that good ol' Vitamin L (Contributed by Mel - May 2009)
