Nobody In Town Can Bake A Sweet Jelly Roll Like Mine

This song is by Bessie Smith and appears on the album Mama's Got The Blues (1994) and on the album 1923 (1996).

In a bakery shop today
I heard Miss Mandy Jenkins say
She had the best cake, you see
And they were fresh as fresh could be
And as the people would pass by
You would hear Miss Mandy cry

Nobody in town can bake a sweet jelly roll
Like mine, like mine
No other one in town can bake a sweet jelly roll
So fine, so fine

It's worth lots of dough, the boys tell me so
It's fresh every day, you'll hear 'em all say
Don't be no dunce, just try it once
You'll be right in line

Somebody told me I made the best jelly roll
In town, I say in town
You must admit that I'm a jelly roll
Bakin' hound, bakin' hound

Good jelly roll, jelly roll is so hard to find
We always get the other kind
Nobody in town can bake a sweet jelly roll like mine

Somebody told me I made the best jelly roll
In town, I say in town
You must admit that I'm a jelly roll
Bakin' hound, bakin' hound

Good jelly roll, jelly roll from a bakery shop
Will surely make a pool frog hop
Nobody in town can bake a sweet jelly roll
Like mine, like mine
