​If It Looks Like Jelly Shakes Like Jelly It Must Be Gelatine

This song is by Charley Lincoln and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by ​Charley Lincoln and ​Willie Baker.

Have you met Miss Maybelle Greene who makes all kind of gelatine?
'Course, she sells it very high, to get any better you need not try
I've known her for a great long time, all kind of jelly is in her line
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine

If you chance to pass her way, you will hear her singing 'most every day
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine

You once try it, you gon' buy it, that's just what I mean
Maybelle's jelly, h'it is good, you be satisfied to make your (?)
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine

Maybelle's cookin' is a treat, her jellyroll can not be beat
She always keep them fresh and clean, clean her jelly down in between
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine

Take it away, 'tain't no bluff, she sure knows how to strut her stuff
Now, try her once and you will see, why she stayin' her cards tough
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine

Tellin' all you men, she will treat you nice
To get her jelly gon' pay her price
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine

"There's no jelly in town, sweet like mine,
All of you poor boys, you must fall in line
Now, if you sold a little jelly to the man next door
He keep layin' 'round here for more"
If it look like jelly, shake like jelly, it must be gelatine
