Save the Bones for Henry Jones

This song is by Jackie Washington and appears on the album Midnight Choo Choo (1998).

Tonight we'll serve a supper
We'll eat some food that's rare
And at the head of the table
We'll place brother Henry's chair
Invite all the local big dogs
We'll laugh and talk and eat
And we'll save the bones for Henry Jones
'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

Today I'll go to market
Buy up a lotta fish
Well, that should thrill brother Henry
'Cause fish is his special dish
Buy a can of molasses
So he'll have something sweet
And we'll save the bones for Henry Jones
'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

Now, Henry is not a drinker
He rarely takes a nip
And he don't need a napkin
Because the stuff he eats don't drip
One night we had a banquet
It really was a bake
We started off with short ribs
And finished off with steak
But when the feast was over
Brother Henry just kept his seat
And we served the bones to Henry Jones
'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

Now, Henry is not a drinker
He rarely takes a nip
And he don't need a napkin
Because the stuff he eats don't drip - I'm hip
One night we had a banquet
It really was a bake
We started off with short ribs
And finished off with steak
But when the feast was over
Brother Henry just kept his seat
And we saved the bones to Henry Jones
'Cause Henry don't eat no meat

He's an egg man
Henry don't eat no meat
Vegetarian
Henry don't eat no meat
