Nannie Doss set out to bake

And giggled at the thing she’d make

Her famous apple and prune pie

And she would serve it, by and by

She made water and butter boil

And stirred in flour and chicken oil

And laid it out and rolled with care

And placed it in the pie tin there

And in a bowl and with a spoon

She stirred the apple, spice, and prune

And when the filling was proper pied

She added in rodenticide

Nannie Doss had insured kin

And each one Nannie would do in

For each one Nannie cooked a pie

And she would serve it, by and by
