Pepper Pickin' Daddy

I’m a pepper pickin’ Daddy

Hot salsa in my veins  x2

I’m a pepper pickin’ Daddy

I can’t feel no pain

I called up my baby and said darling please come home

Yeah, I’ve been picking peppers and I’m all alone

Tell your boss your sick and give your dog a bone

I’ve gotta warn you baby

I’m spicy to the touch  x2

When I’ve been picking peppers I start burning up

I like them spicy habaneros 

But, Jalepenos will do 

Red hot chili peppers

And Che Guevara blues

Bells and bananas

I like them sweet ones too
