The Lyrics

Day-old, day-ay-ay-old,
Day-old bread from on down de block
Day, They say day, they say day, they say day-ay-ay-old
Claim one day, but be hard like rock

Bak-e-ry out-let..sellin' some,
(Buy de loaf, bag em, take em home)
Slice de bread loaf, it be too dry, much crum,
(Seven loaf, bag em, take em home)

So, now I gotta' go..take 'em back tomorrow
(Day-old bread must be ten day-old)
So hard..could break a tooth, do not need de sorrow
(Day-old bread surely ten day-old)

Dozen donuts, glazed..Creamsticks, too,
(All be moldy, when taste at home)
Cookie, berry pie, plum cake, too,
(Take back bak-er-y..waste at home)

Day, I buy day-ay-ay-old
(More day-old den de label shown)
Day, I buy day, i buy day,-I buy day-ay-ay-old
(More day-old den de label shown)

Take bread and pastry back, cuz' tomorrow hail now
(No cash back from de bak'ry, come)
Be gettin' day-old bread fed to me in jail now
(Punch him down, step on bake man's thumb)

Day, I buy day-ay-ay-old
(More day-old den de label shown)
Day, they say day, they say day, they say day-ay-ay-old
(More day-old den de label shown)

Buy..no more day-ay-ay-old--------

Originally ran search on this title under, "Day-O" and found none listed...but after submission I ran the other title, "Banana Boat Song" and learn that Fred Snider deserves credit for first use of "Day Old" title...altho' my theme is completely different...

AFW - Once again, you capture the stuff we all know with a chuckle. "Fresh" day-old bread isn't bad at all. My parents would buy day-old bread at the outlet and then freeze it! The resulting product tended to disintegrate when touched...lol. ;D

Thanks, OMR. Yes, one day old is alright, but it's been my experience that certain large stores,(no names mentioned) have a bad habit of placing new date and mark down stickers over the originals, oon baked goods, and a few times I've bought some of this junk, often as much as ten days, or more, old

Nuke it for 15 seconds and it should be as fresh as these fives I'm giving you!!!

Not a fresh idea, but still tasty. Hope I can work my "magic" on a similar theme. I recall when I was a very young lad that a local bread was "baked while you sleep" and rushed straight into the package. My grandmother would point out that this would often cause condensation inside the wrapper which accelerated mold growth. I saw a lot of this brand in green, and not for St Patrick's (no relation) Day.
