​Strut That Thing

This song is by Cripple Clarence Lofton and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

Woke up this morning feeling bad
Thinking 'bout the times I once have had
You went out, stayed all night
Do you think that's treating me right?

'Cause you should not do it, you dog
Shouldn't do it, you dog, shouldn't do it, you dog
I'm telling these lovers
How to be strutting that thing night and day

Had your mama doodling around for 'em a while
Shook a dozen ribs down this aisle
Deacon Jones gave 'em to pray
Too much religion is what have had

Go to heaven, gotta stop this stuff
'Cause you been strutting that thing
Night and day, night and day
I mean, there's Jenny Lou
Out there strutting that thing night and day

Getting sick and tired the way you do
Kind mama, going to poison you
Sprinkle goofer dust round your bed
Wake some morning, find your own self dead

'Cause you should not do it, you dog
Shouldn't do it, you dog, shouldn't do it, you dog
I'm telling these lovers
How to be strutting that thing night and day

Yeah, beat it out

Oh boy

There's a lady by the name Miss Lou
Shook her thing till she caught the 'flu
Satisfied, she jumped in bed
She spoke and spoke like this

Shake your shoulder, can't shake your feet
Shake nothing, mama, but your wicked knees

'Cause you should not do it, you dog
Shouldn't do it, you dog, shouldn't do it, you dog
I'm telling these lovers
How to be strutting that thing night and day

Oh, beat it out

Take and shake it, Lord, You hang it on the wall
Out the window, catch it 'fore it fall
Stop awhile shimmy if it's all night long
Times I think you got your habits on

'Cause you should not do it, you dog
Shouldn't do it, you dog, shouldn't do it, you, oh
I'm telling these lovers
How to be strutting that thing night and day
