The Spasm

This song is by Daddy Stovepipe & Mississippi Sarah and appears…

You ask my man for a meal, you spasm, you
You ask my man for a meal, you lowdown hound
You ask my mean for a meal
Something else you're trying to steal
I'll be glad when you're dead, you spasm, you

You showed my wife how to dance, you no-good rat
You showed my wife how to dance, you pop-eyed hound
You showed my wife how to dance
You brought her back without her pants
I'll be glad when you're gone, you dog

I wanna know what is that you got, you spasm, you
I wanna know what is that you got, you spasm, you
I wanna know what is that you got
That makes my man so doggone hot
I'll be glad when you're dead, you spasm, you

You begged my wife for a watch and chain, you hound
You begged my wife for a watch and chain, you dog
You begged my wife for a watch and chain
Just for a chance to shake that thing
I'll be glad when you're gone, you spasm, you

I say a bow-legged woman's like a snake in the grass, you hound
Well a bow-legged woman's like a snake in the grass, you dog
A bow-legged woman's like a snake in the grass
A good fool lands on his yas yas yas
I'll be glad when you're dead, you dog

I peeked through the keyhole and looked, you no-good rat
I peeked through the keyhole and looked, you pop-eyed fool
I peeked through the keyhole and looked
What you was doing wasn't in the book
I'll be glad when you're gone, you no-good rat

I went to the river and I couldn't get across, you hound
I went to the river and I couldn't get across, you dog
I went to the river and I couldn't get across
I jumped on your brother and I rode him for a horse
I'll be glad when you're dead, you dog
