Don't Start Me Talking

This song is by David Johansen and The Harry Smiths and appears on the album David Johansen and the Harry Smiths (2000).

Well, I'm going down the road, stop at Fannie Mae's
Gonna tell Fannie what I've heard her boyfriend say

Don't start me talking
'Cause I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifying, baby
'Cause somebody's got to go

Well, Jack gave his wife two dollars
Go down and get some margarine
Gets out on the street, old George stopped her
He knocks her down and blackens her eye
Get back home, tell her husband a lie

Don't start me talking
'Cause I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifying, baby
'Cause somebody's got to go

Well, she borrowed some money, go to beauty shop
He honked his horn, she began to stop
Said, "Come take me baby, around the block
I'm going to beauty shop where I can get my hair short"

Don't start me talking
'Cause I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifying, baby
'Cause somebody's got to go
