This Ain't No Place for Me

This song is by Jim Jackson and appears on the compilation album Jim Jackson Vol. 2 (1928-1930) (1992).

I went out to the country to take a little rest
I set down beneath the tree, pulled off my coat and vest
Some college girls were playing nearby, kickin' what they thought was an old football
But what it turned out to be was a hornet's nest, that's all

I took one look, then I said, "This ain't no place for me"
The little bees was in the air, as busy as they could be
The infernal bugs that filled the air, one girl got stung but she wouldn't say where
I took one look, then I said, "This ain't no place for me"

My Father took sick one day, said, was feeling awful bad
I thought I would play a trick on my dear old Dad
I went and bought some limburger cheese and placed it in Pa's bed
And then I sent for the doctor, and this is what he said

He took one look, then he said, "This ain't no place for me
The undertaker's what you want, you've got no use for me"
The doctor grabbed his nose and said, "Gee, how long has he been dead?"
He took one look and then he said, "This ain't no place for me"

I went out to the seashore once, take a little swim
A girl was standing in front of me, her bathing suit was thin
She stooped down to pick up a shell and as she straightened back
I saw that her bathing suit was ripping up the back

I took one look and then I said, "This ain't no place for me"
The water she was standing in just came up to her knee
A blind man standing beside of me said, "Gee, I wish that I could see"
I took one look, then I said, "This ain't no place for me"

I went out to the circus just to pass the time away
I bought my ticket and walked right in like any other old jay
A bear got loose in there, right after me he went
The only place I had to hide was in the ladies' dressing tent

I took one look and then I said, "This ain't no place for me"
I-I was runnin' everywhere, but what I saw, in there
I would rather face ten grizzly bears
I took one look and then I said, "This ain't no place for me"
