Mama Don't Want It

This song is by Lillie Mae.

Says, Johnny in front yard playin' in the sand
Pretty little shovel in his hand
Along come a man doin' the Cater Street Shimmy
Johnny rolls up an' says, "Wait just a minute"

Mama don't wan' it, take it all away from here

Uncle Bud had a date with a big fat gal
I think her name was Sue
Uncle Bud got drunk, started actin' funny
Gal put him out, took all his money

Mama don't wan' it, take it all away from here

Now, the reason I love that long tall man
Tell you the reason why
Long tall man, he's always ready
Little old man dos nothin' but tread it

Mama don't wan' it, take it all away from here

Now, it's a bootlegger here an' a bootlegger there
I used to be one myself
But I had to go and leave bootleg behind me
Put me in jail an' the judge wouldn't fine me

Mama don't wan' it, take it all away from here

Don't come here, mama, with your head hung down
I cain't use you now
I left you papa 'n bin all through the jungle
Come back home with your eyes full of young 'uns

Mama don't wan' it, take it all away from here
