​How You Want Your Rollin' Done

This song is by Louie Lasky and appears on the compilation The Songster Tradition: 1927-1935 (1991).

Ah, tell me, mama, just how you want your rollin' done
Now, tell me, baby, just how you want your rollin' done
And just as long as you like it, if it takes the whole night long

My girl's got teeth like the lighthouse on the sea
I mean, baby, like the lighthouse upon the sea
And every time she smiles, she throws her lovin' light on me

My rider got something, and I don't know just what it is
My rider got something, and I don't know just what it is
And every time she wiggles and wobbles, papa can't keep his black self still

Lord, I'm wild about her jelly, she's put me in the alley
'Cause my gal's name is Sally and I know she's got good jelly
Tell me, just how you want that rollin' done
And just as long as you like it, if it takes the whole night long

Ah, I can get religion, baby, most any day
I mean, hey, most any day
But the dice and these women, I swear they won't let me pray

Ah, if you steal my rider, I won't get mad wit' you
If you steal my rider, I won't get mad wit' you
'Cause she's three times seven and she knows exactly what to do
