Teasin' Brown Blues

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

Well, mama, I dream about you night and day
Ah ah, baby, I dream about you night and day
I had my hand on some this mornin' and I swear I let it get away

I love you, mama, and I'll tell the world I do
I love you, baby, and-a I will tell the world I do
'Cause can't nobody treat me, honey, like my rider do

You don't have to cook me no chicken, 'cause your plain old neckbones will do
Don't have to cook me no chicken, 'cause your old neckbones will do
I'm gonna buy you some black-eyed peas, mama, and try to get 'long with you

How, mama? How do you speak, you little baby?
I hear your daddy calling. I'm crazy about the way you're doin'
I'm talkin' about your jelly roll
'Cause I know you've got something, will send salvation to your soul, Lordy, Lordy, Lord mmm

She got hair like Gloria Swanson and she walk just like Priscilla Dean
Hair like Gloria Swanson and she walk just like Priscilla Dean
'Cause she's the prettiest woman, old Louie have ever seen

I'm gonna ask the Good Lord to send me an angel down
I'm gonna ask the Good Lord to send me an angel down
But if she ain't not a good one, I'm going to clinge [sic] on to my teasin' brown

Recorded:

April2, 1935; Chicago, IL
