Won't You Be Kind?

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

Well, I'm so glad, the law has passed, you uptown gals got to cut your own grass
Oh, won't you be kind, to your kitchen, I mean your dining room, scrub out your pantry
Now, won't you be kind? Keep your back yard clean

I was walkin' down Fifth Street, turnin' down at Main, lookin' for the man, sell cocaine
Won't you be kind, to your kitchen, I mean your dining room, scrub out your pantry
Now, won't you be kind? Keep your back yard clean

There's old Aunt Dinah, a good old soul, she makes her livin' by cookin' light rolls
Won't you be kind, to your kitchen, I mean your dining room, scrub out your pantry
Now, won't you be kind, and keep your back yard clean?

Get a nickel worth of whiskey, a dime worth of gin, I'm gonna pay that gal five dollars to see her grin
Oh, won't you be kind, to your kitchen, I mean your dining room, scrub out your pantry
Now, won't you be kind? Keep your back yard clean

Get a nickel worth of beefsteak, a dime worth of lard, I'm gonna watch that bricklayer carry that hod!
Won't you be kind, to your kitchen, I mean your dining room, scrub out your pantry
Now, won't you be kind, and keep your back yard clean?

She got a face like a washboard, a mouth like a tub, I'm gonna learn that gal the washboard rub
Won't you be kind, to your kitchen, I mean your dining room, scrub out your pantry
Now, won't you be kind, and keep your back yard clean?

Recorded:

November 18, 1929; New York City, NY
