'Bout a Spoonful

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the compilation album Texas Sharecropper & Songster (1960).

I've been drinkin' bad whiskey all night long, got the headache now
Yes, been drinkin' bad whiskey all night long, oh Lord, mama, got the headache now

Tell me, what you gonna do with your brand-new daddy, 'bout a spoonful?
Tell me, what you gonna do with your brand-new papa, oh Lord, mama, 'bout a spoonful?

And late last night when come home from gettin' a spoonful
It was late last night I come home from gettin' a spoonful

Oh Lordy, mama, oh Lord, daddy, just a spoonful
All I want, baby, in this world, oh baby, just a spoonful

Eve and Adam was the first two people got a spoonful
Tell me, Eve and Adam was the first two people, oh mama, got a spoonful

Late last night when I lay down and got a spoon...
Baby, late last night I lay down, oh mama, got a spoonful

Oh, I drinkin' bad whiskey all night long, got the headache now
I been drinkin' bad whiskey all night long, oh mama, got the headache now

Tell me, what you gonna do with your brand-new daddy, 'bout a spoonful?
Oh what you gonna do with your brand-new papa, 'bout a spoonful?

Put him in the bed, gonna run him crazy, 'bout a spoonful
Put him in the bed, gonna run him crazy, oh Lord, mama, 'bout a spoonful

All I want in this wide world is just a spoonful
Baby, all I want in this wide world is just a spoonful

Tell me, what you gonna do with your brand-new mama, 'bout a spoonful?
Tell me, what you gonna do wïth your brand-new mama, oh Lord, baby, 'bout a spoonful?
