How Come You Do Me Like You Do?

This song is by Marion Harris and appears on the album Brunswick 2 (1920's Blues & Jazz Vocals) (Recorded 1923-1925) (2014).

When soon this morning, I come rapping at your door
You kept me waiting like you never did before
That's a sure sign brown skin
I'll never rap no more, no more

How come you do me like you do do do?
How come you do me like you do?
Why do you try to make me feel so blue?
I ain't done nothing to you
You might be the meanest man in town
But I'm just mean enough to turn your damper down
How come you do me like you do do do?
How come you do me like you do?

Don't I let you do just what I want you to?
Don't I let you cheer me up when I feel blue?
And when it comes to huntin' jobs, I never shirk
I can always find a job but you won't go to work

Don't I always try to let you have my way?
And still you treat me mean, meaner every day
You better treat me right or let me be
'Cause I can be a goon just like you do with me
(Solo like 1 verse below)

How come you do me like you do do do, do do like you do
Why do you try to make me feel so blue, boo hoo I ain't done nothin' to you
I lay your head on a railroad line and let the train come along and pacify your mind
How come you do me like you do do do, do do do like you do do

I'll get a shovel before I'm done
If you haven't got a hole I'm gonna dig you one
How come you do me like you do do do, do do do like you do do
