​Beedle Um Bum

This song is by McKinney's Cotton Pickers and appears on the compilation album McKinney's Cotton Pickers 1928-1929 (1991).

Down in Memphis, Tennessee
Lives a girl named Simmy
She's got a meat shop on the block
She's always got the gimme

Serves a meal with a tadpole heel
Can't resist for trying
Every time you pass her door
Hear Miss Simmy cryin'

Oh, beedle-um-bum
Come see me if you ain't had none
She make a dumb man speak
A lame man run
Sure miss something if you ain't had none

Oh, the beedle-um-bum
Oh, the beedle-um-bum
Got the best beedle-dum
Down in Tennessee

Oh, that beedle-um-dum-bum
Got that beedle-um-dum-bum
