This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation Too Late, Too Late: Volume 3 (1927-1960's) (1994) and on the compilation album Queen Of Country Blues (2005).

Everybody worrying me, want to know why I'm so crazy about dirt dauber tea
Everybody worrying me, want to know why I'm so crazy about dirt dauber tea
Because when I was young, they built their nest on me

Now everybody tells me I need a doctor, I need someone to stay here with me
But I don't need nothing but that dirt dauber tea
Because when I was young, they built their nest on me

And out of all that I crave, all that I seen
I don't want nothing but that dirt dauber tea
Because when I was young, they built their nest on me

When I was down sick in my bed, blind, couldn't hardly see
That dirt dauber flew down in my bed and built his nest on me
That's why I say, "I'm crazy about that dirt dauber tea"

Ahw, dirt dauber's a builder
Ahw, dirt dauber's a builder
Dirt dauber is a builder, he built his nest on me
That why I say, "I'm crazy about the dirt dauber tea"
