​Don't Sell It (Don't Give It Away)

This song is by Oscar "Buddy" Woods and appears on the compilation Broke, Black & Blue (1999).

It was early one mornin', 'bout the break of day, don't you hear me cryin', won't you listen what I say?
Early one mornin', baby 'bout the break of day
When she told me not to sell it, papa don't you give it away

I said yes, baby yes, no, baby no, yes baby yes, no baby no
I said yes, baby yes then I said no, baby no
I sold some jelly, I sure won't sell no more

I ain't gonna sell it, I ain't gonna give it away
I'm just going to keep it till judgement day

You know you didn't want me, why did you stall, don't you hear me cryin', little all-in-all
You know you didn't want me, baby why did you stall
I can get more women than a passender train can haul

And she told me not to sell it, don't you give it away, don't you hear me cryin', don't yiou listen what I say
She told me not to sell it, papa don't you give it away
Just keep that jelly, until Judgement Day

Keep it until Judgement day, then what you gonna do?
I guess you just going away then

I said yes baby yes, no baby no, yes baby yes, no baby no
I said yes baby yes, then I said no baby no
I've got a brand new gal and I don't want you no more
