Original video
Spoken: Gang around, boys, I want to tell you about my brownskin gals

Got a gang of brownskin sweet women, got a gang of high yellas, too
I got so many womens I don't know what to do

Got a Monday, Monday girl, she works it on Broad and Main
Got a Tuesday one, says, she issue my spendin' change

Got a Wednesday, Wednesday girl, she works it on Broadway Square
Got a Thursday one, take me each and everywhere

Got a Friday, Friday girl, she brings me a bottle of beer
Got a Saturday one, well, she better not catch me here

Now, gang around, girls and boys, explain my Sunday to you
Wear those patent leather slippers, mama, those navy blue

Well, I love my sweet baby, I'll tell this world I do
And I hope some day she'll learn to love Daddy, too

Huh...

Keedala, keedala, kudala, keedala, kah, kah-kah, kah, keedala, kah, kah
Kah-kah, kahdala, kuh-kuh, kudala, kow

Got a gang of brownskin sweet women, got a gang of high yellas, too
And I hope some day she'll learn to love Daddy, too

Keedala, keedala, kudala, keedala, ku, kaah, keedala, kah, kah
Kah-kah, keedala, kuh-kuh, kudala, kee

Huh...
