We Can Sell That Thing

This song is by Roosevelt Sykes and appears on the compilation Rude Dudes (2003).

There you was down in them lees
Didn't have nothing, but a limburger cheese
We could smell that thing, ah we may sell that thing
It may be alright, we gotta try to sell that thing

It may be just as good, just as good as gold
No mess around it, and let it get too old
But we can sell that thing, we can smell that thing
It may be alright, but we can smell that thing

You go away, and you stays all day
When you come back, you smells in a different way
We can smell that thing, we can smell that thing
But it may be alright, but we can smell that thing

Well I know something, that I won't say
Tell me, why do you smell that old way
We can smell that thing, oh how we can smell that thing
Oh it may be alright, but we can smell that thing

But I just tell you, because you don't know
People are talking, everywhere I go
They can smell that thing, oh I didn't smell that thing
It may be alright, but we can smell that thing

Wind blow at night, and the wind blows in the day
Don't it smell, when it blowing your way
We can smell that thing, oh we can smell that thing
But it may be alright, still we can smell that thing

Recorded:

c. August 1930; Grafton, WI
