​Me and My Tapeworm

This song is by Sylvester Weaver and appears on the album Sylvester Weaver Vol. 2 (1927) (1992).

Gee, I'm always hungry, can't get enough to eat
Gee, I'm hungry, can't get enough to eat
I'm just like a savage, I could eat a barrel of meat

Set down to the table, ate up everything I could found
Set down to the table, ate up everything I found
Would have ate the dishes if someone hadn't been around

Pot of ham and cabbage, ain't enough to fill mine
Pot of ham and cabbage, ain't enough to fill mine
That just makes me peckish, I could eat a dozen fine

Saw my family doctor, said I had a big tapeworm
I saw my family doctor, said I had a big tapeworm
Said I had ate a cow, made me good and firm

Went to the country, broke into a chicken coop
I went to the country, broke into a chicken coop
Stole a dozen chickens, put 'em in a pot of soup

I'm a greedy glutton, eat fifty times a day
I'm a greedy glutton, eat fifty times a day
When I'm around a pigpen, they hide the slop away

Guess me and my tapeworm must go further down the road
Guess me and my tapeworm must go further down the road
'Cause we eat so much, won't nobody give us no board
