​Beedle Um Bum

This song is by Hokum Boys and appears on the compilation album Tampa Red Volume 1 1928-29 (1991) by ​Tampa Red.

Down in Memphis, Tennessee, lives a girl named Simmy
She runs a meat shop on the block, she's always got the 'gimme'
She serves a meal with a tadpole's heel you can't resist by trying
Every time you pass her door you can hear Miss Simmy crying

Oh, my beedle-um-bum
Come an' see me if you ain't had none
Make a dumb man speak make a lame man run
Sure miss somethin' if you don't get some of my
Beedle-um-bum, oh, my beedle-um-bum
It's the best beedle-um that's made in Tennessee

Ev'ry day at ten o'clock, she'd go down to the station
To the folks that come to town she'd give a little in-ver-tation
Ev'ry day, from noon till night, she's always busy selling
Beedle-um hot an' beedle-um cold, you can always hear her yelling

Oh, my beedle-um-bum
Come an' see me if you ain't had none
Sure, it ain't made small an' it ain't made wide
It's just made up in a medium size
My beedle-um-bum, oh, my beedle-um-bum
It's the best beedle-um that's made in Tennessee

Oh, my beedle-um-bum
Come an' see me if you ain't had none
Now you don't have to hurry, you don't have to go
You get a little taste - you'll want some mo' of my
My beedle-um-bum, oh, my beedle-um-bum
It's the best beedle-um that's made in Tennessee
