Mama Don't Rush Me Blues

This song is by Willie Baker and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by Charley Lincoln and Willie Baker.

Spoken: What's up here, mama, what's the matter? I know you wouldn't dare to treat me like that!

Paid my room rent last night, half past ten
Take my gal to the door, but she wouldn't go in
Landlady, don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
Landlady, don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time

I's takin' a gal for a ride, she try to get rough
"Mama, I been used to always strut my stuff, now
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time"
I said, "Please don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time"

Ain't these women funny, 'bout the way they do
Start to love another man, then go to doggin' you, now
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
I said, please don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time

I buy you cigarettes and I buy you snuff
I know doggone well, now, when I get enough, now
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
I said, please don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time

Now, I makes from one to ten dollars every day
I know that's enough to let you have your way, now
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
I said, please don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time

Mama, you gettin' just like, says, a farmer's mule
Longer I live with you, harder you is to rule, now
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
I said, don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time

I told my wife, "You want me to wait,
You better stop your sister from showin' her shape"
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
Don't rush me, 'cause I been used to takin' my time
