Bessie Smith – Reckless Blues lyrics

When I wasn't nothin' but a child
When I wasn't nothin' but a child
All you men tried to drive me wild

Now I'm growin' old
Now I'm growin' old
And I've got what it takes to get all of you men told

My mama says I'm reckless, my daddy says I'm wild
My mama says I'm reckless, my daddy says I'm wild

I ain't good lookin' but I'm somebody's angel child

Daddy, mama wants some lovin'
Daddy, mama wants some huggin'
Darn it pretty papa, mama wants some lovin' I vow
Darn pretty papa, mama wants some lovin' right now
