Bessie Smith – Whoa Tillie Take Your Time lyrics

Tillie Brown was a dancing fool
Spent her time in a dancing school
When the band would play
Tillie would start right in to sway
First one out on the ballroom floor
She never got enough, she just craved for more
When she start to sway
All the girls and boys would say

Whoa, Tillie, take your time
Whoa, Tillie, take your time
There ain't no use to hurrying 'cause you wanna prance
You've got all night to do that dance
Whoa, Tillie, lay 'em down

Whoa, Tillie Brown
You don't know what to shake
When you shake
What to break
Whoa, Tillie, take your time

Whoa, Tillie, take your time
Whoa, Tillie, take your time
There ain't no use to hurrying 'cause you wanna prance
Look out there, Tillie, you got all night to do that dance
Whoa, Tillie, lay 'em down
Whoa, Tillie, Tillie Brown
You don't know what to shake
When you shake
What to break
