Yeah, the holdup man says, 'Don't act tough
Give me yo' money or I'll treat you rough'
Yes, I'm gonna get it, yes, I'm gonna get it
I mean I'm gonna get it, just as well n'give it to me

Now the little dog started in to run
The big dog said, 'Pup you jes' begun'
Yes, I'm gonna get it, yes, I'm gonna get it
I mean I'm gonna get it, just as well n-give it to me

(guitar & instrumental)

Spoken - 'Yes, I'm gonna get it'

Now, I'm goin' downtown to see Lizzie Brown
She got the best jellyroll that is in town
Yes, I'm gonna get it, yes, I'm gonna get it
I mean I'm gonna get it, just as well n-give it to me

(harmonica & instrumental)

Yeah, an there's one thing I afraid to say
A short-leg'd woman can go a long, long ways
Yes, I'm gonna get it, I mean I'm gonna get it
Yes, I'm gonna get it, just as well n'give it to me'

(guitar & instrumental)

Spoken - Yea-yes, I'm gonna get it'

I've got what it takes, I am no child
Makes no mistake, yes I'm runnin' wild
Yes, I'm gonna get it, I know I'm goin' to get it
I mean I gonna get it, just as well n'give it to me'
