Lightnin' Hopkins – Little School Girl lyrics

Little school girl,
Let me tote your books to school today
Please, little school girl,
Let me tote your books to school today
She said, "I says you's a bad boy,
Mama said please keep you away"
(Spoken: That's what she said about Lightnin')

Mama want to know what you're doin',
Yes, after you get out of her sight
She said "If I let you tote my books,
Still I know, Sam, that ain't right"
When I get back home with my mother and dad,
That's where I might have a fight

I told the school teacher,
Little school girl carryin' too heavy a load
Yes, I told that school teacher,
Little girl was carryin' too heavy a load
She say, "You better get your big, bare feets,
Lightnin', make it down the road"

(Spoken: That little school girl was all right in her
But she got me, so I walked away and I say...)

Good mornin', little school girl,
How have you been today?
Good mornin' little school girl,
How have you been today?
I say I'll tote your books, I'll tote your books,
Darlin', 'cause you are goin' my way
