Little girl, are you gonna wake up today?
Hello, hello baby,
(Spoken: I'm lookin' at ya)
Little girl, is you gonna wake up today?
Just go ahead sleep on, ol' sleepy head
I'll go down on the job and draw your pay
(Spoken: But she's my baby)
I'm gonna take you back to poor mama, little girl
Say, can't your mother talk some sense in your head?
Father would kill you, if that old man heard just what
That's why I'm gonna carry you back to your dear old
Say, can't she talk some sense in your head?
