Ohio Players – Jive Turkey lyrics

Hey, is that your old lady over there, man?
No, man, that ain't none of my old lady.
I used to talk to you,
Then I catch you goin' out
And you just busted her.
Now listen to this.

I used to think that you were really cool,
I used to think that you never would be nobody's fool.
Let me tell you baby,
You're a jive turkey.
Give me it straight,
Jive turkey,
Yeah baby,
Jive turkey,
Wow, wow, wow, wow.

I played hookie from school just to be with you.
I put my trust in you
'Cause you could do the do
'Cause you could do the do
'Cause you could do the do
I put my trust in you
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow
Give me it straight baby
Jive turkey,
Jive turkey,
Jive turkey,
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow
Lordy lordy lordy lordy lord
Hey, hey.
Alright get in the groove.
All you jive turkeys clap your hands.
Jive turkey,
Jive turkey,

Say what?
Say your sorry?
Baby I'm not goin' for that no more.
I done had enough of that.

Wa wa wow
Jive turkey,
Jive turkey,

Wow, wow, wow, wow wow.

Jive turkey

Think I'll play the blues.
Early in the morning,
Go out and find somebody new

What about Marvin, Mervin and Pee Wee?
That's you all.
Yes, my name is Satchmo
