I never been so worried
So bothered in my life befo'
I never been so worried
So bothered in my life befo'
And if I just make it over
I won't be back, no mo'

My grouchy hearted, mama
She's evil as a gal can be
Oh yeah!
Now, my grouchy hearted, mama
She's evil as a gal can be
The more I try to love 'er
The less she seem to care for me

I don't mind her laughing
I love to see her have her fun
I don't mind her laughing
I love to see her have her fun
But when it come to loving
I don't want her to give 'way none

(piano)

'Oh, play it Mr. So and So
'You know what I'm talkin' bout'

'Oh yes'
'Drink up another pint there, ladies and gentlemen'
'I'm 'on get drunk and pitch me a, play a boogie-woogie'
'You know what I'm talkin' 'bout?
'I ain't gon' cheat nobody, though'
'Remember, if you always be a good fella
You'll die one'
'That right, oh yeah'

Now, my grouchy hearted, mama
Got something like a sting-a-ree
'Do you know what I'm talkin' about?'
'Ha-ha'
Now, my grouchy hearted, mama
Got something like a sting-a-ree
'You know it's tough man, too'
I believe to my soul
She done put that thing on me

Now, she's little, low an squatty
She's built right down on the ground
(A little cute devil)
She's little, low an squatty
She's built right down on the ground
Ev'rytime she kiss me
My love come tumblin' down

'Can't help it none'.

~
