Bessie Smith – Oh Daddy Blues lyrics
Just like a flower I am fading away
The doctor call to see me most every day
But he don't do me no good, why?
Because I'm lonesome for you
And if you care for me
Then you will listen to my plea
Oh, daddy, look what you doin', look what you doin'
Oh, daddy, you with your foolin', think what you're losin'
All the little love I gave you
Is goin' to make you feel so awfully blue
When you miss me and long to kiss me
You'll curse the day that you ever quit me
Oh, daddy, think when you're all alone
You'll get so lonely just wait and see
But there will be someone else makin' love to me
Then daddy, daddy, you won't have no mama at all
Oh, daddy, look what you doin', look what you doin'
Oh, daddy, you and your foolin', think what you losin'
All the little love I gave you
Is goin' to make me feel so awfully blue
When you miss me, and long to kiss me
You'll curse the day that you ever quit me
Oh, daddy, think when you're all alone
You know that you are getting old
You'll miss the way I baked your jelly roll
And daddy, daddy, you won't have no mama at all
