Cadillacs – Please Mr. Johnson lyrics

(piano & instrumental)

Our pockets are empty
We are broke
We ain't got a dime
To buy a Coke

Can we have some credit
At the candy store?
(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, no mo'!)

Wash the windows
We will mop
If you'll give us two
Red lollipops

We'll keep all the alley cats
Out-a the store
(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, no mo'!)

Offer our service
Ev'ryday after school
Work for you
Instead of playin' pool

Clean up the store
So Spic and Span
(Please Mr. Johnson
Be a real nice man?)

Do our best
At your command
If you let us work
Behind the candy stand

When you go shoppin'
We will watch the store
(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, a-no mo'!)

(sax, guitar & instrumental)

Offer our service
Ev'ryday after school
Work for you
Instead of playin' pool

Clean up the store
So Spic and Span
(Please Mr. Johnson
Be a real nice man?)

Do our best
At your command
If you let us work
Behind the candy stand

When you go shoppin'
We will watch the store
(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, a-no mo'!)

Do our best
At your command
If you let us work
Behind the candy stand

When you go shoppin'
We will watch the store
(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, a-no mo'!)

(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, a-no more!)

(Please Mr. Johnson?
Uh-uh, I said, no mo'!)
