McKinney's Cotton Pickers – Beedle-Um-Bum lyrics

Down in Memphis, Tennessee
Lives a girl named Simmy,
She's got a meat shop on the block;
She's always got the gimme.

Serves a meal with a tadpole heel,
Can't resist for trying;
Every time you pass her door,
Hear Miss Simmy cryin':

Oh, beedle-um-bum,
Come see me if you ain't had none,
She make a dumb man speak,
A lame man run,
Sure miss something if you ain't had none!

Oh, the beedle-um-bum,
Oh, the beedle-um-bum,
Got the best beedle-dum
Down in Tennessee!

Oh, that beedle-um-dum-bum,
Got that beedle-um-dum-bum,
