Roosevelt Sykes – Dresser Drawer lyrics

[Spoken:]
'Round Christmas time
Ev'rybody buys a good friend a present of some kind
So, I bought mine a little old light present
I bought her a dresser

[Sings:]
Bought my baby a new dresser for Christmas
She lets me ramble all in her drawers
Bought my baby a new dresser for Christmas
She lets me ramble all in her drawers
Well, I may kinda wrinkle up her linen
But I'm only searchin' for her Santy Claus

She's got a streamlined dresser, man
And her legs stands kind of bow
Yes, she's got a streamlined dresser, man
Her legs stands kind of bow
Man, if I ever catch yo hands down in them drawers
You ain't gonna reach no mo
I'm 'on relieve you of yo grabbers

Well, I got a feelin'
I'll have to crush somebody's jaws
Yes, I got a sneaky feelin'
I'll have to crush somebody's jaws
I know my baby got a fine dresser
And you fellas wants to ramble in my baby's drawers
Mercy!

'Whoa, yeah ride' (right here)
'Ho, yeah' (another little one)
'My, my' (the end)

'My, my'
(higher there)
(alright)

Bought her a new dresser for Christmas
She lets me feel all around in her drawers
I bought her that new dresser for Christmas
She lets me put my hands all in her drawers
Well, I make her wrinkle up her linen
But I puts my hands right on her Santy Claus.

Slap dab in the middle, man!
