You May Leave, But This Will Bring You Back

 

 

A népdal Boll Weevil-verzióját a Memphis Jug Band változata ihlette (amennyiben viszonylag szemérmetlen lopás esetében beszélhetünk ilyesmiről). A szöveg helyenként olyan obszcén, hogy nem is merek belemenni.

You May Leave, But This Will Bring You Back

 

My father was a jockey, learned me to ride behind,

You knowbout that I got a job anyhow,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.

 

I walked around the corner to the peanut stand,

My girl got stuck on the peanut man,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.

 

I’m satisfied, satisfied,

My todalo shaker by my side,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.

 

You quit me pretty mama ‘cause you couldn’t be my boss,

But a rolling stone don’t gather no moss,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.

 

Just a nickle’s worth of meal, a dime’s worth of lard

Will buy everything in Geoff Burns’ yard,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.

 

 

I’m built like a tadpole, shaped like a frog,

When I go with your woman she’ll holler “hot dog”,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.

 

A horse and a flea and two little mice

Are down in the cellar shooting high dice,

You may leave, but this will bring you back.
