Well, now got a li'l whiskey
You know we got a little a this, too
Big Bill an Sonny Boy
They play the blues for you

But c'mon baby n' take a walk
C'mon baby n' take a walk
C'mon baby n' take a walk
A-rock this old joint, now

A-c'mon babe
An let's go out an have some fun
A-go down a Mr. Sife
And get a quart-a 51

But c'mon baby an take a walk
C'mon baby an take a walk
C'mon baby an take a walk
A-rock this old joint, now

'Swing Bill! '

'Ooo-Wee! '

'Bill, now where you got your honey headin', now? '

(piano)

'Mr. John, I wanna see you have a good time'
'Give me some ivory, you know what I mean'

'Yeah, yeah'

Ev'ry morn' before breakfast
I don't her awake from nine to ten
Lacey, look 'cross the table
An I have a quart of 51, again

But c'mon baby take a walk with me
C'mon baby n' take a walk
C'mon baby n' take a walk
Around this old joint, now

I drink a quart in the mo'nin
I drink a quart late at night
If I don't get a quart three times a day
I don't sleep right

But c'mon baby an take a walk
C'mon baby n' take a walk with me
C'mon baby n' take a walk
Around this old joint, now

'Come on Mr. & Mrs. Bass Bob, Joe you got it'

'Yes, shake-shake-shake-shake'

'That's why you got your pocket always hidden'

'Bill, now let me blow my blues a little'

(harp & instrumental to end)
