Sam, You're Just A Rat

by Lonnie Johnson
recording of February 9 1932, New York
from Matchbox (LP MSE1013),
copyright notice

Sam, you say you're my friend, but your ways I just don't like
Sam, you say you're my friend, but your ways I just don't like
Soon as I leave my home, you're tryin' to bite me in my back

Now Sam you're not my friend, and my home you better stop hangin' 'round
Sam you're not my friend, and my home you better stop hangin' 'round
'Cause I paid for your coffin, and I mean that you're graveyard bound

Sam, if you want a woman go get one, and let my wife alone
Sam, if you want a woman go get one, and let my wife alone
'Cause if I would catch you with my wife, you're hell bound sure as I'm born

Sam, a real man can't live happy, for no good man like you
Sam, a real man can't live happy, for no good man like you
You're tryin' to wreck my family, and some other man's family too

Sam, I thought you was my friend, I thought you just was swell
Sam, I thought you was my friend, I thought you was just too swell
Sam I wanna give you a vacation, that's a round-trip ticket to hell

She's Making Whoopie In Hell Tonight

by Lonnie Johnson
recording of January 7 1930, New York City
from originally released as OKeh 8558,
copyright notice

Baby, you been gone all day, set to make whoopee tonight
You been gone all day, set to make whoopee tonight
I'm gonna take my razor and cut your late hours, I will be serving you right

The undertaker's been here and gone, I gave him your height and size
Undertaker's been here and gone, I gave him your height and size
You'll be making whoopee with the devil in hell tomorrow night

You made me love you, just got me for your slave
You made me love you, just got me for your slave
And from now on you'll be making whoopee in your lonesome grave

Devil got ninety thousand women, he just needs one more
Devil got ninety thousand women, he just needs one more
You're just the type of woman for him, mama, you're booked out and bound to go

I told you, next time you go out, please carry your black dress along
Told you, next time you go out, please carry your black dress along
'Cause a coffin will be your present and hell will be your brand new home
