( Bessie Smith )

When I wasn't nothing but a child
When I wasn't nothing but a child
All you men tried to drive me wild

Now I'm, now I'm growing old
Now, now I'm growing old
And I've got what it takes to get all of you men told

My mama says I'm reckless, my daddy says I'm wild
My mama says I'm reckless, my daddy says I'm wild
I ain't good looking but I'm somebody's angel child

Daddy, mama wants some loving
Daddy, mama need some hugging
Darn it pretty papa
Mama wants some lovin' I vow
Darn pretty papa
Mama wants some lovin' right now
