Lyrics

I went out to get some groceries the other day
From my neighborhood grocery store
And before I could open my mouth
The grocery man said "No!"
"You can't get that no more!", that's what he said

"You can't get that no more."
He said, "I sold all I had the other day
It ain't me, Mr. Jordan, it's the OPA. You just can't get it
You gotta do with what you got. Ain't gonna have no more for the
Duration. Gotaa be careful with your food, son

The hep cats used to stand on the corner in their zoot suits
And them long chains hangin' down. All lookin' cute. But
Things is very different now, since Uncle Sam has got some Japs
To shoot. Uh, uh, the can't do that no more, no sir. They can't
Do that no more. No more standin' on the corners day and night, cause
Uncle Sam says that you got to work or you got to fight. So, they
Can't do that no more. No, you can't do that no more

You know the glamour gals has stopped glamorizin'
They workin' in defense plants, wearin' slacks. And some of the fine
Chicks is cuttin' out everyday. Joinin' the WAVs and the SPARs and the
WAAFs. Now fellas, you can't get that no more. Uh, uh, I'm tellin' you
Fellas, you just can't get it

You can't jive these girls like you used to do
Cause some of them is making more money than you
I'm tellin' you boys, you just can't get that no more
No, you can't get that no more

You know the girls used to wake up every morning and say, " Lord, send
Me a handsome man. One that's physically fit." But Uncle Sam's got all
Of them now, and the gals has got to take just what they can get
Uh, uh, girls, you can't get that no more
Ain't no need to giggle, girls, you just can't get it no more, that's all

Girls, you can't be particular
You gotta take what's left
Either them worn out 3A's or them beat up 4F's
That's all. you just can't get it no more
No, you can't get that no more
