TAKE YOUR FINGERS OFF IT

cho: Take your fingers off it, and don't you dare touch it,
You know it don't belong to you.
Take your fingers off it, and don't you dare touch it,
You know it don't belong to you.
You know it's sad to see a woman, an extra good 'un'
Holdin' back on her sugar puddin',
Take your fingers off it, and don't you dare touch it,
You know it don't belong to you.

Two old maids a-laying in bed,
One turned over toward the other and said,
Take your fingers off it, don't you dare touch it,
You know it don't belong to you.
A nickel is a nickel, a dime is a dime
A house full of children, none of them's mine
Take your fingers etc.

I may be little and I may be thin
But I'm an awful good daddy for the shape I'm in.
Take your fingers etc.
I never been to heaven but I been told,
St. Peter taught the angels how to jelly roll.
Take your fingers etc.

Big fish, little fish swimming in the water,
Come back here, man, and marry my daughter.
Take your fingers etc.

There's just one thing that I could never understand,
Why a bow-legged woman likes a knock-kneed man.
Take your fingers etc.
