James Cotton - The Creeper
James Cotton - Don't start me talking
Well, I'm goin' down to Rosie's, stop at Fannie Mae's
Gonna tell Fannie what I heard, her boyfriend say
Don't start me to talkin', I'll tell her everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', 'cause somebody's got to go
Jack give his wife two dollars, go downtown and get some margarine1
Gets out on the streets, ol' George stopped her
He knocked her down, and blackened her eye
She gets back home, tell her husband a lie
Don't start me to talkin, I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go
She borrowed some money, go to the beauty shop
Jim honked his horn, she begin to stop
She said, "Take me, baby," around the block,
I'm goin to the beauty shop, where I can get my hair sock2"
Don't start me to talkin', I'll tell everything I know
Well, to break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go
Note 1: John W. Harrelson suggest that instead of "margarine" it should read "market". He says it's southern dialect, "go down to the store and get my market(ing) done". Thanks John;
Note 2: sock, when black men (usta)get their hair "processed" (see also John Lee Hooker's song Process) it required a tight wrapping (every night for protection in sleep). A hair sock did the job... Thanks to John W. Harrelson again.
