Now she wants...a butter and egg man From way out in the West She wants somebody...who's workin' all day So she's got money...when she wants to play Now pretty clothes...they'll never be mine But what she told me the other day I hope she don't change her mind Now she wants...a butter and egg man A great big butter and egg man From way down South ***************** BIG BUTTER AND EGG MAN (Louis Armstrong & May Alix) as rec by Louis Armstrong & May Alix w Louis Armstrong & his Hot Five Nov 16th 1926 Chicago [ma] I want a butter and egg man, Away out in the west, 'Cause I'm getting tired of working all day, I want somebody who wants to me to play! Pretty clothes have never been mine, But if my dreams come true, some sun's gonna shine, 'Cause I want a butter and egg man; Won't some great big butter and egg man want me? [la] Yeah here, now momma, I'm you big butter and egg man, But I'm different, honey, but I'm from way down in the south. Now listen baby, I'll buy you all the pretty things that you think you need, And as long as I can keep this cornet up to my mouth, Oh, I'll play you a little minor in G, And if you say it's necessary baby, why I'll even hit high C! (ha-ha-ha-ha) 'Cause I'm your big butter and egg man, (come here baby, kiss me) Big butter and egg man from way down south. [ma] Pretty clothes have never been mine, But if my dreams come true, some sun's gonna shine! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - May 2012)
