COTTON BLOSSOM (Oscar Hammerstein II / Jerome Kern) Vocal Ensemble (Stevedores) Here we all work on de Mississippi Here we all work while de white folks play, Loading up boots with de bales of cotton, Getting no rest till de Judgement Day. (Gals) Drop that bale and have some fun! There's a lot o' loving on de levee for you Y' work all day, y' get no fun We know something better for a fellow to do! (Stevedores and Gals) Here we all work on de Mississippi Here we all work while de white folks play Loading up boats with de bales of cotton Getting no rest till de Judgement Day. (Stevedores) Cotton Blossom, Cotton Blossom, Love to see you growing free. When they pack you on de levee You're a heavy load to me! (Stevedores and Gals) Cotton Blossom, Cotton Blossom, Love to see you growing wild On de levee, you're too heavy For this poor old child! (Beaux) What a pretty bevy! Ah, there! Ah, there! The fairest of the fair! To Southern beauty Every beau must bow! (Mincing Misses) How you love to flatter, You rogues! You rogues! Oh, goodness gracious! They're so flirtatious! You naughty fellows Seem to think you please us When you tease us so You're a reckless Lot we know! (Beaux) Little women, don't be timorous! You will find, acting thus Only makes a man more bold! These are not the days of old! See! The Show Boat, That's old Captain Andy's "Cotton Blossom" Will you go? Let me take you to the show! (Mincing Misses) 'Twill be delightful But to rightfully accept, I have to make mama Get permission from papa! (Beaux and Misses) Captain Andy has gathered a troupe In the grandest of drammers and jolly comedies, Stephen Baker, the handsomest leading man, And beautiful Julie Laverne as well! (Beaux) Cotton Blossom, Cotton Blossom Captain Andy's Floating Show! Thrills and laughter Concert after Everybody's sure to go! (Beaux and Misses) Cotton Blossom, Cotton Blossom Captain Andy's Floating Show! Thrills and laughter Concert after Get your girl and go! So get your girl and go!
