EVERY MAN TO HIS OWN PROFESSION Louis Jordan / Jack B Tennyson 1949 Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five rec 1949 When a farmer's farmin', let him raise his crop, When a woodman's choppin', let him have his chop, When a porter's scrubbin', let him have his mop, Every man to his own profession! Let a doctor tend to ease an achin' back, whoo yeah! Let a railway workman switch his railroad track, Let the laundry worker fill his laundry sack, Every man to his own profession! When a carpenter's sawin' on a piece of wood, Don't you be braggin' that you also could! He might hand you his saw with a wise old cough; You might start sawin' and saw your fingers off! When a school ma'am's teachin', let her teach her school, When it comes to women, don't you be no fool! When it's life in general, here's the golden rule, Every man to his own profession! When a carpenter's sawin' on a piece of wood, Don't you be braggin' that you also could! He might hand you his saw with a wise old cough, [cough]; You might start sawin' and saw your fingers off! When a school ma'am's teachin', let her teach her school, When it comes to women, don't you be no fool! When it's life in general, here's the golden rule, mmm, Every man to his own profession! So consult an expert if you don't wanna be hurt, Every man to his own profession! (Contributed by Peter Akers - October 2009)
