FOOLISH MAN BLUES Bessie Smith Bessie Smith rec Oct 27th 1927 New York Men sure deceitful, they getting worse every day, Lord, men sure deceitful, they gettin' worse every day, Actin' like a bunch o' women, they just gabbin', gabbin', gabbin' away! There's two things got me puzzled, there's two things I can't understand, There's two things got me puzzled, there's two things I can't understand, That's a mannish actin' woman an ' skippin' twistin' woman-actin' man! Lord, I used to love that man, he always made my poor heart ache, Yes, I love my man, he makes my poor heart ache, He's crooked as a corkscrew and evil as a copper-headed snake! I knew a certain man who spent years runnin' a poor girl down, I knew a certain man who spent a year runnin' a poor girl down, And when she let him kiss her, the fool blabbed it all over town.
