My wife and I lived all alone In a little log hut we called our own She loved gin and I loved rum I tell you what, we'd lots of fun Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee 'Tis you who makes my friends my foes 'Tis you who makes me wear old clothes Here you are, so near my nose Tip her up and down she goes Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee When I go toiling on my farm I take a little brown jug under my arm I place it under a shady tree Little brown jug, 'tis you and me Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee If all the folks in Adam's race Were gathered together in one place Then I'd prepare to shed a tear Before I'd part from you, my dear Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee If I'd a cow that gave such milk I'd clothe here in the finest silk I'd feed her on the choicest hay And milk her forty times a day Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee The rose is red, my nose is, too The violet's blue and so are you And yet I guess before I stop We'd better take another drop Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, you and me Little brown jug, don't I love thee ******************** As recorded by CONNIE HAINES: Ho, ho, ho, you and me Little brown jug how I love thee Ho, ho, ho, you and me Little brown jug how I love thee Hoo, hoo, little brown jug Hoo, hoo, how I love thee I'm so happy, I'm so gay And I'm gonna stay this way I love coffee, I love tea Little brown jug, oh, I love thee Roses red, violets blue Sugar's sweet and so are you Oh, jitterbug Let's cut a rug Oh, sugar plum When I was a kid on my pappy's knee My daddy said, "Baby, listen to me Jugs may come, jugs may go But here's one jug you ought to know" Little brown jug, little brown jug Who wouldn't like my little brown jug Say there, Johnny, you like this key Come on now and swing for me (Instrumental Break) Say, that sure was solid jive That will keep the place alive If the brass would like to try My little brown jug won't pass you by (Instrumental Break) Now that you've all had your fling Let me try to swing this thing Jug, jug, oh, jug, jug Oh, jug, jug Who's got my jug I want my jug Must have my little brown jug ******************** As performed by studio singers in the 1948 cartoon film "Little Brown Jug", with new lyrics by Buddy Kaye: You bring ginger, I'll bring spice You bring tumblers, I'll bring ice You bring Suzy, I'll bring Bess Together we'll bring happiness Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me Rich men look for added wealth Sick men look for lasting health And a common place they look Is in a jigger or a hook Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me Happy Herbert's nose was red Derby falling from his head Walking zig-zag undisturbed Can you guess what was wrong with Herb Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me Here's the tale of Bessie Berch Who was left waiting at the church All because the happy groom Began to celebrate too soon Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me I like perfumes from Normandy I like Swiss cheese and Chinese tea I even like a Persian rug If on it stands a little jug Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me Fellows caught in swinging doors Faces on the bar room floors Old men full of pep and zing And it all comes from just one thing Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me Once there was a guy named Bill He was strong, but had no will Friday pay was his big thrill 'Cause Saturday found dear old Bill singing Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee Little brown jug how I love thee Fiddle-dum and fiddle-dee Little brown jug, oh, you're for me ******************** As recorded by HYLO BROWN: My wife and I lived all alone In a little brown hut we called our own She likes coffee, I like tea We're as happy as we can be Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee When I go out on the farm The little brown jug is under my arm Set it down in the shade of a tree The little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee Me and my wife and a stump-tailed dog Crossed the creek on a hick'ry log My wife fell in and stuck in the mud But I held to my little brown jug Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee Me and my wife went out on the farm The little brown jug in under my arm My foot slipped and I fell I busted the little brown jug all to pieces Ha, ha, ha, you and me The little brown jug, don't I love thee Ha, ha, ha, hee, hee, hee The little brown jug, don't I love thee (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2015)
