When life seems full of clouds and rain And I am full of nothin' and pain Who soothes my thumping, bumping brain, uummm? Nobody! When winter comes with snow and sleet And me with hunger and cold feet Who says, "Here's twenty-five cents, go ahead and get somethin' to eat, go on why doncha"? Nobody! I ain't never done nothin' to nobody I ain't never done nothin' to nobody, no time So until I get somethin' from somebody sometime I'll never do nothin' for nobody, no time When I was in that railroad wreck And thought I'd cashed in my last check Who took the engine off my neck? Nobody! One time when things was lookin' bright I started to whittle on a stick one night Who cried out, "Stop now, that's dynamite"? Not a soul! I ain't never done nothin' to nobody I ain't never done nothin' to nobody, no time So until I get something from somebody, sometime I'll never do nothin' for nobody, no time (Transcribed from the Bert Williams recording by Mel Priddle - May 2007) *************************** As recorded by JIMMY DEAN: When life seems full of clouds and rain And I am filled with nought but pain Who soothes my thumpin' bumpin' brain........ Nobody! When winter comes with snow and sleet And me with hunger and cold feet Who says, "Here's two bits, go eat"........ Nobody! I ain't never done nothin' to nobody And I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time And until I get somethin' from somebody sometime I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time When I'm tryin' hard and schemin' a plan To do the very best I can Who says, "Look at that handsome man"........ Nobody! Well all day long things go amiss And I go home to find some bliss Who's waitin' there with a lovin' kiss........ Nobody! I ain't never done nothin' to nobody And I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time And until I get somethin' from somebody sometime I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time ************************** (Contributed by - May 2007)
