NO SOAP, NO HOPE BLUES Richard Adler / Jerry Ross 1947 as rec by Anita O'Day w Roy Kral Earl Backus John Frigo & Bob Loinberg July 1952 Chicago I got a soap dish but I ain't got no soap, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a hope chest but I ain't got no hope, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a mouse trap, no mouse! I've got a household and no house! I've got the no soap, no hope, no mouse, no house blues! I've got a floor mat but I ain't got no floor, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a door knob but I ain't got no door, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a teapot, no tea! I've got a keyhole and no key! I've got the no floor, no door, no tea, no key blues! Oh, I've got a right to cry and do I cry? Why yes indeed! 'Cause I haven't got a lot And what I've got I sure don't need! I got a soap dish but I ain't got no soap, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a hope chest but I ain't got no hope, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a mouse trap, no mouse! I've got a household and no house! I've got the no soap, no hope, no mouse, no house blues! Got to lose! (scat) Oh, I've got a right to cry and do I cry? Why yes indeed! 'Cause I haven't got a lot And what I've got I sure don't need! I've got a soap dish but I ain't got no soap, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a hope chest but I ain't got no hope, ba-doodley-ah-da! I've got a mouse trap, no mouse! I've got a household and no house! I've got the no soap, no hope, no mouse, no house, And no floor, no door, no tea, no key blues! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2012)
