PEARL HARBOR BLUES (Peter J. Clayton) Dr. Clayton - 1942 Champion Jack Dupree - 1960 December the seventh Nineteen hundred and forty one On December the seventh Nineteen hundred and forty one The Japanese flew over Pearl Harbor Droppin' bombs by the ton The Japanese is so ungrateful Just like a stray dog on the street Yes, the Japanese is ungrateful Like a stray dog on the street Well, he'll bite the hand that feeds him Soon as he get enough to eat Some say the Japanese is hard fighters But any dummy ought to know Some say the Japanese is hard fighters But any dummy ought to know Even a rattlesnake won't bite you in your back He will warn you before he strikes his blow I turned on my radio And I heard mister Roosevelt say I turned on my radio And I heard mister Roosevelt say We wanted to stay out of Europe and Asia But now we all got a debt to pay We even sold the Japanese brass and scrap iron And it makes my blood boil in the vein We sold the Japanese brass and scrap iron And it makes my blood boil in the vein 'Cause they made bombs and shells out of it And they dropped it on Pearl Harbor just like rain (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 1960)
