ROUGH AND READY MAN Alberta Hunter Folks I'm looking for a worker …not you I want an extra special kind When I get the type of man I want I know I'm gonna have a little time Got to be ambitious, a man that loves to work I don't want no man that's lazy, no man that tries to shirk I want a two-fisted, double-jointed, rough and ready man I want a hard working, no shirking, good and steady man Now he can be a backwards farmer or a digger in a ditch He can even drive a garbage wagon Honey it don't make no difference which Long as he's a two-fisted (oh please), double-jointed, rough and ready man I want a hard working, no shirking, good and steady man Now I don't have to have a fat man And neither must he be too thin And I sure don't want no guy Got to get all pepped up on gin And if he doesn't like soap and water Don't let that worry you …we'll get along But honey I want a man like Joe Louis You know… a man that's big and strong I want a two-fisted, double-jointed, rough and ready man I want a hard working, no shirking, good and steady man Now he can be knock-kneed, box-ankled He can even have frog-eyes But that won't make a bit of difference… if he's Ok… otherwise I want a two-fisted, double-jointed, rough and ready man I want a hard working, no shirking, good and steady man When he snores I want the force to blow the bedclothes to the floor And the breezes from his wheezes to knock the padlock off the door When I come home some morning all dressed up like Esther's horse I want him to grab me and tear all of my clothes, just to let me know who's boss I want a two-fisted, double-jointed, rough and ready man I want a hard working, no shirking, good and steady man I want a man who won't let his children play with neither dog nor cat But will drag in a skunk or a lion and say "Here, you kids, play with that" I want a two-fisted, double-jointed, rough and ready man Is that clear to you? Rough and ready man (Contributed by Philip Graves)
