SCRUB ME MAMA WITH A BOOGIE BEAT Don Raye 1940 as rec by The Andrews Sisters w Vic Schoen & his Orch Nov 14th 1940 also rec by- Will Bradley & his Band '40 Eduardo Almani & his Orch '45 In Harlem there's a little place where everyone goes To see the way a washerwoman washes her clothes. If you like boogie woogie rhythm, she's got a beat, Let the boogie woogie washerwoman give you a treat! On every afternoon at one the sessions begin, And all the boys from all the bands come down and sit in. They sit around and knock each other out when they play, While the boogie woogie washerwoman washes all day. Rubbley-ub-dub, that's just the way she rubs, Rubbley-ub-dub, that's just the way she scrubs, Rubbley-ub-dub, she wears out all her dubs, She rubs and rubs her knuckles right down to the nubs! Rubbley-ub-dub, that's how she kicks it off, Rubbley-ub-dub, she keeps it nice and soft, Rubbley-ub-dub, till someone hollers on, "Scrub me mama with a boogie beat!". You really ought to visit there if you've never been, It doesn't cost a penny, just come down and walk in. If you like boogie woogie rhythm, you'll get a treat, Let the boogie woogie washerwoman give you the beat! Rub rub rub rub, a-rubbin' all day, She's a-scrubbin' a boogie woogir rhythm all day! Scrub, rub, a-washin' all day, Scrub me mama with a boogie beat! Scrub me mama, scrub me clean, And let me dream till (scat). Rubbley-ub-dub, that's the way she scrubs, Rubs rubs rubs, rubbib' along, Singin' a baloogie woogie song. Toot-toot-toot-doodley-ah-dah! That's how she kicks it off, Ti-diddley-ah-hah! She keeps it nice and soft, Ti-diddley-ah-hah! To someone, all is all, Scrub me mama with a boogie beat! You really ought to visit there if you've never been, It doesn't cost a penny, just come down and walk in. If you like boogie woogie rhythm, you will get a treat, Let the boogie woogie washerwoman give you a treat! Scrub me mama with a boogie beat! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011)
