SHAVE 'EM DRY Calaway & Williams Lucille Bogan w Walter Roland (piano) rec March 5th 1935 Chicago All o' you cat women, you better put on the walk, 'Cause I'm gonna get drunk and do my dirty talk. The monkey and the baboon, playin' in the grass, And the monkey got mad and whooped, "Yes yes yes!" Talkin' 'bout shave, mama's goin' to shave you dry, And if you don't know, mama's goin' to learn you how! You know a elephant, he's big and stout, He would be alright if it weren't for his snout! Talkin' 'bout shave, mama's gonna shave him dry, And if you don't know, I'm goin' to learn you how! I ain't rough, I ain't tough, I'm just goddam rollin', I like to strut my stuff! Talkin' 'bout shave 'em, mama's goin' to shave 'em dry, And if you don't know, mama's goin' to learn you how! I met a man lives down the way, He had so much money until I had to stay! I was talkin' 'bout shave 'em, mama's goin' to shave 'em dry, And if you don't know, mama's goin' to learn you how! If you meet your man and he tell you a lie, Just pull out your razor and shave him dry! Talkin' 'bout shave 'em, mama's goin' to shave him dry, 'Cause I don't want no man to tell me a dirty lie! note - version 2 (also rec by Lucille Bogan in 1935) is too obscene for publication!
