SHE KEEPS IT UP ALL THE TIME (Willie Jackson / Steve Lewis) Willie Jackson - 1926 I've got a wife, poor me Me and her can't agree She's crazy 'bout children, you see And that's the reason I'm gonna let my good Mama be I told her long ago I wouldn't stand for that no mo' But when I looked into her eyes I knowed right then there she's telling me some bad lies 'Cause, when she had the first child, I knowed that she was true Then she got twins, that made me kind o' blue The gal located triplets, I said, "Mama, that will do" But she keeps it up, keeps it up, doggone it She's got seventeen and still wants mo' Round our house looks just like Ringling Brothers show I plead on my soul, she's losin her pop-eyed mind 'Cause she keeps it up, keeps it up all the time (Piano Solo - Steve Lewis) When she had the first child, I knowed that she was true Then she got twins, that made me kind o' blue The gal located triplets, I said, "Mama, that will do" But she keeps it up, keeps it up, doggone it She got so many kids, she gave me the blues If they don't cry for biscuits, they cries for shoes I plead on my soul, she's loosin her pop-eyed mind 'Cause she keeps it up, keeps it up, all the time (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2017)
