SHE KEPT ON SITTIN' ON IT ALL THE TIME Henry Bernard / L Mann as recorded by Wynonie Harris 1949 Old maid, old maid, stop actin' like a baby child, Old maid, old maid, stop actin' like a baby child, You waited till you got sixty three before you started runnin' wild! Oh, I'm lookin' for a gal, she's got to be young and neat, Well, I'm lookin' for a gal, she's got to be young and neat; What good is your stove if it don't give out no heat! Well, you had your chance For love and romance, But you let it pass you by, 'Cause when you were ten, You used to run from men, You kept on sittin' on it all the time! When you was fifteen, You was a natural queen, But you kept on sittin' on it all the time! When you was twenty two, You didn't know what to do! When you was twenty five, You thought about that jive, But you kept on sittin' on it all the time, You kept on sittin' on it all the time! When you was thirty one, You was hot as the sun, You kept on sittin' on it all the time! When you was thirty five, You was glad to be alive! When you was thirty eight, It still wasn't too late! But you kept on sittin' on it all the time, You kept on sittin' on it all the time! When you was forty four, Men was still knockin' at your door! You kept on sittin' on it all the time! When you was forty nine, You changed your mind! When you was fifty two, You still knew what to do! But you kept on sittin' on it all the time, You kept on sittin' on it all the time! Now you're sixty three, You're too old for me! So keep on sittin' on it all the time! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2013)
