SITTIN' ON IT ALL THE TIME (Mann / Bernard) Wynonie Harris - 1949 Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson - 1949 Also recorded by: Brian Setzer Orch.; Band Of Oz. 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 Well, I'm lookin' for a gal, shes got to be young and neat Well, I'm lookin' for a gal, shes got to be young and neat What good is your stove if it don't give out no heat (Instrumental Break) 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 (But you kept on sittin' on it all the time) When you were fifteen, you was a nat'ral 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 (Instrumental Break) When you was thirty-five, you was glad to be alive When you were 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 (But 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 Mel Priddle - November 2015)
