SIX FEET OF PAPA (Art Sizemore / Billy Moll) Aileen Stanley - 1926 Annette Hanshaw - 1926 Eric Pearse & His Astoria band - 1926 Gertrude Dwyer - 1926 Also recorded by: Dorothy Loudon; Barbara Rosene. As recorded by AILEEN STANLEY: I wasn't quick at arithmatic when I went to school Adding and subtraction drove me to distraction I never made the seventh grade, but still I'm not a fool For there's one little sum at which I'm not so dumb Add six feet of Papa, five feet of Mama You get eleven, but I get heaven For the six feet of Papa belongs to me If you think I'm lyin', try multiplyin' Six feet of blisses times fifty kisses Ev'ry night we're rehearsin' the answer you see I've had sweeties four-foot-four Now I've got me two feet more Does he thrill me through and through You can bet your boots he do Add six feet of Papa, five feet of Mama You get eleven, but I get heaven For the six feet of Papa belong to me I never knew that two and two added up made four Teacher used to scold me, never thought he told me I never passed a single class, less I learned more But there's one problem now that can't fool me no how Add six feet of Papa, five feet of Mama You get eleven, but I get heaven For the six feet of Papa belongs to me If you think I'm lyin', try multiplyin' Six feet of blisses times fifty kisses Ev'ry night we're rehearsin' the answer you see Matrimony problems, too They're the kind that I can do When the preacher's work is done We'll add two and carry one Add six feet of Papa to five feet of Mama You get eleven, but I get heaven For the six feet of Papa belongs to me Take a kiss, add a kiss You'll find out your answer's bliss We don't count our kisses, why 'Cause we can't just count that high Add six feet of Papa, five feet of Mama You get eleven, and I get heaven For the six feet of Papa belongs to me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2015)
