SOFT PEDAL BLUES Bessie Smith Bessie Smith & her Blue Boys rec May 14th 1925 New York There's a lady in our neighbourhood who runs a buffet flat, And when she gives a party, she knows just what she's at! You give a dance, say Friday night, that was to last till one, But when the time was almost up, the fun had just begun! But she walks into the romm, and yells to the crowd, "Have all the fun, ladies and gentlemen, but don't make it too loud!". Oh play it. Mr Leader Man, play it all night long, I like the words and music you give in a song; How it moans away, It's nearly break of day, Early in the morn', So put that soft pedal on! I'm drunk and full of fun, ya-hoo! Go and spread the news, 'Cause I've got them soft pedallin' blues. Early in the morn', So put that soft pedal on! I'm drunk and full of fun, ya-hoo! Go and spread the news, 'Cause I've got these soft pedallin' blues. Early in the mornin', yahoo! I got these soft pedallin' blues. (Contributed by Peter Akers - May 2009)
