Katie King she had a diamond ring And it caused her lots of woe Now who would be the lucky one to get it Well all the fellahs wanted to know Red Cap called on her one night Saw the ring and lost his head But when he went to view it He stuck his finger through it And this is what she loudly said.... Man, take your fingers off it Now don't you try to touch it 'Cause it don't belong to you There's no need to crave it 'Cause mama's gonna save it For the man whose love is true Boy, try and find something like it See if you won't fail Papa you can't buy it 'cause it ain't for sale Now take your fingers off it And don't you dare to touch it 'Cause it don't belong to you (Instrumental Break) I said take your fingers off it And don't you dare to touch it 'Cause it don't belong to you Well there's no need to crave it 'Cause Mama's gonna save it For the man whose love is true Boy, try and find something like it See if you won't fail Papa you can't buy it cause it ain't for sale You gotta take your fingers off it And don't you dare to touch it 'Cause it don't belong to you You hear me tellin' you, man No, it don't belong to you ************************** ALTERNATE CHORUS: Take your fingers off it, keep your big mitts down Take your fingers off it, keep your big mitts down Take your fingers off it, you know you can't touch it You know it don't belong to you ************************** ALTERNATE VERSION: You know it's sad to see a woman, an extra good'n Holdin' back on her sugar puddin' Take your fingers off it and don't you dare touch it You know it don't be long to you Two old maids a-layin' in bed One turned over toward the other and said Take your fingers off it, don't you dare touch it You know it don't belong to you A nickel is a nickel, a dime is a dime A house full of children, none of them's mine Take your fingers off it and don't you dare touch it You know it don't belong to you I may be little and I may be thin But I'm an awful good Daddy for the shape I'm in Take your fingers off it and don't you dare touch it You know it don't belong to you I never been to Heaven, but I been told St. Peter taught the angels how to jelly roll Take your fingers off it and don't you dare touch it You know it don't belong to you Big fish, little fish, swimmin'g in the water Come back here, man, and marry my daughter Take your fingers off it and don't you dare touch it You know it don't belong to you There's just one thing that I could never understand Why a bow-legged woman likes a knock-kneed man Take your fingers off it and don't you dare touch it You know it don't belong to you ***************************
