THEY ALWAYS PICK ON ME (Lyrics: Stanley Murphy / Music: Harry Von Tilzer) Ada Jones - 1911 Mae Questal (as the voice of Betty Boop, feat. in the cartoon film "Minnie The Moocher") - 1932 Alice Faye (feat. in the film "Hello Frisco, Hello") - 1941 Tiny Time - 1969 When I was born, my Pa and Ma They looked at me and said, "Oh, pshaw!" The doctor said, "It's a girl, I think" And Pa went out and got a drink Then Ma said I looked just like Pa And Pa said I took after Ma Aunt Jane said I looked like a quince And I've been a stepchild ever since They always, always pick on me They never, never let me be I'm so very lonesome, awfully sad It's a long time since I've been glad But I know what I'll do by and by I'll eat some worms and then I'll die And when I'm gone, you wait and see They'll all be sorry that they picked on me My Ma put me to bed and said The angels watched me in the bed They wouldn't let things frighten me Then the angels started biting me. When my Ma sends me to the store I lose the change, then she gets sore I lost my cat and my bow-wow I think I'm losing something now They always, always pick on me They never, never let me be I'm so very lonesome, awfully sad It's a long time since I've been glad But I know what I'll do by and by I'll eat some worms and then I'll die And when I'm gone, you wait and see They'll all be sorry that they picked on me One morning just at four o'clock Somebody tried to pick our lock I knew 'twas Papa, sure as sin So I opened the door and let him in My Ma said, "What time is it, Pa?" "It's twelve o'clock," my Pa told Ma Just then the cuckoo cuckooed four And Pa made me cuckoo eight times more They always, always pick on me They never, never let me be I'm so very lonesome, awfully sad It's a long time since I've been glad But I know what I'll do by and by I'll eat some worms and then I'll die And when I'm gone, you wait and see They'll all be sorry that they picked on me ********** Different last chorus as recorded by ADA JONES: They always, always pick on me They never, never let me be I'm so very lonesome, awfully sad It's a long time since I've been glad But I know what I'll do, it's no joke I'll eat a frog and then I'll croak And when I'm gone, you wait and see They'll all be sorry that they picked on me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2011)
