WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU? Shand / Lewis as rec by Albinia Jones 1940's also rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Chick Webb's Orch '40 He says he's gonna love me until the day I die, He says he's gonna love me until the day I die, But I bet when I'm gone that man won't even cry! Baby baby, what's the matter with you? Baby baby, what's the matter with you? You've been takin' all my lovin' and all my money too! I'd rather see my coffin roll in through my door, I'd rather see my coffin roll in through my door, Than the yama man say that he don't want me no more! Oh lawdy pretty papa, what you tryin' to do to me? Oh lawdy pretty papa, what you tryin' to do to me? I've been treatin' you fine, can't stand this misery! Baby, when I die bury me in the sea, Baby, when I die bury me in the sea, So the fishes and the whales will have a ball full of me! Baby, when I die please don't wear no black, Baby, when I die please don't wear no black, 'Cause if you do, baby, my ghost'll come creepin' back! (Contributed by Peter Akers - June 2010)
