WHEN A ST. LOUIS WOMAN COMES DOWN TO NEW ORLEANS >From the film "Belle Of The Nineties" (1934) (Music: Arthur Johnston / Lyrics: Sam Coslow) Mae West (Film Soundtrack) - 1934 When a St. Louis woman comes down to New Orleans When a St. Louis woman comes down to New Orleans She'll be wearin' more diamonds than Uncle Sam's got Marines Had a good man in Memphis, but the fool he laid down and died Oh, I had a good man in Memphis, but the fool he laid down and died Because his old woman, she hung a knife in his side, ooh Now he was her man, but he came to see me sometimes Oh, I said he was her man, but he came to see me sometimes I live six flights up and he sure was willin' to climb When it came to romancing, the man he sure knew how, ooh But that narrow minded woman, she had a sort of vow And so you see he's no good to either one of is now So, bring on your Papas from down in New Orleans Oh, bring on those fancy lovin' Papas you got in New Orleans 'Cause I just came from Missouri, I guess you know what that means (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2013)
