YOU CAN'T GET THAT NO MORE Louis Jordan (m) Sam Theard (l) Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five rec 1945 I went out to get some groceries the other day From my neighbourhood grocery store, And before I could open my mouth,m The grocery man said "No!"; Can't get that no more, You can't get that no more, He said, "I sold all I had the other day It ain't me Mister Jordan, Mister O P A! You just can't get it! You gotta do with what you got! Ain't gonna have no more for the duration, son! Be careful wit' your food! The hep cats used to stand on the corner In their zoot suits, all lookin' cute! But things is very different now, Since Uncle Sam has some Japs to shoot! Uh-huh! You can't do that no more! Uh-huh! You can't do that no more! No more standin' on the corners day and night, 'Cause Uncle Sam says you got to work or you got to fight! So you can't do that no more, No, you can't do that no more! The glamour gals have stopped glamourisin', They're workin' in defence plants, wearin' slacks; And some of the fine chicks is cuttin' out every day, Joinin' the wheels and the spars and the wax. Now fellas, you can't get that no more, No no, you can't get it no more! Fellas, you can't jive these girls like you used to do, So you can't do that no more, No, you can't do that no more! The girls used to wake up every mornin' and say, "Lord, send me a handsome man, One that's physically fit!", But Uncle Sam has got all o' them now, And the gals has got to take just what they can get! Uh-huh girls, you can't get that no more, No no, you can't get that no more! Girls, you can't be particular, you got to take what's left, Even them worn out 3A's or them beat-up 4F's! You just can't get it no more, No, you can't get that no more! 'Cause some of 'em is makin' more money than you! (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2010)
