YOUR SOCKS DON'T MATCH Leon Carr / Leo Corday 1941 as rec by Bing Crosby & Louis Jordan w Louis Jordan & his Tympany Five also rec by- Bing Crosby '41 Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm '41 [bc] We heard a chick just the other day [lj] Cooling out her boyfriend in every way; [bc] She kep' on a-quonkin', full o' complaints, Like she expected folks to be saints. She insisted that he'd be neat, [lj] So this was her compaint complete; [bc] Report to the nation! I like the dinmple in your chin, I love the tricky way you grin, Still you ain't no kind o' catch, [lj] You know why, don't you? [bc] Tell 'em! [lj] Boy, your socks don't match! [bc] The teeth you have are pearly white, [lj] All both of 'em! [bc] Your lips are sweet and they pucker right, You're the kind to lift my latch, [lj] But doggone you, boy, your socks don't match! [bc] Proceed! [lj] The shoes you wear reveal your hose, One red and one bright blue! [bc] They're strangers, and I suppose You should introduce those two! [lj] You got two eyes of lovely blue, [bc] Continue, Lou! [lj] A pug nose I could go for too! Though you're the best of all the batch, [bc] Tain't no use son, 'cause your socks don't match! That's pretty blue Lou, but your socks don't match! Boy, your lisle is vile and your cotton is rotten! The shoes you wear reveal your hose, One red and one bright blue! They're strangers, and I suppose You should introduce those two! [lj] Oh, you got two eyes of lovely blue, [bc] Keep talkin'! [lj] A cute little pug nose I could go for too! [bc] How did Hope get in here? [lj] Though you're the best of all the batch, [bc] Tain't no use son, 'cause your socks don't match! [both] You got a red one, A blue one [bc] Ain't gona do son, [both] Your socks don't match! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - December 2011)
