YOU'VE GOT TO BEAT ME TO KEEP ME (Porter Grainger) Trixie Smith & Her Down Home Syncopators - 1925 I know a gal, peculiar gal, her name is Susie-Anne She raises sand to beat the band, to aggravate her man He totes knives and pistols, just to keep in trim And when her man ain't knockin' her down This is what she says to him You've got to beat me to keep me 'Cause mama loves a hard boiled man So don't you let no man cheat me If he's got a good right hand Beat me up for breakfast, knock me down for tea Black my eye for supper, then you're pleasin' me You've got to beat me to keep me 'Cause mama loves a hard boiled man Mama don't want no diamond rings And she don't want no swell clothes Flail me daddy til it stings Across my mouth and nose I don't want no hug and kiss I don't want no love and smile Beat me with your hand or fist Papa, like I was your child You've got to beat me to keep me 'Cause mama loves a hard boiled man So don't you let no man cheat me If he's got a good right hand Come down in my kitchen, leave all ???? and ???? Beat me to a frazzle with your skillets, pots and pans You will beat me to keep me 'Cause mama loves a hard boiled man (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2012)
