(DOWN AT) PAPA JOE'S (Jerry Smith) Dixie Belles - 1963 Also recorded by: The Coasters; Jo Ann Castle. (Laughter & jangly piano) Say, there's a place in New Orleans That serves fried chicken with turnip greens Crawfish bisque that'll treat you right And Papa Joe plays there ev'ry night A little dark haired beauty says "Step right in" And you can bet a full dollar she's be yo' friend And ev'rybody there has a toler'ble time Down at Papa Joe's (Instrumental Break) Papa Joe's got a swingin' band You can rock and roll to Dixieland The customers knows it's the place to go Down at Papa Joe's (Piano Break) A little waitress comes to set you down She's got the best frog legs in town There's a welcome sign hangin' on the door So don't you be afraid to ask for more Now the only time Joe's closed at night Is when the Police come and turns out the light They get a little mad 'cause they don't fight Down at Papa Joes (Instrumental Break) It's thicker than fleas on a monkey's back But the folks down there, they like it like that They live it up and they all come back Down at Papa Joes (Laughter & jangly piano...........FADE) (Transcribed by Cookie, Carlene Bogle, & Mel Priddle - August 2004)
