Ugly Papa by Charley Lincoln

Ugly Papa - Charley Lincoln,
Spanish Tuning.

Once I was crazy 'bout a girl, heard the only talk about Jane
One day I met her father in the street, here's what he said to me, said
"I like you, big boy, just all right, but if I catch you with my daughter it's gon' be too tight."
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

Next day passed by, I've got the news, her mother 'n' father both was gone
My chance was so slim to see her, over there, I was goin'
We was sittin' in the room talkin' what we's gon' do, heard somebody push that middle door to
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

It was her mother and father, sister and brother, too
All have made a bogus move on you
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

Old man he jumped, he grabbed a gun
Son-of-a-gun said, "Don't you run!"
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

Old lady jumped in the hall, said, "Don't get rough,
'Cause I'm the best in town on struttin' my stuff."
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

Girl looked at me, begin to smile,
I looked at the window and I shed both lights
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

I coulda have stayed, made a little bluff,
The men enjoy to dine out, thanks enough
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long

I love that girl 'cause she's so neat,
I'm just wild about my pigmeat
REFRAIN: 'Twon't be long, I mean, 'twon't be long
