Bogus Ben Covington Boodle-de-dum Blues (C-4630) Br 7121

I was down in the alley
Trying to sell my coal today
I was down in the alley
Trying to sell my coal today
And a woman run out and hollar
Geh-t my mule away
She wanted to Boodely Bum Bum
She hollahed Boodely Bum Bum
Ah Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum Bum

I went with Ice Man Jackson
He sold his ice and coal
I went with Ice Man Jackson
He sold his ice and coal
But he blowed in all his money
Buy-in sweet jelly roll
He wanted to Boodley Bum Bum
Awwww Boodley Bum Bum
Jes had to Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum Bum

We stopped on 18 and Federal
Just two blocks west of State
Stopped on 18 and Federal
Just two blocks west of State
And when he got up under that vi-dockt
Well, he would not wait
He had to Boodley Bum Bum
Awwww Boodley Bum Bum
Ah Boo
Dloo
Boodley Bum Bum

She said money don't excite me
And that we all know well
She said money don't excite me
And that we all know well
But Jackson showed her fifty dollahs
And she almost fell
She wanted to Boodley Bum Bum
Jes had to Boodley Bum Bum
Awwww Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum Bum

She had wind like a Greyhound
And she sho could run
She had wind like a Greyhound
And she sho could run
And Jackson got on like a reindeer
Annnnd he runned her some
Ah Boodley Bum Bum
Oh Boodley Bum Bum
It was a Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum
Boodley Bum Bum
