Well look here mama, see what you done done
Took all my money, put me on a bum

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

Now you wore your dresses above your knee
Slide some jelly to who you see

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

Gonna buy me a dog, I d' know
Keep these men from a jellyroll

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

I'm glad she said she loved me, don't see why she can
Caught her on a corner with another man

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

Now you talkin' 'bout jelly, you oughta see mine
Sellin' her jelly all over town

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

I had a good change not sleepin' by myself
Now she gone and got somebody else

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

Gonna build me a house out on the sea
So these women come to see poor me

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright

Me and my brother went around the bend
Had my gal, couldn't drive her in

But that'll be alright, oh no, but that'll be alright, oh no
Don't you hear me talkin' to ya, mama that'll be alright
