Who Done It?

This song is by The Harlem Hamfats and appears on the compilation album Harlem Hamfats Vol. 1: Hamfat Swing (1994).

Her mammy lied and her pappy too
Asked for the truth and she lied too

Who done it? Who done it?
Ain't no use in you lying, I know that you know

Say, Joe, hear that little cat playing the clarinet?
His name is Odell. Ask him, maybe he can tell you who done it

When I was hers, I was hers and a fool
I didn't do it when I could

Odell, who done it? (I don't know!)
Who done it? (Joe, I don't know)
Ain't no use in you lying, I know that you know

Well that's one little cat you couldn't get nothing out of
There' s another little old short cat, by the name of Horace, playing the piano

Ask him, maybe he can tell you who done it
I didn't know she was running about
When I found her she was sticking out

Horace, who done it? (I don't know!)
Who done it? (I don't know)
Ain't no use in you lying, I know that you know

There's another cat playing the guitar
Charlie, your own brother. Ask him?
He outta could tell you who done it

One thing's certain, you must understand
It wasn't me it was another man

Charlie, who done it? (I don't know)
Who done it? (I done told you I don't know)
Ain't no use in you lying, I know that you know

Now listen, Joe, you're better known as Oh Red
But me, Kid Morand, don' t know nothing about what you said

Who done it? (We don't know!)
Who done it? (We don't know!)
Ain't no use in you lying, I know that you know
