FLIP, FLOP AND FLY
(Charles E. Calhoun - Lou Willie Turner)
BIG JOE TURNER (Atlantic 1053, 1955)

Now, when I get the blues, I get me a rockin' chair
When I get the blues, I get me a rockin' chair
Well, the blues over dig me
Gonna rock right away from here
Now, when i get lonesome I jump on the telephone
Now, when i get lonesome I jump on the telephone
I call my babe, tell I'm on my way back home

Now, flip, flop, and fly, I don't care if I die
Now, flip, flop, and fly, I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me, don't ever say goodbye

Give me one more kiss, hold it on long-long time
Give me one more kiss, hold it on long-long time
Now, love me babe, 'til the feeling hits my head like wine
Here comes my babe, flashing a new gold tooth
Here comes my babe, flashing a new gold tooth
Well, she's so small, she can bumble in a pay phone booth

Now, flip, flop, and fly, I don't care if I die
Now, flip, flop, and fly, I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me, don't ever say goodbye

I'm like a Mississippi bullfrog sittin' on a hollow stump
I'm like a Mississippi bullfrog sittin' on a hollow stump
I got so many women, I don't know which way to jump

Now, flip, flop, and fly, I don't care if I die
Now, flip, flop, and fly, I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me, don't ever say goodbye
Oh my!
