Memphis Slim — You Got To Help Me Some lyrics

Now you may be sweet little woman
As the apple on a tree
Don't want no woman to lay up
And depend on me

You got to help me some
Yes, you've got to help me some
Don't care what I do
Babe you've got to help me some

Now if I'm the Pullman porter, girl
You've got to be the maid
So when every Saturday come
We both can get paid

So you can help me some
Yes, I want you to help me some
I don't care what I do
Babe, you've got to help me some

Now when I go to bed little girl
And lay up beside-a you
Now if I shake the cover
Please try to shake it too

So you can help me some
Yes, I want you to help me some
And I don't care what I do
Babe you've got to help me some

Help me some little girl, help me some!
Now don't stand there and look at me like that,
C'mon and help me some!
Now that's better, yes, yes, yes, yes

Now there's no such thing as man and wife
Now-a-day
We're just called partners
So you can knock yourself a slave

So you can help me some
Yes, I want you to help me some
I don't care what I do
Babe, you've got to help me some
