Subject: Lyr Add: UGLY MAN BLUES (Ora Alexander)
As recorded by Ora Alexander, 1931.

My man is ugly, ugly as can be.
Lord, my man is ugly, ugly as can be,
But, Lord, he knows a thousand good things, what to do to me

When my medicines(?) is over and I don't know what to do, (2x)
He just shakes my ashes, put his ice(?) right up in my flue.

Ev'ry mornin' when I wake up, I'm happy as I can be, (2x)
'Cause my sweet rockin' stepdaddy done put that thing on me,

[scat verse]

With a man like my man, ain't no woman can't go wrong.
Lord, with a man like my man, no woman can't go wrong.
Because his feet is thin and bony and ….

Lord, Lord, Lord, my walls must be mighty thin. (2x)
Last night a woman heard me groanin', now my man she tried to win.

If anyone tries to win my man at all, (2x)
I'll cut out her ambition and nail it on the wall.
