CAUGHT US DOING IT

A "single entendre" song from the prohibition era recorded in several versions
by several versions of  THE HOKUM BOYS


I went to see my gal last night, a dainty little (G7)miss,
I took her in the parlour, and gave to her a (C)kiss.
The moon shone through the window, the stars were hanging (G7)low,
and as I moved to kiss her, her pa came through the (C)door.

And he caught us doing it, Hi Hi, ,caught us doing it, Hi Hi (G7)Hi,
caught us doing it (Gdim7)(doing what) he (G7)caught us making (C)love.

Me and my girl went out last night, we were walking in the park,
my feelings seemed to tell me to kiss her in the dark.
I put my arms around her, and pressed her lips on mine,
when a big policeman lit his lamp and a chill went down my spine.

And he caught us doing it, Hi Hi, caught us doing it, Hi Hi Hi,
caught us doing it (doing what) he caught us making love.

My partner's gal lives across the street, she's long and tall and thin
She hugs and kisses very sweet whenever he walks in.
He went to see her the other night and everything was swell
then her husband walked in through the door and he gave my buddy hell

And he caught them doing it, Hi Hi, caught them doing it, Hi Hi Hi,
caught them doing it (doing what) he caught them making love.

Pa Williams lives down on the side, he runs a liquor still
and every time you pass his door he's boiling brews to kill
Someone knocked on his back door, said make it corn or gin,
Pa thought that they were customers but two coppers they walked in

And they caught him doing it, Hi Hi, caught him doing it, Hi Hi Hi,
caught him doing it (doing what) they caught him making booze

They took him to the county jail, and threw him in a cell,
They said don't worry about the trial the judge will treat you well
Next morning when he came to trial the judge was feeling fine
He said "boy I'm going to be light on you I'm going to give you ninety-nine"

And now he's doing it, Hi Hi, now he's doing it, Hi Hi Hi
now he's doing it (doing what) now he's doing time
