21. INSANE CRAZY BLUES

(Now, let me hear it.)

I just now changed my notion to dive right in the ocean.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.
Everybody calls it love. Me and my little turtledove.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.
Why would I go insane standing out in the rain, yeah,
Thinking 'bout my baby? It don't mean a thing.
Everybody knows it well. Me and my little mademoiselle.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.

[Scat interlude.]

Everybody knows it's love. Me and my little turtledove.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.
Everybody knows this notion about that deep blue ocean.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.
I'm going insane still standing out in the rain. Yeah!
Spent a thousand dollars. It don't mean a thing.
Everybody knows it well. She's my little mademoiselle.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.

[Scat interlude.]

Everybody calls it love. Me and my little turtledove.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.
Everybody knows it well. She's my mixed-up mademoiselle.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.
I'm going insane, yeah, standing out in the rain.
Spent a thousand dollars. Yeah! It don't mean a thing.
Everybody knows it well. Oh, me and miss mademoiselle.
Ain't any use thinking on an insane crazy plan.

[As recorded by the Memphis Jug Band, 1934, Will Shade and Charlie Burse, vocalists.]
