I've just finished listening to a 30 min programme on BBC Radio 4 entitled
"King Size Papas and Mighty Tight Women" - a celebration of the use of double entrendre (and a rare example of "single" entendre too) in 1920's and 1930's blues music.

Should be available on BBC Radio 4 Listen Again
as "Choice of the Day" - well worth a listen (not for the prudish!)

Thanks for that! Hokum is a sadly neglected genre. Check out the Hokum Boys on the Document label, and the Famous Hokum Boys on Wolf.
Then there are some compilations: "Raunchy Business - Hot Nuts and Lollipops", "Bed Spring Poker - Meat In Motion 1926-1951", and "She's Your Cook But She Burns My Bread Sometimes".
Jamaican Mento covers the same ground: see Boogu Yagga Gal on the Interstate Heritage label.
Shake that boodle-um!

Subject: RE: Dirty Blues, double entendre in song
From: Genie

Double entendre?
You mean like "Mama's Got A Squeeze Box, Daddy Never Sleeps At Night?"
OK, that's not "blues,"

and neither is "Baby, Let Me Bang Your Box" (as in "Let me play your guitar") by "The Hot Nuts." But jazz/pop/country/folk/blues suggestive (wink wink nudge nudge Know what I mean?) lyrics are a wonderful subset of the music of us "folks."

Ruth Brown just passed away this last year (or so), and she had a wonderful song about an "Easy Chair," in which she proclaimed:
"If I can't sell it, I'm gon' keep settin' on it.
I ain't gon' give it away."

Wunnerful!

Hi Fun/Music lovers,looking for a song "Nuts" sung by George Melly. All i've got of this is: Chorus    Nuts hot nuts get em from your peanut man
                               Nuts red hot nuts get em while you can
                                                                     
                               I know a man six foot tall
                               Hadn't got no nuts at all, i said

                               Nuts hot nuts get em from your peanut man

Here's a link to the Melly version on youtube: Nuts.

I've got the lyrics from his version written down, but I can't lay my hands on them at the moment (I'm about to go out). If you're still looking later, I'll try and post them.

Versions have been posted on Mudcat here: Get 'Em From The Peanut Man (Hot Nuts)

There's a CD called Copulatin' Blues available. It's blues about sex from the 30s, all full of double entendre and at least one very frank single entendre. Lots of good early blues even if you don't listen to the words.
