SWEET SUBSTITUTE
Written by Jelly Roll Morton
As recorded by Jelly Roll Morton's Seven, 1940.

Sweet substitute, baby, baby,
Sweet substitute, lord, lord,
She tells me that she's mine, all mine,
Does anything I tell her 'cause love is blind.
She's got such lovin' ways, ways, ways,
She keeps my head in a daze.
My new recruit is mighty sweet and cute,
Because I'm crazy 'bout my substitute—I don't want no reg'lars—
Crazy 'bout my substitute.

SWEET SUBSTITUTE
Written by Jelly Roll Morton
As recorded by Dave Van Ronk on "Van Ronk Sings" (1961)

My gal went away,
And she knew I'd miss her night and day.
I just had to look around.
Ought to see what I found.

Sweet substitute,
Sweet substitute,
She always tells me that she's mine, all mine,
Does ev'rything I tell her; you know, love is blind.
She's got such lovin' ways,
Got my poor heart in a daze.
My new recruit is mighty sweet and cute,
You know, I'm crazy 'bout my substitute—I don't want no reg'lar—
Crazy 'bout my substitute.

REPEAT CHORUS.
