Subject: Lyr Add: MY HANDY MAN (from Ethel Waters)
From: GUEST,deneicy
Date: 14 Nov 11 - 09:24 PM

for example...

Whoever said a good man was hard to find,
Postively, absolutely sure was blind;
I found the best that ever was,
Here's just some of the things he does:

He shakes my ashes, greases my griddle,
Churns my butter, strokes my fiddle;
My man is such a handy man!

He threads my needle, creams my wheat,
Heats my heater, chops my meat;
My man is such a handy man!

Don't care if you believe or not,
He sure is good to have around;
Why, when my furnace gets too hot,
He's right there to turn my damper down!

For everything he's got a scheme;
You ought to see his new starter that he uses on my machine;
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/e/ethel-waters-lyrics/my-handy-man-lyrics.html |]
My man is such a handy man!

He flaps my flapjacks, cleans off the table, He feeds the horses in my stable; My man is such a handy man!

He's God's gift!

Sometimes he's up long before dawn,
Busy trimming the rough edges off my lawn;
Oooh, you can't get away from it! He's such a handy man!

Never has a single thing to say,
While he's working hard;
I wish that you could see the way
He handles my front yard!

My ice don't get a chance to melt away,
He sees that I get that old fresh piece every day;
Lord, that man sure is such a handy man!

I guess that the most forthright lyrics would be Besssie Jackson's "Shave 'em Dry" e.g;

I got nipples on my titties big as the end of my thumb
I got something between my legs to make a dead man come
    etc etc
This version was unissued at the time of the less explicit version which went on sale.

Subject: Lyr Add: LONG JOHN BLUES (Dinah Washington)
From: BTNG
Date: 15 Nov 11 - 09:58 AM

Dinah Washington recorded this ditty about "her dentist":

LONG JOHN BLUES

I've got a dentist who's over seven feet tall.
Yes, I've got a dentist who's over seven feet tall.
Long John they call him, and he answers ev'ry call.

Well, I went to Long John's office and told him the pain was killin'.
Yes, I went to Long John's office and told him the pain was killin'.
He told me not to worry, that my cavity just needed fillin'.

He said, "When I start drillin', I'll have to give you novocaine.
Yes, when I start drillin', I'll have to give you novocaine,
'Cause ev'ry woman just can't stand the pain."

He took out his trusted drill
And he told me to open wide.
He said he wouldn't hurt me,
But he'd fill my hole inside.
Long John, Long John, you've got that golden touch.
You thrill me when you drill me, and I need you very much.

When he got through, he said, "Baby, that will cost you ten."
Yes, when he got through, he said, "That will cost you ten.
Six months from now, come back and see me again."

Say, you're supposed to see your dentist
'Bout twice a year, that's right,
But I think I feel it bobbin'.
Yes, I'll go back there tonight.
Long John, Long John, don't ever move away.
Say, I hope I keep on achin' so I can see you ev'ry day.

She also recorded a song called "Big Long Sliding Thing", supposedly about a trombonist.
