I've recently found a fine album by Corey Harris and Henry Butler with a song they co-wrote called "If You Let A Man Kick You Once" that I'd love to sing, but even after repeated tries (even with slowed tape) I can't catch some words.

If anybody has the words in their entirety, I'd really appreciate you filling in the blanks.

First verse:
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX the Bible too
Turn right around and put a hex on you.

Fourth verse:
My jelly drinks no water, only whiskey or gin
Try to rock my XXXXXXX, kick your front teeth in

Sixth verse:
Got a nasty little pit bull, XXXXXXXXXXXX
You try to kick my pit, XXXXXXXXXX

Any help much appreciated.....

cheers,

david

I'm trying. Put a message up at Tweeds Blues asking for lyrics. Didn't find them with Google.

Thanks, Sorcha -- I'd already done the Google thing. Found lots of its on the song, but none with the lyrics. I'm still trying with the slowed tape, too, but so far I just can't catch them.

cheers,

david

Hear's what I hear:
first verse:
They gonna grin in your face, swear on the Bible too, turn right around and put a hex on you.

Sixth verse:
Got a nasty little pit bull, fuzzy little snout
You try it kick my pit, he'll bite your butt cheeks out.

Not sure if that's right, but that's what I hear!

Here's what I got from a couple of listens:


IF YOU LET A MAN KICK YOU ONCE
Corey Harris and Henry Butler

1.1 If you let a man kick you once, he'll kick you two-three times.
1.2 I met a man who wanted to kick me once, and had to change his mind.
1.3 They gonna grin in your face, swear on the Bible, too,
1.4 Turn right around and put a hex on you.
1.5 If you let a man kick you once, he'll kick you two-three times,
1.6 I mean, he'll kick you two-three times.

[Lines 1, 2, 5 and 6 are the same in each verse.]

2.3 Some use a razor, some use a gat,
2.4 But I ain't gonna let 'em knock me out like that.

3.3 I got eggs in my cupboard ... on my shelf.
3.4 I can't stand the man that can't check himself.

4.3 Now I generally drink no water, only whiskey or gin.
4.4 Try to ... kick your buck teeth in.

5.3 From the time you're born, till you ride in the hearse,
5.4 There's nothin' so bad that it couldn't 'a' been worse.

6.3 I got a nasty little pit bull, fuzzy little snout,
6.4 You try to kick my pit, he'll bite your butt cheeks out.


[Gat = from Gatling gun, slang for any kind of handgun.]
