Silence Baby - Groovey Joe Poovey

Silence Baby

Groovey Joe Poovey

(Joe Poovey - Jim Shell, Rec. 1956, ROLLIN' ROCK 45-030)

When you're coming in in the evening
And you start with your yakety-yak
Now, if you don't hush you're leaving
And I'm holding a baseball bat
Silence baby, oh-huh honey
Shhh, don't say a word

Now if I tell you to git
Then you'd sure better go
And if I say lose it
It's time for you to ho
Silence baby, oh-huh honey
Shhh, don't say a word

Well, I don't like to go out dancing
It ain't a part of my romancing
And I don't like hot rod races
All I like is dark, real fine places
Honey, but when I'm parking
Then we begin to sparking
Well, don't you start your barking
Or come on with that talking
Silence baby, oh-huh honey
Shhh, don't say a word

Now, when I start a-talking
That's the time for you to stop
And if you give me any trouble
I'm a-gonna wind up on top
Silence baby, oh-huh honey
Shhh, don't say a word

Silence baby, oh-huh honey
Shhh, don't say a word
Silence, ahh
Shhh, don't say a word
Silence
Shhh, don't say a word
Sssilence baby...
