Boogie Children (Boogie Chillun)

John Fred & The Playboys

(Lynn Ourso, N-JOY 1005, 1964)

Well, my mama don't 'llow me
Just to stay out all night long
My ma-mama don't 'llow me
Just to stay out all night long
I don't care what mama don't 'llow
I will stay out anyhow
Oh, boogie-boogie children
Oh, boogie-boogie children
Oh, boogie-boogie children
Yeah, boogie-boogie children

Last night I heard mama and papa talkin'
I heard mama tell papa
Let that boy boogie his woogie
And then, he's got to come out
Well, I feel so good
Well, I feel so good
I'm gonna boogie just the same
I'm gonna boogie just the same
I'm gonna boogie just the same

Boogie chillun!

Well, I walked and walked
I walked a whole step down
I'm looking for my woman
You know she can't be found
I said, Lord oh Lord
Oh, won't you love me
Like I do you
Let us to get together
And be as two
Well, if I cook your breakfast
I'll bring it to your bed
Don't let the eggs and the bacon
Let that swell your head
Because I'm all alone
And don't you do me wrong
I mean, from now on
I mean, Lord oh Lord
I mean, Lord oh Lord
I said, Lord oh Lord
I said, Lord oh Lord
I got the money, oh Lord
Well, boogie-boogie children
Oh, boogie-boogie children
Yeah, boogie-boogie children
Yeah, boogie-boogie children
Yeah, boogie-boogie children

Original by John Lee Hooker (MODERN 627, 1949)
