Money Blues — Bessie Smith

money blues -- bessie smith

Daddy, I need money
Give it to your honey
Daddy, I need money now

All day long I hear that song
Oh, I’m pretty sure for that I go wrong
Fast as I can lend it, how you like to spend it
It just appears somehow

I’ve got the money
You’ve got champagne
If you don’t stop spending
I’ll go insane

Daddy, I need money
Give it to your honey
Daddy, I need money now
Daddy, I need money now

Daddy, I need money
Give it to your honey
Daddy, I need money now

All day long I hear that song
Oh, I’m pretty sure for if I go wrong
Fast as I can lend it, how you like to spend it
It just appears somehow

I’ve got the money
You’ve got champagne
If you don’t stop spending
I’ll go insane

Daddy, I need money
Give it to your honey
Daddy, I need money now
