Jump Back

Jump Back

Rufus Thomas

Last night, night befo (jump back baby jump back)
Twenty four robbers at my door. (jump back baby jump back)

I got up and let 'em in (jump back baby jump back)
Hit 'em in da head with a rolling pin. (jump back baby jump back)

When I got 'em in a billy goat town (jump back baby jump back)
Billy goat kicked his pappy down (jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump, jump)

Now I lay me down to sleep (jump back baby jump back)
givin the beddbugs a chance to creep (jump back baby jump back)
If one should bite before I wake (jump back baby jump back)
Hope the world his jaw will break (jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump, jump)

Went to the river, I couldn't get across
Paid five dollars for an old gray hoss
Hoss wouldn't pull, I swapped him for a bull
Bull wouldn't holla, I sold him for a dolla
Dolla wouldn't pass, I throwed it in the grass
Grass wouldn't grow, I chopped it wid a hoe
Hoe wouldn't chop, I took it to the shop
Shop made money like a bee makes honey.
(Oh jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump back baby jump back)
(Oh jump) mm wait a minute baby, (jump)
Ooh, come on do it (jump)
Yeah, yeah, yeah (jump)
Ooh, yeah, yeah (oh, jump back)
Oh, wait a minute baby (oh, jump back)
Oh, come on baby (oh, jump back)
Oh, come on baby (oh, jump back)
Oh, wait a minute baby (oh, jump back)
Jump back, jump back baby (oh, jump back)
Jump back, jump back baby (oh, jump back)
Jump back, jump back baby (oh, jump back)
Jump back, jump back baby (oh, jump back)
Oh, come on baby (oh, jump back)
Oh, come on baby (oh, jump back)
Oh, wait a m
