Nehi Blues

Some girls wear short dresses
some of these married women wear them too
Some girls wear short dresses
some of these married women wear them too
That's the reason we single men, lord, don't know what we want to do

Wish the proper judge would make these
women let their dresses down
Wish the proper judge would make these
women let their dresses down
So there'd quit being so doggone much murder in town

When they pass the law
pulling the short dress down
When they pass the law
pulling the short dress down
So we single men can tell a: married woman from a child

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmm mmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm mmmmmm
mmmmmm mmmm mmmm

Let me tell you boys
what these nehi dresses will do
Let me tell you boys
what these nehi dresses will do
Get you broke, naked and hungry, boy, and then come down on you

All of you women,
sure lord, ought to be 'shamed
All of you young women,
sure lord, ought to be 'shamed
Taking these old men's money when they walking on walking canes

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmm mmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm mmmmmm
mmmmmm mmmm mmmm

A old man ain't nothing
but a young woman's slave
These old mens ain't nothing
but a young woman's slave
They work hard all the time trying to stay in these young men's ways

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmm mmmm
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
mmmmmmmm mmmmmm
Mmmmmmmm mmmmmm
mmmmmm mmmm mmmm
