The Cats Got The Measles-Papa Charlie Jackson
C position, standard tuning

Now the cat's got the measles, dog's got the whooping cough, doggone my soul, Lawd, Lawd
The cat's got the measles, the dog's got the whooping cough
Doggone a man, let a woman be his boss, doggone my soul

Now I ain't no devil, born in the lion's den, doggone my soul, Lawd, Lawd
I ain't no devil, born in the lion's den
But my chief occupation, takin' women from their monkey men, doggone my soul

Says, I ain't good-lookin', my teeth don't shine like pearls, doggone my soul, Lawd, Lawd
I ain't good-lookin', my teeth don't shine like pearls
But I've got something big to carry me through this pig iron world, doggone my soul

Now I think I heard a rumblin', deep down in the ground, doggone my soul, Lawd, Lawd
I think I heard a rumblin', deep down in the ground
Well, it must have been the Devil, chainin' my good gal down, doggone my soul

Now the mens don't like me, just because I speak my mind, doggone my soul, Lawd, Lawd
The mens don't like me, just because I speak my mind
But the women cry, "Papa!", just because I take my time, doggone my soul

Now the cat's got the measles, the dog's got the whooping cough, doggone my soul, Lawd, Lawd
The cat's got the measles, the dog's got the whooping cough
Doggone a man, let a woman be his boss, doggone my soul
