(GOT ME A) TRUMPET
(Louie Newton Moore)
MALCOLM YELVINGTON (SUN unissued, 1957)

You said my love ain't enticing
You said my cake has no icing
Offered my heart, you just dumped it
So I bought a brand new trumpet
She's got dimples, man she's lovely
And she thinks the world of me
If you want my love, you better show it
I got a new trumpet and I'm gonna blow it

Get her bad, I'm gonna take a bank roll
Give you a sad long road to travel
Told your friends you had me soda'd
But today the thread unraveled
Stop being nice, gonna be rowdy
If the sun don't shine, let it be cloudy
Wanna a bad crop, go ahead and sow it
I got a new trumpet and I'm gonna blow it

Said my car ain't the latest
You said my smile ain't the greatest
When you need cash, gotta be a loan sum
Gimme the bills, I'm gonna dump some
Gonna call the bank, don't trust to send her
Gonna tell the man standing at the window
If she bring a cheque, don't dare to cash it
I made the dough and I'm gonna flash it

Gonna put no clothes in your wardrobe
Place no food on your table
Gave you my love, you returned it
Keep a-doing wrong, you won't be able
Pushed your luck, now I doubt you
If I can't live with you, I can live without you
Break your own heart, you'll be depicted
I got a new banjo and I'm gonna pick it

Get her bad, I'm gonna take a bank roll
Give you a sad long road to travel
Told your friends you had me soda'd
But today the thread unraveled
Stop being nice, gonna be rowdy
If the sun don't shine, let it be cloudy
Wanna a bad crop, go ahead and sow it
I got a new trumpet and I'm gonna blow it
