TURNIP GREENS
(Al Smith - Gene Summers)
GENE SUMMERS (MEL-O-RECORDS Unissued, 1962)

Well, them turnip greens from New Orleans
I gotta have 'em for my Cajun Queen
Oh boy, yeah them turnip greens
Well, they taste so good for my little ole Cajun Queen

She gets up in the morning about half past dawn
She don't stop till a days work is done
Oh boy, cooking them turnip greens
She's the sweetest cooking woman that I've ever seen

She cooks something in the morning called a jambalaya
Down in Mississippi they call it crawfish pie
Oh boy, well I love my turnip greens
She's the sweetest litlle woman that I've ever seen
(Oh, cook 'em babe!)

She gets up in the morning about half past dawn
She don't stop till a days work is done
Oh boy, cooking them turnip greens
She's the sweetest little woman that I've ever seen

She cooks something in the morning called a jambalaya
Down in Mississippi they call it crawfish pie
Oh boy, well I love my turnip greens
She's the sweetest litlle woman that I've ever seen

Now, I don't want no 'matoes and I don't want no 'tatoes
I don't know baby, I just want some turnig greens
Baby, I gotta have 'em
