TOOTSIE
(Cantrell - Claunch)
CARL McVOY (HI 45-2001, 1957)

Well Tootsie, Tootsie, I call my honey Tootsie
I need that woman 'round me all the time
My blood is boiling in my vain
It takes my Tootsie to ease the pain
Tootsie, Tootsie now's the time

Well Tootsie, little Tootsie, I'm talking to you Tootsie
Gypsy woman told me, you'd be mine, all mine
It says right here in my hand
I'm a gonna be your loving man
Well Tootsie, Tootsie now's the time

Well Tootsie, Tootsie, I'm all tore up
Burning like a red hot fire
All the water in the Mississippi river
Couldn't cool off my desire

Well, don't say no, scoot a little closer
Pour a little water on the fire
I've been talking and telling everybody
Baby, what a gal you are

Well Tootsie, little Tootsie, I'm talking to you Tootsie
Gypsy woman told me, you'd be mine
It says right here in my hand
I'm a gonna be your loving man
Well Tootsie, Tootsie now's the time

Well Tootsie, Tootsie, I'm all tore up
Burning like a red hot fire
All the water in the Mississippi river
Couldn't cool off my desire

Well, don't say no, scoot a little closer
Pour a little water on the fire
I've been talking and telling everybody
Baby, what a gal you are

In 1958 "Tootsie", again backed with "You Are My Sunshine" (written by J. Davis and C. Mitchell), was re-issued on Phillips International (3526), a sub label of Sam Phillips' Sun Records.
