Bessie Smith - You've Been A Good Ole Wagon lyrics

Looka here, Daddy, I want to tell you, please get out of my sight.
I'm playin' quits now, right from this very night.
You've had your day. Don't sit around and frown.
You've been a good old wagon, Daddy, but you done broke down.

Now, you'd better go the blacksmith shop and get yourself overhauled.
There's nothing about you to make a good woman fall.
Nobody wants a baby when a real man can be found.
You've been a good old wagon, Daddy, but you done broke down.

When the sun is shinin', it's time to make hay.
Automobiles operate. You can't make your wagon pay.
When you were in your prime, you liked to run around.
You've been a good old wagon, Daddy, but you done broke down.

There's no need to cry and make a big show.
This man knows more about lovin' than you will ever know.
He is the king of lovin'. This man deserves a crown.
He is a good old wagon, Daddy, and he ain't broke down.
