Memphis Minnie - Socket Blues lyrics

Down in my old home town, put the irons on the stove
But I'm got to have a socket everywhere I go
I need a socket, oohhh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

I got the clothes on the bed, all sprinkled down
I can't find no socket around, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

Well, the last socket I had, you throwed it out of doors
How in the world you expect for me to iron your clothes
I need a socket, oohhh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

Well, the reason I love my baby and love him so
He carry me a socket everywhere he go
I need a socket, oohhh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

I got an electric iron, I got plenty of steam
But a socket, now, is all in the world I need
I need a socket, oohhh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes
