Bobby Darin

I Ain't Gonna Give Nobody None of My Jellyroll

 


 

 

      Johnny:
      I ain’t gonna give nobody none of my jellyroll ...

      Bobby:
      How ‘bout your short’ning bread?

      Johnny:
      Oh, I wouldn’t give you a piece a pie to save your soul ...

      Bobby:
      I guess that’s what you said.

      Johnny:
      My ma told me today
      When she went away ...

      Bobby:
      To buy groceries.

      Johnny:
      To be a good boy
      She’d give me a toy
      ‘cause I’m my mama’s
      Pride and joy.

      There ain’t no use of anyone to keep a hangin’ ‘round ...

      Bobby:
      Maybe I’m waiting’ on your ma.

      Johnny:
      You don’t know my ma
      She’d really put you down ...

      Bobby:
      Put me down?

      Johnny:
      Ma’s bakin’ up a storm
      And her oven is still warm.
      I know you want it
      But you can’t have it
      And I ain’t gonna give you none.

      Bobby:
      You dirty boy!

      I ain’t gonna give nobody none of my jellyroll ...

      Johnny:
      Oh, ... such a stingy chap!

      Bobby:
      I wouldn’t give you a piece a pie to save your soul ...

      Johnny:
      How ‘bout a zuzu snap?

      Bobby:
      Her cherry pie is fine
      Her layer cake divine.
      But I’m tellin’ you twice
      You can’t get a slice
      Unless you’re extra special nice.

      Now, there ain’t no use of you to just keep a hangin’ ‘round ...

      Johnny:
      Oh, ... pretty please!

      Bobby:
      I love you but I hate to put you down
      Yeah, ... my jellyroll is sweet ...

      Johnny:
      That it is!

      Bobby:
      It sure is hard to beat
      Well, I know they want it ...

      Johnny:
      But, they can’t have it ...

      Both:
      Whoa, Miss Nelly, I need my jellyroll!

      Johnny:
      Dibs on the dishpan.

      Bobby:
      I got seconds.
