[Spoken]
Yo, there!
Yo, there, Sis Green!
Who that at my door?
This is me!
Well, so, you back here again?
I done told you to stay away from this door!
Let me tell you something.
If you was the right sort, I would't squawk.
But you one of them big-mouth brothers don't care who you go to to talk.
Oh, you know you got liquor in there!
What about it?
You know you got liquor in that house!

[Sung:]
Yes, I've got just what you want, but I ain't gonna sell you none.
My piano's playin' and my lights are low.
You can see I got something and I must close my door.
Don't shut that door!
I sell it to Deacon Green once a day and sometimes twice;
You can tell by that, babe, it must be nice.
Yeah.
Yes, I've got just what you want, but I ain't gonna sell you none.

Yeah, listen here, mama!
Yes, I got just what you want, but I ain't gonna give you none!
Listen to him!
Your piano's playin' and your lights are low,
Treat me nice, baby!
If you got something, I'll get away from your door,
If Elmer Jackson and Reverend Toodleloo
They couldn't go to conference
Till they got some more!
Yes, I got just what you want, but I ain't gonna give you none!

Ah, yes, I've got just what you want, but I ain't gonna sell you none.
Yeah, I don't care.
My piano's playin' and my lights are low,
You can see I got something here, and I must close my door.
Oh, tell me, then!
The reason I won't sell you none, you're so doggone cheap.
You buy one half a pint and want to park a week.
Now, yes, I've got just what you want, but I ain't gonna sell you none!
