[Spoken]
Ben!
What?
Sing that song!
Oh, no, not now!
Take it, John!

Ben!
What?
Sing that song!
Oh, wait awhile!
Take it, Jim!

Ben!
Okay, modulate!

Better git,
I don't want to see you no more.
You better git,
Baby, now you've got to go.
Why, you spoiled me out because the date I made,
Was a gal I got that's up-to-date!
Better git.
Don't want to see you no more.

Aw, git,
Don't want to see your face.
Better git,
Baby, somebody's taken your place.
Why I used to like to love you just four or five times.
Four or five don't mean a thing for that yellow gal of mine;
Better git,
Don't want to see your face!
