Say, Mandy Green, that Darktown queen,
Never seems to hold her man;
Or controls, so I am told;
Made them all turn on the fan;
But she's changed her mind, and how!
This is how she courts 'em now:

She says, "How ya feelin'? What's your hurry?"
De-bow, de-bow, de-bow.

"How ya feelin'? What's your hurry?
Tell me who you're wild about now?"

"You know, I need someone that's sweet and nice,
Can send my soul straight to paradise!"

"How ya feelin'? And what's your hurry?
De-bow, de-bow, de-bow.

"Oh, how ya feelin'? What's your hurry?"
Be-datn, datn, batn, doom-ba.

"How ya feelin'? What's your hurry?
Tell me who you're wild about now?"

You know, I've been to France, and I've been to Rome;
Nothing there that I can't get at home.

"Oh, how ya feelin'? What's your hurry?"
De-bow, de-bow, de-bow.
