I heard Jim Jackson say to Mandy Green,Photo of Blanche Calloway
"You been the cruelest gal I've ever seen;
You made me walk around the park last night,
Then wouldn't kiss me; do you think that's right?"
Just then Miss Mandy turned around to him,
And she said, "Listen here, Jim!"

It's right here for you, if you don't get it,
'Tain't a fault of mine;
You know there's honey in each rose for the bee;
It's up to him to get it, you will agree;
I've got a lovin' disposition,
So, dear, I'm in the same position;
It's right here for you, and if you don't get it,
'Tain't no fault of mine, great goin', babe!
'Tain't no fault of mine!

Spoken: Oh, hear me talkin' to you!

It's right here for you, and if you don't get it,
'Tain't no fault of mine;
You know there's honey in each rose for the bee;
Then it's up to him to get it, ah, you will agree;
I've got something that'll sure surprise you,
Ah, something that will hypnotize you;
It's right here for you, and if you don't get it,
'Tain't no fault of mine, how come? how come?
'Tain't no fault of mine!
