Heptune presents:

I Don't Want Nobody That Don't Want Me

Transcribed from vocals by Viola McCoy, recorded April 22, 1924,
From Viola McCoy: Complete Recorded Works in Chronological Order, Volume 2: 1924-1926; Document Records DOCD-5417.

I got a man, I tried to treat him right,
But he would fuss with me 'most every night,
Then he said he was going away,
Packed up his grip and left the very next day.
Just half past, when he came back,
Down on his knees for me to take him back,
Then I told him right to his face,
"I got another daddy to take your place!"

I don't want nobody that don't want me,
I mean it plain as day, you see,
You went away and left me, now it seems so funny,
You come back now and want to call me honey!

Just as sure as one and one make two,
I used to love you, now I'm through with you,
You had me blind as I could be,
But now I can plainly see,
I don't want nobody that don't want me!

I don't want nobody that don't want me,
 I mean it plain as day, you see,
You went away and left me, now it seems so funny,
You come back now and want to call me honey!

Just as sure as one and one make two,
I used to love you, now I'm through with you,
You had me blind as I could be,
But now I can plainly see,
I don't want nobody, baby, that don't want me!
