Heptune presents:

I'm an Unemployed Sweetheart

Transcribed from Ted Wallace and His Campus Boys, recorded 7/3/1931.
From Songs of the Depression, Mojo CD-MOJO-311.

I want a job in the moonlight,
Under the stars above,
For I'm an unemployed sweetheart
Looking for somebody to love.

I'll guarantee I can spoon right,
Just like a turtle dove,
For I'm an unemployed sweetheart
Looking for somebody to love.

Oh, I've got kisses, and I've got arms,
Still, I'm always blue,
'Cause my kisses, and my arms,
Have no work to do!

If I got a chance in the moonlight,
I wouldn't need a shove,
For I'm an unemployed sweetheart
Looking for somebody to love.
