Once or Twice


Transcribed from Andy Kirk and his Twelve Clouds of Joy, vocal by Billy Massey; recorded May 1, 1930.
From Andy Kirk and his Twelve Clouds of Joy 1929-1931; The Chronogical Classics 655.

You can do it nice
You won't have to do it but once or twice;
In advance you can always chance
That once or twice.

It's a crying shame to have the name
Of trying to do it four or five times;
Take my advice, do it once or twice,
And you'll be feeling mighty fine.

You can love her nice,
You won't have to do it but once or twice,
A kiss from the soul and story told
About once or twice.

Of course, you know you'll need a red hot flat,
A beautiful girl, and it's tight like that,
But you won't have to do it but once or twice.

Spoken: Oh, do it!
