Lyrics

Now lookie here, papa, let me explain ya this
Ain’t no one gonna slap a cuff ‘cross my wrist
You can quote from Revelations, back to Genesis
But honey lamb, my southern can belongs to me

Well now there ain't no use in bringing your jive to me
Because my southern can is mine in the mornin'
My southern can belongs to me

Mad as a wet hen, you can talk real hard
Pull you a picket outta your backyard
You think you own my can, but let’s just see
Last time I checked it’s still attached to me

Well now there ain't no use in bringing your jive to me
Because my southern can is mine and you know it
My southern can belongs to me

No time to hear you whine about my double dealin’
I’ll tear it uptown if I get the feelin'
Can charge a hundred dollars or give it away free
My southern can is mine to do with as I please

Well now there ain't no use in bringing your jive to me
Because my southern can is mine but you want it
My southern can belongs to me

Now ashes to ashes, sand to sand
My southern can is mine and don’t belong to no man
But if you treat me nice, papa, I’ll cut you some slack
My ample southern can will treat you nice right back

Well now there ain't no use in bringing your jive to me
Because my southern can is mine I ain't dreamin'
My southern can belongs to me

Lyrics by Pamela Moore
Music arranged by Pamela Moore
Based on a work by Blind Willie McTell
Madame Pamita - Vocal and soprano ukulele
Mr. Patrick "The Holy Ukerist" Weise - Guitar

Recorded September 9, 2008 at Mr. Peter Dilg's Wax Cylinder Factory

-:::-

When Madame Pamita contacted the spirit of Blind Willie McTell via talking spirit board, together they wrote this revised version of the song that tells the real version of who owns whose southern can.

A similar song ("Southern Can is Mine") was originally recorded by Blind Willie McTell (recording as "Blind Sammie") in 1931.
