  • Last night I was dreaming, dreamed about the H-bomb
    Well, the bomb went off and I was caught
    I was the only man on the ground
    There was a-thirteen women and only one man in town
    Thirteen women and only one man in town
    And as funny as it may be
    The one and only man in town was me
    Well, thirteen woman and me the only man around

    I had two girls every morning
    Seeing that I was well fed
    And believe you me, one sweetened my tea
    While another one buttered my bread
    Two girls gave me my money
    Two girls made me my clothes
    And another sweet thing, bought me a diamond ring
    About forty carats I suppose
    Well, thirteen women and only one man in town
    There was a-thirteen women and only one man in town
    It was something I can't forget
    Because I think of those thirteen women yet
    Well, thirteen woman and only one man around

    I had three girls dancing the mambo
    Three girls balling the jack
    And all of the rest really did their best
    Boy, they sure were a lively pack
    I thought I was in heaven
    And all of these angels were mine
    But I woke up and ended the dream
    'Cause I had to get to work on time
    Well, a-thirteen women and only one man in town
    There was a-thirteen women and only one man in town
    No, I can't tell you where I've been
    'Cause I kind of think that someday I'll go back again
    To those thirteen women and me the only man around
    Well, a-thirteen women and me the only man around
    Well, a-thirteen women and me the only man around Writer/s: DICKIE THOMPSON
