Thirty Days

Album: Rock, Rock, Rock (1955)
  • I'm gonna give you thirty days to get back home
    I done call up to the gypsy woman on the telephone
    She gonna send out a world wide hoodoo
    That'll be the very thing that'll suit you
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days

    Oh thirty days (thirty days!)
    Oh thirty days (thirty days!)
    Baby, I'mma see that you be back home in thirty days
    Well, she's gonna send out a world wide hoodoo
    That'll be the very thing that'll suit ya
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days

    I done talked to the judge in private early this morning
    And he took me to the sheriff's office to sign a warrant
    They gon' put a false charge again' ya (against ya)
    That'll be the very thing that'll send ya
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days
    Oh thirty days (thirty days)
    Oh thirty days (thirty days)
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days
    Yeah, we're gonna put a false charge again' ya
    That'll be the very thing that'll send ya
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days

    If I don't get no satisfaction from the judge
    I'm gonna take it to the FBI and voice my grudge
    If they don't give me no consolation
    I'm gonna take it to the United Nations
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days
    Oh thirty days! (thirty days)
    Oh thirty days! (thirty days)
    Baby, I'mma see that you be back home in thirty days
    Well if you don't give me no consolation
    I'm gonna take it to the United Nations
    I'm gonna see that you be back home in thirty days! Writer/s: CHUCK BERRY
