I was down in Savannah Eatn' Cream and Bananas When the heat just made me faint I began to get cross eyed I thought I was lost I'd begun to see things as they ain't. As the relatives gathered to see what's the matter The doctor came to see was I fine. But the doctor said give him jug band music, It seems to make him feel just fine.
I was told a little tail about a skinny as a rail L.A. put cowboy with a headache He was hung up in the desert swappin' rats And tryn' ta get a drink of water with his knees gettin' mud caked And I'll tell you and acceptance how he stumbled into Memphis Tennessee Lookin' hard and gettin' dust baked. We gave I'm little water, a little bit of wine He opened up his eyes but they didn't seem to shine And the doctor said give him jug band music It seems to make him feel just fine
So if you ever get sickly Get sister run quickly to the dusty closet shelf And pull out a washboard, and play a guitar chord And do a little do it yourself. Call on your neighbors to put down their labors And come and play the hardware in time Cause the doctor said give him jug band music It seems to make him feel just fine
I was floatin' in the ocean Greased with suntan lotion When I got wiped out by a beach boy He was surfin' when he hit me but jumped off his board to get me And he dragged me by the armpit like a child's toy As we staggerd into land with all the waiters eatn' sandwiches We tried to mooch a towel from the hoi poloi He emptied out his eardrums, I emptied out mine And everybody knows that the very last line is The doctor said give him jug band music It seems to make him feel just fine
And the doctor said give him jug band music It seems to make him feel just fine.
