"I Still Suits Me" (karaoke)

"I Still Suits Me" (sheet music)

 


 

[Joe] Keep on a-naggin'

'N bully-raggin'

'N criticizin'

'N call me pizin'

Ah ain't apologizin',

No siree

No matter what you say

I still suits me

De rag yo're chewin'

Mus' be a ruin'

Keep right on knockin'

Keep right on mockin'

Mah rockin' chair ain't rockin'

No siree

No matter what you say

I still suits me

 

[Queenie] Does you ever wash the dishes?

Does you do the things I wishes?

Does you do dem?

No, you don't

Will you do dem?

No, you won't

When dere's any workin' to it

I'm de one dat's gotta do it

When it's rainin', who's de feller

Uses up de whole umbreller?

Selfish as a man can be

 

[Joe] No matter what you say

I still suits me

 

[Queenie] You don't make money

 

[Joe] I know dat, honey

 

[Queenie] I never see none

 

[Joe] Ain't gonna be none

But dat don't worry me none

No siree

 

[Queenie, spoken] Shif'less! Lifeless! No good!

 

[Joe] No matter what you say

I still suits me

I may be no good

No good fo' yo' good

I may be lifeless

But wid one wife less

My life would be mo' strifeless

Yes, siree

No matter what you say

I still suits me

 

[Joe imitating Queenie] Does you ever wash the dishes?

Does you do de things I wishes?

Does you do dem?

No, you don't

Will you do dem?

No, you won't

 

[Queenie] Always imitatin' me

An' always aggravatin' me

Den in spite of ev'rything

In spite of all the grief you bring

Expectin' me to love you true

 

[Joe] No matter what you say

I think yo' do

 

[Queenie, spoken] I knows I do
