Your calf is hungry, mama, I believe he needs a suck
I say your calf is hungry, mama, and I believe he needs a suck
Yes, your milk is turning blue, I believe he's out of luck

Says, I found out now, mama, reason why I can't satisfy you to save my soul
I say, hey, hey, can't satisfy you to save my soul
Yes, you've got a new calf, he's sixteen years old

But I'm gwonna see my jelly, mama, gonna bring it right on home to you
I say, hey, hey, gon' bring it right home to you
You can't find no young calf, roll jelly like this old one do

Says, I got a new way of rollin', mama, I think it must be best
I say, hey, hey, yes, I think it must be best
Says, these here North Carolina womens, just won't let Blind Boy Fuller rest

Mmmm, just won't let me rest
I said, hmm-mmm, just won't let me rest
Said, I got the kind of lovin', yes, Lord, I think it must be best

Says I roll jelly early in the mornin', and I also roll at night
I say, hey, hey, I also roll at night
Then I don't stop rollin', 'til I know I rolled that jelly just right
