Mississippi Blacksnakes Lyrics - It Still Aint No Good
« on: September 15, 2017, 06:04:45 AM »
Hey there!  I'm not sure where to post this.  I hope this is the right spot.

Can anybody help out with these lyrics?  I'm missing a bunch and as you can see some I'm also unsure of.



I was with a gang of boys, having a good time
Bur women these days like a worn out car
There?s always jumping time

They ain?t no good, oooh it ain?t no good
Well a man met a girl and he winked his eye
And now he?s in the horse ?till about to die
Because she was no good, oooh she was no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

Well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well he met another girl thought he could ship gal
And now he?s up the river doing fifteen years

Because it was no good,  ooooh it was no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
don?t jump every girl you see in the street
there?s other kind of folk besides pig meat
They ain?t no good, oooh it ain?t no good

Well it ain?t always make it fit my size

I went to samantha?s house, on her door I knocked
Women is so bad these days, they laugh when a whole house flop
They ain?t no good, oooh it ain?t no good
Well a chap met a girl and he made her a date
He?s sorry now too doggone late

She was no good, she was no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

Well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well a plod ado lip ain?t hot or cold
And everything glitter ain?t always gold
well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size


well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
well take this tip, knock on the wood
?cuz hot spring water won?t do no good

well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

I think I've got most of it -- I'm sure I didn't catch all the "ohs" vs. "wells" and "whole house flop" sounds right but I'm not 100% sure. You had the majority of it, SGM.

I WENT with a gang of boys, having a good time
BUT THE women these days like a WORE out car
They?s always jumping time

OH. they ain?t no good, OH it ain?t no good
Well a man met a girl and he winked his eye
And now he?s in the HORSE PILLS 'BOUT to die
Because she was no good, OH she was no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

OH it ain?t no good, OH it ain?t no good
Well he met another girl thought he could SHIFT GEARS
And now he?s up the river doing fifteen years

Because it was no good,  ooooh it was no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
don?t JIVE every girl you see in the street
there?s other kind of folk besides pig meat
They ain?t no good, oooh it ain?t no good
Well it ain?t NO WAY make it fit my size

I went to A FLAPPER?S house, on her door I knocked
Women is so bad these days, they laugh when a whole house flop
OH they ain?t no good, oooh they ain?t no good
Well a JASPER met a girl and he made her a date
He?s sorry now too doggone late

She was no good, OH she was no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

OH it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well a FLY'LL LAND ON ANYTHING, hot or cold
BUT everything glitter ain?t always gold
It ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size


OH it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
well take this tip, knock on the wood
?CAUSE hot spring water won?t do no good

well it ain?t no good, ooh it ain?t no good
Well it ain?t no way to make it fit my size

Might the one line be:
   Women is so bad these days they laugh when a whorehouse flops
It sounds like it and it makes more sense, though it would be a bit surprising to use "whorehouse" in a lyric
All best,

I had that thought, too, John, but "whorehouse" making it onto a record made me skeptical. I think you're probably right. A&R guy wasn't listening too closely that day!

It sounds a bit like "horse pill", but it's "hospital", pronounced "horsp'til". I also suspect it's "there's other kinds of pork besides pig meat", but I'm not going to the wall on that one.

Great catches, Al -- definitely "pork," too. Thanks!

The line: Women is so bad these days, they laugh when a whole house flop

I was just listening to this song, and I hear: "Women is so bad these days, they like an old wore-out clock"

Just a thought...
