Why Don't It Talk Like The Way That It Talk
--Fred Tackett, Paul Barrere

Little Marcellus
Won’t ya please come and tell us
What ya think ya doin’
Hanging out behind that
Chicken wire trellis

Dressed up like some city dandy
Looking just as sweet as store bought candy
Gonna tell yo mama Stella
Who ya waiting for
Behind that
Chicken wire trellis

Why don’t it look like the way that it talk
I is e and e is a
Why don’t it do like the way that it be
Z to a and a to z

Sister Ophelia ..
Just wait till they see ya
Trimming on that bougainvillea
Cause the spines at times
Keep the boys in line
They don’t really know you
They just want to show you and throw you a line
And a dime for your time
They ain’t worth no nevermind

Why don’t it look like the way that it talk
I is e and e is a
Why don’t it do like the way that it be
Z to a and a to z

Listen to the hound dogs
Singing in the night
Tree that fox, let her go
Whooooo ohh
It’s the song of the south that everybody knows
That boy is trippin, sippin’
Sweet honey drippin’ from the hive
Its good to be alive, so good to be alive

Why don’t it look like the way that it talk
I is e and e is a
Why don’t it do like the way that it be
Z to a and a to z
