Howlin' Wolf -- Wang Dang Doodle


Best party invite list ever:

Tell automatic Slim, tell razor totin' Jim
Tell butcher knife totin' Annie, tell fast talking Fanny
A we gonna pitch a ball, a down to that Union Hall
We gonna romp and tromp till midnight
We gonna fuss and fight till daylight
We gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long
All night long, all night long, all night long
 
Tell kudu-crawlin' Red, tell abyssinian' Ned
Tell ol' pistol Pete, everybody gonna meet
Tonight we need no rest, we really gonna throw a mess
We gonna to break out all of the windows
We gonna kick down all the doors
We gonna pitch a wang dang doodle, all night long
All night long, all night long, all night long, all night long, all night long
 
Tell Fats and washboard Sam, that everybody gonna to jam
Tell Shaky and boxcar Joe, we got sawdust on the floor
Tell Peg and Caroline Dye, we gonna have a time
When the fish scent fill the air, there'll be snuff juice everywhere
We gonna pitch a wang dang doodle, all night long
All night long, all night long, all night long
All night long, all night long, all night long
 
 
I always thought that it was "fish heads" that filled the air; you be the judge.
