He Went Slippin' Around

Lyrics written by: Jennifer

Oh, Bill Brown was known around town
For slippin’ around at night
He’d grab a jug and cut a rug
Man, he’d really live it up right

Oh, Susie Brown finally found
That old Bill was really hip
She took a bucket of banana peelings
And throwed ‘em on the step

And he went slippin’ around
Yes, he went slippin’ around
He went slippin’ around
Yes, he went slipping around

With a relevé here and a plié there
And he finally hit the floor
He done a dance that ain’t never been done
And it won’t be done no more

And he went slippin’ around
Yes, he went slipping around

Bill sat in on a game one night
He didn’t intend to stay
His money flew from left to right
And it finally went away

His shoes went here and his shirt went there
And he finally lost his goat
He came home about daylight
In a borrowed petticoat

And he went slippin’ around
Yes, he went slippin’ around
He went slippin’ around
Yes, he went slippin’ around

His wife said Bill is that you there
Coming in at this hour
Then she let fly between his eyes
With her best potted flower

And he went slippin’ around
Yes, he was slippin’ around

Billy had a gal downtown
His ever loving Bess
He didn’t dream when he met her
She would get him in a mess

His wife found out she was not
The idol of his life
She put a stop to that right quick
With a great big butcher knife

Now he’s through slippin’ around
Yes he’s through slippin’ around
He’s through slippin’ around
Yes, he’s through slippin’ around

His spirit rose up from the grave
And went floating through the air
He heard a voice from down below saying
You ain’t a going up there

Cause you’ve been slippin’ around
Yes you’ve been slippin’ around
Yes, you’ve been slippin’ around
