LOUIS ARMSTRONG lyrics - You Rascal You

LOUIS ARMSTRONG
"You Rascal You"

I'll be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!
I'll be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!
You know you done me wrong,
You done stole my wife and gone.
I'll be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!

I'm gonna kill you just for fun, you rascal, you!
I'm gonna kill you just for fun, you rascal, you!
I'm gonna kill you just for fun;
The buzzards gonna have you when I'm done.
I'll be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!

You asked my wife for some cabbage, you dog,
I said you asked my wife for some Cabbage, you old rascal,
You asked my wife some cabbage,
And you ate just like a savage you ol'rascal.

Ain't no use to run, you rascal, you.
Ain't no use to run, you rascal, you.
Ain't no use to run,
I done went to the barn and got my gun,

You done messed with my wife, you rascal, you!
You done messed with my wife, you rascal, you!
You done messed with my wife,
And I'm gonna take your life.
I'll be glad when you dead, you rascal, you!

Mack The Knife (1957)
