MOSE ALLISON lyrics - Ask Me Nice

MOSE ALLISON
"Ask Me Nice"
(Mose Allison)

I just got here early yesterday
It won't be long and I'll be on my way
These few days, that I'll be round
Please don't try to bring me down

I made my entrance on the greyhound bus
I don't intent to 'cause a fuss
You like my style that's fine with me
If you don't just let me be

Don't try to make me what I'm not
I just get by with what I've got
Live let live, that's my advice
If you got questions, ask me nice

Now I don't claim to be so great
I'm no pacesetter, I'm no potentate
I got some kids, I got a wife
I'm just trying to swing my way through life

Don't try to make me what I'm not
I just get by with what I've got
Live let live, that's my advice
If you got questions, ask me nice

I'm not the first, I'm not the most
And of this town, I' am not the toast
I'm getting older, every day
I'm just trying to do it baby in my way

So don't try to make me what I'm not
I just get by with what I've got
Live let live, that's my advice
If you got questions, ask me nice
