mighty sparrow – don’t go joe lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
the yankees came and went
and broke the heart of my kid sister millicent
the yankee man came and went
and broke the heart of my kid sister millicent
i paid no heed to what she spoke of
not knowing she was so much in love
but when he tell she goodbye
she kneel down and start to cry

[chorus]
don’t go joe, don’t go
you wouldn’t know joe, i love you so
and when you’re gone, dou dou
i can’t go on without you
so joe, please joe, don’t go

[verse 2]
he look like a decent guy
milly, dou dou darling, don’t cry
wiping her tears away
baby listеn what i have to say
you know we had to part some day
bеcause i got me wife in the usa
but all the talk was in vain
milly started crying again
[chorus]
don’t go joe, don’t go
you wouldn’t know, but i love you so
and when you’re gone, dou dou
i can’t go on without you
so joe, please joe, don’t go

whoopsie mama! yes!

[verse 3]
you know yankee love their sport
every soldier got a girl in a different port
you could imagine how i surprise
to see tears in the soldier eyes
soldiers and sailors don’t cry
so i know the girl getting mamaguy
instead of looking for cash
she so stupid, she tell the yankee, “hush!”

[chorus]
don’t go joe, don’t go
you wouldn’t know, but i love you so
and when you’re gone, dou dou
i can’t go on without you
so joe, please joe, don’t go
i’m gonna miss you baby! don’t go, joe!

[verse 4]
the girl have nothing to eat
she belly big i does shame for she on the street
like love talk is all she know
she ain’t talk like that he can’t talk about dough
but when he gone is then milly show me
a big fat wallet with plenty money
saying, “he brain ain’t bigger then mine
i was crying but i pick his pocket same time!”

[chorus]
don’t go joe, don’t go
you wouldn’t know, but i love you so
and when you’re gone, dou dou
i can’t go on without you
so joe, bye joe, don’t go, joe

[outro]
so joe, please joe, don’t go
i’m gonna miss you baby!
so joe, please joe, don’t go
don’t go baby!
so joe, please joe, don’t go
come on back again…
