No Mischief Monday



- Memphis Slim (1915-1988)





Mother Earth

You may play the rich hustler.
You may own a racetrack.
You may have enough money, baby,
to buy anything you like.

Chorus
Don't care how great you are,
and I don't care what you're worth,
Because when it all ends up,
you got to go back to Mother Earth.

You may high hat me all the time.
You may never go my way.
But Mother Earth will lay in for you,
that is the debt you have to pay.

(Chorus)

You may own a half the city,
even diamonds and pearls.
You may buy an airplane, baby,
and fly all over this world.

(Chorus)
