Testo della canzone Wait Until Your Daddy Comes Home 19 Dec 1912 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] Curly headed pickaninny acting gay
He’s been bad all day and he won’t obey
Talking back to Mammy in a sassy way
Makes her look with much surprise
Mammy starts to holler as a Mammy would
Won’t you please be good as a good boy should?
But it doesn’t seem to do any good
So she finally cries

[chorus:] Wait until your Daddy comes home
Wait until your Daddy comes home
I’ll tell him how you’ve been talking to your Mammy
Since he started to roam
Wait until I tell him the way
You’ve been misbehaving today
He’ll press your pants in a manner nice and fine
Right on the spot where the sun will never shine
Lawdy! How you’re going to groan
When your loving Daddy comes home

[2nd verse:] Curly headed pickaninny jumps about
Sticks his tongue ‘way out at his Mammy stout
Steps upon his Mammy’s foot, the one with gout
Till it almost broke apart
Mammy lays the pickaninny on her lap
In her hand a strap, ready for the rap
But she hollers as she lays down the strap
No, I haven’t the heart
