Hi everybody,

Back to the vintage uke songs. This one written by Andy Razaf and first sung by Georgia White in 1936.

Ms. White introduced the song with this valuable explanation:

I own a secondhand furniture store and I think my prices are fair
That is until this real cheap guy came in one day
Saw this chair he wanted to buy, but he wouldn't, claimed the price was too high
So I looked him straight in his eye, and this was my reply.....

The original lyrics (in the lyrics field) are very bawdy but typical of the time.

I chose to sing Janet Klein's lyrical version. A bit more subdued but still cheeky.

As always thank you for your time!

Elaine
