Satisfyin' Papa

Ethel Waters

Lucy Brown, lived uptown
In a four-room flat
I mean, she's a high brown queen
Don't ever wear no hat
Lovin' Dan is her man;
Boy, he's up-to-date
But here is what she said to him
Last night when he came in late:
Satisfyin' Papa, be yourself
Satisfyin' Papa, no one else
Knows how to satisfy me; can't you see
Your way of lovin' suits me to a T;
Satisfyin' Papa, you're so kind
Men like you are doggone hard to find
If you leave me, I'll be blue;
Don't mistreat me, if you do
Someday, wait and see
You'll come beggin' me
To take your love off the shelf
Satisfyin' Papa, be yourself!
Last winter, in the snow
Everybody in town know
Every day, rain or shine
I sure did make time;
I give you every cent
To buy clothes and pay the rent
You always had your way;
Don't blame me when I say:
You know a good gal is hard to find
You know you think that love is blind
Someday, wait and see
You'll come beggin' me
To take your love off the shelf
Satisfyin' Papa, be yourself
