That Old Sweet Roll Lyrics by Dusty Springfield

 

That Old Sweet Roll by Dusty Springfield


Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi
Gonna find me a piece of the sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing, "Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-di-ho"

Listen, I've been down so low
That the bottom looked like up
Once I felt like second saves
Was enough to fill my cup

Now I've offered all I have
But it ain't no way to live
Being taken by the ones who have
The least amount to give

Singing, "Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi"
Got to find me a piece of the sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing, "Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho"

I wanna tell you, once I met the devil
He was mighty slick
Tempted me with worldly goods
Said I could have my pick

But when he laid the paper on me
And showed me where to sign
I said "Thank you" very kindly
But I'm in too great a need of mine

Singing, "Hi-de-ho, hi-de-hi", oh
Got to find me a piece of that sky
Gonna find me some of that old sweet roll
Singing "Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho", yeah

Hi-de-hi-de-ho
Hi-de-hi-de-ho, yeah
Hi-de-hi-de-ho
Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Talking 'bout hi-de-hi-de-ho
