A woman is a sometime thing by Ella Fitzgerald  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



A woman is a sometime thing Jake
(to clara)
What, that chile ain't asleep yet? give him to me.
I'll fix him for you.
(jake takes the baby from clara)

Lissen to yo' daddy warn you,
'fore you start a-travelling,
Woman may born you, love you and mourn you,
But a woman is a sometime thing,
Yes, a woman is a sometime thing.

Mingo
Oh, a woman is a sometime thing.

Jake
Yo' mammy is the first to name you,
Then she'll tie you to her apron string,
Then she'll shame you and she'll blame you
Till yo' woman comes to claim you,
'cause a woman is a sometime thing,
Yes, a woman is a sometime thing.

Sporting life
Oh, a woman is a sometime thing.

Jake
Don't you never let a woman grieve you
Jus' cause she got yo' weddin' ring.
She'll love you and deceive you,
Take yo' clothes and leave you
'cause a woman is a sometime thing.

All
Yes, a woman is a sometime thing.
Yes, a woman is a sometime thing,
Yes, a woman is a sometime thing.

Jake
There now, what I tells you; he's asleep already.

(baby wails)
(men at crap game laugh).
