GUEST,Bob Coltman Lyr Req: Where Do You Work-A, John? (17) RE: Lyr Req: Where Do You Work-A, John? 22 May 18


To ann mcg above, if she's still awaiting completion of her Louise verse after ten years, here it is, from https://www.mamalisa.com/blog/pusha-da-truck-john-italian-american-folk-song/

What do you do, Louise? I'm doing what I please,
And what do you do, Louise, I tease, I tease, I tease,
And who do you tease, Louise, when you're doing what you please?
I tease-a da heck, I make her a wreck, my sister's got funny knees.
(Oh, you frighten me)
La la laah, la la, la la laah,
La la laah, la la, la la, laah

I question if that "tease-a da heck" line and what follows was ever part of the original. Sounds like a camp song addition to me. Nice though!

Bob
