Thread Name: Lyr Req: Roaches and Bedbugs?
Subject: RE: Roaches and Bedbugs?
This is how my grandmother sang it to me:

One day I was hungry
I didn't want to steal
I went to Lady Muffin's house
And asked her for a meal
She gave me bread and coffee
The bread was hard and stale
The coffee tasted like tobacco juice
Straight from the county jail
She took me to her bedroom
I looked upon the wall
The roaches and the bedbugs
Were having a game of ball
The score was six to nothing
The roaches were ahead
The bedbugs hit a homerun
And knocked me out of bed
