Forgive me if I've restated a verse, but I just skimmed the entries above.

I ain't never had no two women at one time,
No, I never had no two women at one time,
To satisfy this boy takes six, seven eight or nine.

I prayed to the Lord to send me an angel down,
Yes I prayed to the Lord to send me an angel down,
He must've been outa angels 'cause he sent me old Thelma Brown.

What is it makes me love that Thelma Brown?
What is it makes me love that Thelma Brown?
Must be the same old thing makes a bulldog hug a hound.

What makes my grandma love my grandpa so?
What makes my grandma love my grandpa so?
He's got that same jellyroll he had fifty years ago.

I can't remember where I heard the first three, but the Grandma one comes from Lonnie Johnson.
