The jazz version by Tom Archia- Cabbage Head part 2 has the word,
"voutieoreenie" in the famous rolling pin verse-- I couldn't undertand what "Doc" Jo Jo Adams was singing. Here's the verse with my footnote:

She said, "Be 'shamed you fool, you drunken old fool,
Well honey can't you see?
That ain't nothin' but a rolling pin,
That your grandpa made for me.

I said, "I've travelled this world for many miles,
And I hope to travel some more.
But I'll be dogged if I ever saw a rolling pin,
With a voutieoreenie on it before. [1]

What is "voutieoreenie"? Here's the link to my transcription:
