Can I Do It for You Part 1
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


I want to do something to you, I want to do something to you
Do anything in this world I can, I want to do something to you
Hear me saying, I want to do something to you

Naw, you can't do nothing to me, naw, you can't do nothing to me
I don't care what in the world you do, you can't do nothing for me
Hear me saying, you can't do nothing for me

Buy you a watch and chain, buy you a watch and chain
Buy you a watch and chain, I want to do something to you
Hear me saying, I want to do something to you

I don't want no watch and chain, I don't want no watch and chain
I don't want nothing in the world you got, and you can't do nothing for me
Hear me saying, you can't do nothing for me

Buy you a house and home, buy you a house and home
Buy you a house and home, I want to do something to you
Hear me saying, I want to do something to you

I don't want no house and home, I don't want no house and home
I don't want nothing in the world you got, and you can't do nothing to me
Hear me saying, you can't do nothing to me

Buy you a strip of land, buy you a strip of land
Buy you a strip of land, I want to do something to you
Hear me saying, I want to do something to you

I don't want no strip of land, I don't want no strip of land
I don't want nothing in the world you got, and you can't do nothing to me
Hear me saying, you can't do nothing to me

Buy you a diamond ring, buy you a diamond ring
Buy you a diamond ring, I want to do something to you
Hear me saying, I want to do something to you

I don't want no diamond ring, I don't want no diamond ring
I don't want nothing in the world you got, and you can't do nothing for me
Hear me saying, you can't do nothing for me

Can I do it to you, can I do it to you?
Do anything in this world I can, I want to do it to you
Hear me saying, I want to do do it to you

No you can't do it to me, no you can't do it to me
I don't care what in the world you do, but you can't do it to me
Hear me saying, you can't do it to me

albert angeloro

covered by Jim Kweskin and Maria Muldaur.....great thanks

albert angeloro

@Sherrard yes we are. are you aware of Maria Muldaur's recent album/video with Tuba Skinny New Orleans? one night at the Village Gate, was Sabicas and then Lightnin Hopkins. one night at the Gaslight was Phil Ochs and Mississippi John Hurt. one night at Gerdes Folk City was Bob Dylan on 12 string singing "its hard to be blind" and John Lee Hooker. the memories are many. sorry you didn't make it to the Gaslight but you know your music. a wisdom to be sure.

Sherrard

@albert angeloro Ah, back in Southern California, I was only dreaming of ever getting to the Gaslight, etc.

But here we are, older and wise enough to still be tempted down the same musical path . . .

albert angeloro

@Sherrard hello Brenda an honor and pleasure to meet you. i saw the band a few times in The Village at the Gaslight and Gerdes Folk City. i played flamenco guitar at the Cafe Flamenco on Bleecker St. that's how old i am...

Sherrard

@albert angeloro I had the Kweskin cover on vinyl back in the day. (That’s how old I am.) Jim Kweskin & Jug Band’s See Reverse Side for Title. (I still remember the album cover, but had to look up the title just now. That’s how old I am!!)

albert angeloro

@Sherrard hi its on the Chevrolet Album...it ends with: "i can use a super-ball and you can do something for me, oh yeah you can do something for me."

in 1990 Jim Kweskin and Another Jug Band member had a Shop in Portland, Oregon= Antiques, Books, and I had no idea how wonderful he was, I had a 1928 Kay Kraft Style C 2-Point Archtop Guitar bought at POrtland Music downtown, he told me a story about him hitch hiking with the same guitar some years before, and it was stolen wheile he was asleep by onother Tramp who cunningly Switched guitars from each other's cases, while Jim had it Tied to his Belt they still craftly stole it. He than thought again and said, I hope I din't jinks your guitar, Boxcar, you seem to be in love with it. Well, mine was stolen by Bushwackers in Seattle while I was in Jail, my Road Dog, a hobo called Danial Boone was keeping it foe me, and Bushwackers were Mome Guards who Beat Down tramps and stole our shit for Dope, got my guitar he visit me in Jail with Broken Arm and Big Cast on his Foot. I was transported to San Quentin by CDC and was in Prison another ...until 1996, when I was release I got a Gibson L1 1920's Guitar at RealGuitars in San Francisco-Ca.
