Don't Go Joe
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


The Yankees came and went
And broke the heart of my kid sister Millicent
The Yankee man came and went
And broke the heart of my kid sister Millicent
I paid no heed to what she spoke of
Not knowing she was so much in love
But when he tell she good bye
She kneel down and start to cry

Don't go Joe, don't go
You wouldn't know Joe, I love you so
And when you're gone dou-dou
I can't go on without you
So Joe, please Joe, don't go

He look like a decent guy
Milly dou-dou darling don't cry
Wiping her tears away
Baby listen what I have to say
You know we had to part some day
Because I got meh wife in the U.S.A.
But all the talk was in vain
Milly started crying again

Don't go Joe, don't go
You wouldn't know, but I love you so
And when you're gone dou-dou
I can't go on without you
So Joe, please Joe, don't go

Whoopsie mama!
Yes

You know Yankee love their sport
Every soldier got a girl in a different port
You could imagine how I surprise
To see tears in the soldier eyes
Soldiers and sailors don't cry
So I know the girl getting mama guy
Instead of looking for cash
She so stupid, she tell the Yankee "hush!"

Don't go Joe, don't go
You wouldn't know, but I love you so
And when you're gone dou-dou
I can't go on without you
So Joe, please Joe, don't go

Whoopsie mama!
I'm gonna miss you baby!
Don't go, Joe

The girl have nothing to eat
She belly big I does shame for she on the street
Like love talk is all she know
She ain't talk like that he can't talk about dough
But when he gone is then Milly show me
A big fat wallet with plenty money
Saying "He brain ain't bigger then mine
I was crying but I pick his pocket same time!"

Don't go Joe, don't go
You wouldn't know, but I love you so
And when you're gone dou-dou
I can't go on without you
So Joe, bye Joe, don't go, Joe

So Joe, please Joe, don't go
I'm gonna miss you baby!
So Joe, please Joe, don't go
Don't go baby!
So Joe, please Joe, don't go
Come on back again...
