Flip Flop & Fly
The Blues Brothers Lyrics


When I get the blues gonna give me a rockin' chair
When I get the blues gonna give me a rockin' chair
When the blues overtake, gonna rock rock away from here
When I get lonesome, I get right on the telephone

Call my baby, and tell her I'm gonna come back home
I say little darling, please have my dinner ready
Flip, flop and fly
I don't care if I die
Flip, flop and fly
I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me
Don't ever say goodbye

Here comes by baby, flashing a new gold tooth
Here comes by baby, flashing a new gold tooth
If she shows more, she can rock home with the bacon too
I've got a Mississippi bullfrog sitting on a hollow stone
I've got a Mississippi bullfrog sitting on a hollow stone
I've got to work for this guy - I don't know which way to turn

Flip, flop and fly
I don't care if I die
Flip, flop and fly
I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me
Don't ever say goodbye

Give me one last kiss and hold it a long long time
Give me one last kiss and hold it a long long time
I want to feel that kiss till my head run feels like wine
Flip, flop and fly
I don't care if I die
Flip, flop and fly
I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me
Don't ever say goodbye

@Fitzhugh Goode Thanks

Fitzhugh Goode

Bethlehem Eisenhour Stewmac.com might still sell the Montreux step bass bridge.

Fitzhugh Goode

Or place a piece of foam rubber weather stripping under the strings right next to the bridge saddles to get that muted sound

Fitzhugh Goode

Bethlehem Eisenhour Check out how his use of washers on the E and A strings of his P-bass bridge led to the production of the Montreux step bass bridge.

@Fitzhugh Goode I learned this song in the 80's because of the Bass. Saw Duck Dunn playing with Eric Clapton once. You may have known him to know the details of his sound?
