Can You Blame the Colored Man

Gus Cannon
Language: English



Now, Booker T, he left Tuskegee, to the White House he went one day
He was goin' to call on the President in a quiet and a sociable way
He was in his car, he was feelin' fine
Now, when Booker knocked on the President's door, old Booker begin to grin
Now, he almost changed his color, when old Roosevelt says "A-come in
We'll have some dinner in a little while"
Now, could you blame the colored man for makin' them goo-goo eyes?
And when he sat down at the President's table he began to smile
Eatin' lamb, ham chicken roast, chicken, turkey, quail on toast

Now, could you blame the colored man for makin' them goo-goo eyes?
Now, Booker was so delighted at the social that was given to him
Well, he hired him a horse and carriage and he taken the whole town in
He's drunk on wine, was feelin' fine
Now, could you blame the colored man for makin' them goo-goo eyes?
And when he sat down at the President's table he began to smile
Eatin' lamb, ham chicken roast, chicken, turkey, quail on toast
Now, could you blame the colored man for makin' them goo-goo eyes?
