"Jump Chillun" lyrics

Jump Chillun Track#20 Disc #1
John Lee Hooker
The Complete Vol.3 Album 1949-1950 Detroit

I'm goin' away, baby.
But I will be comin' back.
I'm goin' away, baby.
But I will be comin' back.
I'm a man now, baby.
An I sure can have my fun.

My mama she told papa, said the same.
'Now that you're a man.'
'You sure can have your fun.'
Ooh, an I sure can have my fun.

When I was laying down.
I heared mama an papa, talkin'.
I heared papa tell mama.
'That boy's a man, now.'
'Why hold him down?'
'Let him go have his fun.'
An I hear them say it.
I was layin' down thinkin' to myself.
I over heard 'em.

I felt so good.
Went on Boogie'n just the same.

Jump Chillun!

(Guitar solo)

Look-a-here now, baby.
I'm twenty-one, now.
An I'm a man an I know.

I can stay out all night long.
Til the break of day.
No worry 'bout a thing.
I can take care of myself from now on in.

Yes daddy, yes daddy.

An we will have some fun.
