The Lyrics

These are the lyrics as much as they have been studied and deciphered due to Bo Johnson's slack mouthed singing style.


Wallpaper Paste Blues


Woke up this mornin'
Thank Lord I'm not dead

Woke up this mornin'
Thank Lord I'm not dead
So surprised at this
I roll over an' went back to bed 

Woke up later this mornin'
Thank Lord I'm not dead
Woke up later this mornin'
Thank Lord I'm not dead
So pleased wit dis
Lick the wallpaper  till my tongue bled

Oh that paste dun and got me
It cover up  my eyes
Oh that paste dun and got me
It cover up  my eyes
But it feels so good
I'll keep doing it till I die
