VP_000057 Verse 1I know a triflin' man, They call him "Triflin' Sam." He lives in Birmingham, 'Way down in Alabam' Now the other night, He had a fight with a gal named Mandy Brymm, And she plainly stated she was aggravated, As she shouted out to him: Chorus 1Aggravatin' papa, Don't you try to two-time me, I said, 'don't two-time me!' Aggravatin' papa, Treat me kind or let me be, I mean, 'just let me be.' Listen while I get you told Stop messin' 'round, sweet jelly roll, If you step out with a high brown baby, I'll smack you down and I don't mean may-be. Aggravatin' papa, I'll do anything you say Yes, anything you say. But when you go struttin', Do your struttin' 'round my way. So papa, Just treat me pretty, Be nice and sweet, 'Cause I possess a forty four that don't repeat, Aggravatin' papa, Don't you try to two-time me! Verse 2Now I don't mean to scold, But I must get you told, Keep flirtin' 'round so bold, You'll see my love grow cold. Don't care who she is, Or what she does ain't a gal in this here town, That can love and pet you like your own sweet mamma, So you'd better throw 'em down: Chorus 2Aggravatin' papa, Don't you try to two-time me, I said, 'don't two-time me!' Aggravatin' papa, Treat me kind or let me be, I mean, 'just let me be.' Listen while I get you told Stop messin' 'round, sweet jelly roll, If you step out with a high brown baby, I'll smack you down and I don't mean may-be. Aggravatin' papa, I'll do anything you say Yes, anything you say. But when you go struttin', Do your struttin' 'round my way. Now papa, You best be careful, As you can be, 'Cause I can beat you doin' what you're doin' me, Aggravatin' papa, Don't you try to two-time me! Chorus 3Aggravatin' papa, Don't you try to two-time me, I said, 'don't two-time me!' Aggravatin' papa, Treat me kind or let me be, I mean, 'just let me be.' Listen while I get you told Stop messin' 'round, sweet jelly roll, If you step out with a high brown baby, I'll smack you down and I don't mean may-be. Aggravatin' papa, I'll do anything you say Yes, anything you say. But when you go struttin', Do your struttin' 'round my way. Now papa,Once you were steady, Once you were true, But papa, now sweet mamma can't depend on you. Aggravatin' papa, Don't you try to two-time me!
