VP_012283 Verse 1A dusky coon, who came to spoon, his lady love from morn till noon, It seemed somehow they never could agree; No matter what he tried to do, She'd say I've had enough of you, Don't try to hand that lovey talk to me. He said "Hon' don't be cross, I'll let you be the boss". Chorus 1Give me just one loving smile, Ev'ry little bit helps, Let me hold your hand a while, Ev'ry little bit helps, Now and then a gentle squeeze, So my aching heart won't freeze, Love me just a tiny bit please, Ev'ry little bit helps. Verse 2Said she "I've heard your tales of woe, I think it time for you to go, Just put that lovin' gag up on the shelf", Then he replied, what shall I do, So I can make, a hit with you, You know I love you only for yourself. But as she said "goodbye", once more she heard him cry.
