Bottle Up And Go

Leadbelly


Now, I'm gon' bottle up and go
High powered womens
That means a woman when she's -
That means a woman when she's high-powered
She can drive her car, she can do most anything
Cause you know, women now make the news.
They make the news, an if you make 'em mad
They blow out your fuse.
And what I mean, they can drive a car
And they can drive the oxen
And do's ev'rything sort-a, like-a mans.
So now, I'm gon' bottle up an go
Bout women cause a grief
Women's whys I sing about it.


I got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
Any high powered women
Sho' got to bottle up and go


She may be old, ninety year
She ain't to old for to shift dem gears
She got to bottle up an - 'otta do what?
She got to bottle up and go
(Got to bottle up and go)
These high-powered women
Sho' got to bottle up and go


Told my baby, week a-fo' last
The gait she came it's alittle too fast
She got to bottle up an - got do what?
Say it, again
(Got to bottle up and go)
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


('Well, alright')


They got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
These-a high powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Told my baby late last night
None a my business, she's doin' me right
She got to bottle up and - got do what?
She got to bottle up and go
(She got to bottle up and go)
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go
('Sing another one')


Nickel is a nickel
Dime is a dime
Need no girl
If she won't mind
She gotta bottle up - gotta do what?
She got to bottle up and go
(She got to bottle up and go)
These high-powered women
Sho gotta bottle up and go


Got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Nigger and a white man
Playin', seven up
Nigger beat the white man
Scared to pick it up
He had to bottle up - had do what?
He had to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Jumped in a river
Couldn't get across
Jumped on a alligator
Thought it was a hoss
He had to bottle up - (had do what?)
He had to bottle up and go
He had to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Mama killed a chicken
Thought it was a duck
Put him on the table
With his legs sticking up
He had to bottle up - (had do what?)
He had to bottle up and go
(He had to bottle up and go)
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


Got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go


'I'll go ahead and lay it on her man'


I'll beat 'em, bop 'em
Pop 'em, pop 'em, pop 'em
Beat-beat-beat-bop
Pop-up, pop 'em, pop 'em


Beat 'em, beat 'em, pop 'em
Beat 'em, pop 'em, pop 'em, pop 'em
Pop-up, pop-up
Pop 'em, pop 'em


You got to bottle up and go
I got to bottle up and go
These high-powered women
Sho got to bottle up and go.
