Little Man Blues
Music and lyrics written by Dana Austin

I got a concrete mixer babe
It's paid for every cent (repeat)
And when I lay some road to you
It's long, hard, and straight - not bent.

I heard your Laundry Man popped in
He just came & went
Why settle for a squirt of starch
When you can have Portland cement?

Oh, woman, woman, you done paid your dues
One tumble in my bucket
Will cure your little man blues

I got me a big ol' nail gun, baby
There's no way to improve (repeat)
My parquet floors: l'art d'avant garde
Sould be featured dans le Louvre

I'll lay you out a knotty floor
You'll wanna bounce & move
'Cause after every nail I shoot
I oil the tongue-and-groove

Oh, woman, woman, you done paid your dues
A little bit of tung oil
Will lick your little man blues


I've got the biggest boat in town
Oh, you'll hear the ladies talk (repeat)
That when my yacht sails in and out
The swells will make you rock

I got me a pile driver
To enhance my wooden dock
It pounds and pounds that mighty shaft
All around the clock.

Oh, woman, woman, you done paid your dues
Come sail around the world with me
Come sail around the world with me
And we'll oh yes we'll put your little man
over the fantail...
A little bit of tung oil
Will lick your little man...Blues
